We know that time is not a renewable resource and help you make every moment matter. Join our growing community of like-minded people and create strong relationships, engage in meaningful conversations, seek out opportunities and build a bigger and better business.
Kerryn Powell, Founder of Your Time Matters and of YTM Business Networking
Hello, my name is Kerryn Powell.
I believe that networking enriches your life, both professionally and personally. I thrive on creating an environment that provides a safe and welcoming space, supporting participants to reach their goals and where experience and knowledge are shared.
As the child of a small business family, a diverse career portfolio, including education, and first hand experience as a business owner, I understand the importance of a network, in finding the knowledge and solutions you need for your lifestyle and business.
We all need a supportive community, authentic relationships and meaningful conversations. Without a network you are very alone!
Known as "The Connector" and more recently, "The Lead Coach", I gain great satisfaction from uncovering opportunities for collaboration and connection.
My unique conversation-starter cards, used at YTM events or when facilitating events for others, encourage participants to share their experiences, boost confidence, challenge and endorse ideas, learn new things and create exciting new synergies.
Whether I’m hosting a networking 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 vibe in the room that is much more than business development.
I look forward to helping you have better conversations and find the connections and leads you need to achieve your goals
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.)
