About Dr Craig

Dr Carol Craig is Chief Executive of the Centre for Confidence and Well-being in Glasgow. She is the author of a number of books including, ‘The Scots’ Crisis of Confidence’, which added to the growing debate about the relationship between self-confidence, learning and achievement.

She comes to Feile to discuss her latest book ‘The Tears That Made the Clyde’ which subjects Glasgow's post-industrial image as 'Scotland with style' to a long-overdue and honest scrutiny.
