what our clients say
Kerryn's events are exceptional. I've been to a number of networking events over the years and why I like YTM is because you really do get to meet and connect with other people and build relationships, which I love. Its not at all transactional and you can meet a group of people who are all looking to grow their business and themselves, and the potential to create referral is excellent. The formats vary each even between a number of different styles meaning the personal learning is there as well. Looking forward to more and more in the future. Thanks Kerryn and Leigh for an amazing offering.
Kerryn's ability to connect people is invaluable. Her genuine interest in helping her business community achieve success comes to life at her YTM events, which are one of my favourite networking forums in Melbourne. Whether you are new to business networking and need some mentoring in this area, want to improve the communication between departments in your organisation or want to attend professional networking events with a difference, Kerryn's the expert to speak to!
“I engaged Kerryn to speak to the mortgage brokers I mentor to help them understand the importance of relationships and how to go about building a strong network. She is a generous and warm facilitator who provided a wealth of knowledge and engaged the group in a beneficial and fun networking session. The feedback from the group was very positive and I would highly recommend Kerryn as a presenter”.
- The vibe in the room was great in all 3 sections (pre / speech / post)
The people were lovely and very approachable and open to learning about the other person (as set up by you!)
- 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’
Thanks to the effective format, I have made business connections quicker and deeper than at any other events, and established an ongoing relationship with an ideal client.
It's not only the "speed" format, it's the organisation around it and the way it is set up to facilitate meaningful conversations.
Kerryn is a great facilitator who takes a lot of care in organising her events, from the room set up to the fascinating keynote speakers. You are sure to learn something.
"I had a great time at YTM. I got to know some people I had met before better, and I met some new people as well. I went through my database of contacts the other day and was amazed at how many people I have met, particularly in the last year or so since I focussed on networking. They are all useful contacts, whether as sources of leads, suppliers to my business or as people I can learn from"
“Great event Kerryn! Let me add my congratulations to you. Your attention to detail as usual was obvious everywhere and made our job as presenters and exhibitors easy. There was a real positive vibe in the air in the exhibition space which made for easy introductions and friendly conversations. I had a number of productive discussions with visitors and am looking forward to following those up this week.”
"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".
Kerryn’s YTM events are a saving grace, especially if like me you are new to networking. When I first entered the room I was very nervous, but Kerryn came over and quickly put me to ease while introducing me to some key individuals. I never looked back. Kerryn’s passion to connect and engage business owners through well organised events is evident by her repeat customers. She is always happy to share her knowledge and (it seems) effortlessly connect you with just the people you hope to meet. I urge you to go to an event, they are fun, enlightening and you may even learn a more about yourself!
I joined YTM networking three years ago with the view to meet liked minded business people, connect and network and by so doing grow my business. Like any networking activity, it takes time and effort before you can see results. Well, time and effort paid off as I have made numerous connections through the YTM networking events, established solid relationships and received a number of quality referrals which translated to close business and further assist in the development and maintenance of the relationship. YTM events have my full endorsement.
