Your Time Matters SO…

“Networking With a Twist” Helps You Get Maximum Mileage Out Of Your

Business Networking Investment

Your Time Matters “Networking With A Twist” Events (currently held in Brighton and launching in Kew -19 July) are designed to:

• Create relevant meaningful conversations that lead to opportunities

• Deliberately match you with like-minded business owners that can help you achieve your networking goals

• Ensure you gain maximum value from the time and money you invest in networking


"Participants find that listening to others and answering questions about their business helps them find new ways to describe their value and create meaningful connections with others .To gain maximum benefit from the time and energy invested in our events, I look at the guest list and deliberately partner you with complementary or synergistic people" - Kerryn Powell , Organiser and Founder of Your Time Matters

Why is it called “Networking with a Twist”?

Because we’re different.

Have you ever gone a networking event and been:-

• Monopolised by someone who was trying to make a sale?

• Interrupted every time you found someone worth listening to by the ‘agenda’?

• Inundated with business cards… most of them meaningless and irrelevant?

• Frustrated because you didn’t get to talk to anyone relevant?

• Awkward and embarrassed because you didn’t know anyone and didn’t want to interrupt?

We have… and we hate it! As business owners ourselves, we know time is a scarce and non-renewable resource. Yet networks are critical if we are to gain access to the people, services, products, and ideas we need. That’s why we designed a different type of networking event that delivers maximum value in minimum time and makes sure you aren’t standing on your own.

In addition to ample opportunity for conversation during open networking and table conversations, this month our valuable -

BONUS insight : "Business Ownership is not a Life Sentence …you can GET OUT”

How Saleable is your Business? Is your Business Ready to Sell at a moment’s notice?

Building a Business into an Asset may result in it possibly being the largest asset you'll ever own, if not second after your home. So NOT “Starting with the End in Mind” (regardless of how old it is) when you’re ready can result in all the blood, sweat, tears, time and money you’ve invested resulting in close to nothing!

Knowing how to build a business that’s worthy, understanding where its value lies, finding a way to GET OUT as profitably and seamlessly as possible, means you need to think about what needs to be done and how to do it

You will then be able to

• define what it means to have a saleable and profitable business
• identify the key attributes a buyer will look for
• determine your business strengths and the advice you will need

"The networking was brilliant- not only the idea but the tips and how to approach it with no ‘sales pitch’ or ‘elevator pitch’ was very refreshing”.

M.Dulberg, WebbyWeb Designs, 2016

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, August, 2016

A note from the organiser, Kerryn Powell....

"Having attended numerous networking events, I have found that the events I enjoyed the most have been where I come away feeling I have learnt something, connected with like-minded people and felt I have not wasted my time. This is an opportunity for all business owners (both men and women).

There is so much knowledge and experience to share!

With our events, it does not matter if you know very few people, or are new to networking, or find it overwhelming as with the format we have created, and it is easy to have a good conversation where everyone is involved and makes new connections.

Our events ran throughout the year, and we look forward to connecting more business owners and helping them find the opportunities that will assist them to achieve their desired outcomes. Our events are not only insightful, but fun!

YTM supports the not -for - profit organisation -Fitted For Work, who have assisted 24000 disadvantaged women in seeking employment over the past 5 years.

Look forward to meeting you...remember to come prepared with lots of business cards!

Please do not hesitate to contact me, if you have any questions
