SoloCamp Leeds: Confidence


The improvised chat about confidence seemed to strike a chord with a lot of people at solo-camp. Having not really attended an event like this before, getting up and starting the discussion off took some confidence for me! But I'm glad to have done it and it's nice to hear that other people have the same issues, and some very constructive things came out. One such thing was the need to meet physically as well as online, any thoughts?

tricks for creativity - pick two random words out of the dictionary and make a connection. If you're stuck in one space, you're not getting random inputs and therefore can't see patterns and make connections.
