Traditional networking guidelines make ‘networking’ look fairly transactional. However, Kerryn Powell makes networking more effective by arranging professional meeting “Your Time Matters” events, where participants get to know people before needing help with something or selling products and services.
Kerryn demonstrates how to make networking a regular part of your life. She has the knowledge and experience to help business people find a way to grow and maintain a useful network and she break it down into easy-to-follow steps

It is efficient and effective networking … networking that works! I think it is an atmosphere where people feel comfortable and so put their ‘best foot forward’

Wonderful. Met relevant business contacts. Following up with at least three. I have attended networking groups for years…yours was the first group to give real contacts and with you knowing and making introductions was great
— F. Pappa
Kerryn was instrumental in introducing WillowIT to people who are now important resources to the running of our business. Kerryn’s extensive experience in networking would be a great asset to any business. I highly recommend Kerryn, and her company YTM, to any business owner who is looking for prospective customers or wanting to network with peers for professional reasons
