Being labelled as gifted is exciting but it’s rarely easy. It can be a struggle to fit in with a society that doesn’t understand and makes us feel “different”.

Sound familiar? Is this you - or do you have a child, relative, friend that fits into 'different'.

Join Lyn Kendall for an afternoon of invaluable advice at the Double Tree by Hilton hotel in Manchester city centre where she will explain what high IQ is, the good thing about being bright and the downsides too.

We recommend this event will be suitable for adults and also juniors over 10 years old.


Educator, psychologist, Mensa's Gifted Child Consultant, advisor and panellist to Channel 4's Child Genius;

Lyn Kendall will talk about the ups and downs of having a high IQ.


13:30   Coffee and registration
14:00   Why bright sparks don’t know it all
