This month…
We’ll be talking about not setting yourself on fire to keep others warm with Lex Lofthouse!


Lex Lofthouse is currently a Senior Designer at JH – a digital eCommerce agency in Nottingham. Her love for digital design started at an early age, when her Dad taught her how to use Photoshop in her early teens. She went on to study Graphic Design at Robert Gordon’s University in her home city of Aberdeen. After moving down to Nottingham for an internship, she’s never left!

In her spare time she loves playing the Pokemon Trading Card Game and going to many of the gigs that Nottingham’s great music scene has to offer.

18:30: Introduction

18:40: Don’t Set Yourself On Fire To Keep Others Warm – Lex Lofthouse

Am I doing enough? Am I even doing it right? How can I do it better? What the hell is Imposter Syndrome and why do I have it? What’s a Work/Life Balance? Huh, now I’m having a breakdown… After putting her career first for the best part of a decade and then having a minor breakdown, Lex Lofthouse was compelled to make herself a number one priority. In her talk Lex will discuss Imposter Syndrome and how she learned to fail correctly. We’ll discuss negative feedback and how to deal with it, toxic environments, burnout and ‘crunch’. Plus we’ll finally figure out that work/life balance thing once and for all.

19:30: Questions & Closing remarks
