Because Time is NOT a Renewable Resource, every business needs to establish or re-examine their business and networking strategy to ensure that it remains relevant and profitable. 

Finding someone who has the experience and expertise you need can be difficult.

You need a Mentor who is not emotionally invested in your business, can help you to explore and test your ideas and  develop a strategy, independent from your business.

A mentor can help you  to examine your

  • target market    
  • business proposition
  • marketing plan
  • growth strategy
  • expenses and pricing to determine if and how you will succeed. 


The best way to build a business is to work with people you know, like and trust.  Networking  is a perfect way to find the relationships you need, whether it is suppliers, referrers, clients or  friends.  

Yet many people are uncomfortable networking and simply find events can be a waste of time. Generally it’s either because they have attended the wrong events, or they haven’t yet learned the skills they need to network effectively.

Networking Strategist

Kerryn says " Networking is a learned skill that will enrich your life personally and professionally.  

If you’ve decided that networking is a waste of time, I’d like to encourage you to consider whether your real problem might be

  • you need  to clarify  WHY you’re attending networking events and determine which events will best meet your goals and save you time and money
  • the networking events you’ve attended are transactional and promise quick customers… and that’s not really networking at all
  • you struggle to communicate the value you bring to clients or to turn the conversation round to something meaningful
  • you need to be boost your confidence

It was such a pleasure meeting the wonderful Kerryn Powell at the “Women Fit for Work” and YTM Networking event in 2015. We connected immediately and I knew her one-to-one coaching was just what I needed to take my business to the next level at networking events. I cannot thank and express my gratitude enough to Kerryn who was able to connect me with fabulous collaborators who were relevant to my business needs. Thank you Kerryn for all your direction. I absolutely love your YTM events which are run with such perfection allowing everyone to experience a real connection with each other.

Leigh Powell- Business Strategist and Mentor

I know that my clients have vision, expertise and ambitious goals, even if they are just starting out. They don’t need to be told what to do, they need someone who will listen to them respectfully, ask pertinent questions that help to explore the details and implications of their strategy and challenge so that they can identify and strengthen potential weaknesses in their business. 

My job is to help them lean into what they know you should do, take responsibility for it, and turn it into a profitable strategy.  The trick is to discover where you are and where you want to be and then identify the resources required to get you there. Essentially, we will better define and articulate what problem you seek to solve for your clients.

My background is in the banking and finance industry and I’ve worked with major banks and large corporations for over 40 years in various capacities. In the last 2 years,  I have mentored over 100 small businesses and  have unique insight into what makes business owners and their businesses “tick”.

Over the past two years my business has grown substantially and this was a direct result of Leigh’s business mentoring. Leigh’s business knowledge and coaching skills are second to none. If you are looking for a professional, caring and extremely experienced business mentor then you simply can’t go past Leigh. Thank you again Leigh for all your support over the last two years, it’s been a game changer!
