When discussing imposter syndrome, it’s really common to find articles to “overcome it” but the truth is, your imposter syndrome can give you an edge.

This is what we talked about with The Brain Cancer Centre CEO + Carrie’s Beanies 4 Brain Cancer GM, Sammy McGuane on our Leading Generous Teams podcast this week.

We discussed how Sammy leverages his imposter syndrome to drive purpose.

In 2017 Sam became Director and General Manager of Carrie’s Beanies 4 Brain
Cancer Foundation. Sam leads the business and it’s people which has generated over
$22M for brain cancer research.

Since 2021 Sam has managed his role at Carrie’s Beanies 4 Brain Cancer Foundation alongside the position of CEO, The Brain Cancer Centre, where he is responsible for revenue generation, operations, collaboration initiatives, marketing/communications strategy, and stakeholder management.
