Kerryn Powell, Founder of Your Time Matters
Hello, I’m Kerryn Powell
I have lived in Melbourne all my life. I have changed careers several times and have developed strong people and relationship building skills. My years of experience in education, the travel industry, real estate and event management, have strengthened my ability to
- draw out the problem
- share knowledge
- find solutions
- see connections
- and create pathways
- build a trusted network,
- encourage conversations
- and create community.
I love people and enjoy finding out why they do what they do and I am driven by wanting to help them find the best pathway to achieve what matters to them.
Over the past eight years, I have had experience in unearthing opportunities and encouraging strong relationships between small business owners and within teams inside organisations. I facilitate professional development for business owners looking to access knowledge, boost their confidence and learn, grow (personally and professionally) and achieve.
Now known as "The Connector" and more recently, "The Conversation and Lead Coach", I thrive on uncovering opportunities for others to collaborate and connect.
It is my nature, to establish a safe and welcoming environment, whether I’m hosting a business event, leading an in-depth workshop or delivering a keynote speech. My motivation is to tap into people’s energy, enthusiasm and expertise, creating a positive vibe in the room.
Why does it matter? I have recognised that the online world impacts our face to face communication and many people feel “awkward”, lack conversational skills, struggle to make connection, feel isolated & unsupported. When I worked in Home Relocation, helping International Executive families move into Melbourne, it became clear to me that no one achieves anything alone. We all need knowledge, and a supportive network.
I believe that through building supportive networks we can enrich both our lives, and the lives of others, both professionally and personally and ultimately, the impact and relationships we have with others is a true sign of our success.
Could I help you -
Boost your confidence, take conversations from “awkward” to “awesome”, develop a strategy to help you find new leads, help you describe your value & improve your interaction with clients or Open lines of communication within your organisation by building internal relationships with your team?
I look forward to working with you.
Meet Leigh Powell, Business Strategist and Mentor
I am Leigh Powell and I joined Your Time Matters as a Business Strategist and Mentor in 2016.
Having talked to a lot of small business owners and people in the corporate environment, I don’t think I’ve ever heard anyone say, “Tell me what to do.” Most of them know what they want to achieve and they need help exploring the implications and thinking through the details. That’s why I call myself a mentor rather than a coach.
My role is to help you lean into what you know you should do, take responsibility for it, and turn it into a profitable strategy. How do I do this? Well, asking questions is the first step: discovering where you are and where you want to be, learning about your networks, resources, budget, cashflow, constraints, and more…
From my perspective (after thousands of conversations with professionals, small business owners and corporate executives) it’s my privilege to work with people as they share their dreams, their drivers and their demons to find that light bulb moment where they suddenly realise they have the solution.
I invite you to contact me to have a complimentary discussion to see if we are a good fit for each other

YTM Business Networking supports the not-for -profit organisation, Fitted For Work
The old adage of “not what you know” but “who you know” certainly applies to networking. Many people are not fortunate to have a network or know how to tap into a network when seeking employment. This is certainly the case for many of the women at Fitted for Work who often come from other countries, and need help to find work that matches their skills and qualifications.
Your Time Matters helps where possible to open up our network and connect Fitted For Work with opportunities that may help transform the lives of thewomen they assist.
Leigh Powell is a Mentor for FFW, talk to him about the various ways you can assist them, as the skill sets and needs of the women seeking employment are varied . (www.fittedforwork.org.)
