As humans, we often feel insecure and seek external validation. We all have an ego; a sense of self-esteem or self-importance that varies from person to person. Combining psychological research with personal experience, Roos Vonk explores the concept of ego, approaching it with humour and compassion, and offering a hopeful path to self-insight and self-improvement.

Roos Vonk is a professor of social psychology at Radboud University, Nijmegen. She has worked as a coach and is also an accomplished author, publishing many popular scientific articles and bestseller books. This masterclass is inspired by her latest book: ‘My ego is always right’.

In this session, Roos will guide you through:


• How your ego influences your every day behaviour; and how both ends of the spectrum—excessive self-confidence or deep insecurity can negatively affect your life.

• How to recognise and break through your self-illusions.

• How to look at yourself from a realistic lens, and techniques to become a better version of yourself.
