|“We have had the good fortune to have Julia Palmer present her interactive workshops at a number of our Executive groups since 2016. Her sessions are packed full of insights, case studies and practical tips that our groups felt invaluable, and she is one of the highest rated speakers we’ve had over the last 5 years.
Julia’s presentations deliver a great outcome for Leadership Think Tank, and a great outcome for our members. I highly recommend Julia as a presenter – she’s thoughtful, engaging and, most importantly, credible.”
Jason Tunbridge, Director, Leadership Think Tank
“I had the good fortune to have Julia present at my Senior Exec peer group this month. Her session was packed full of insights, case studies and practical tips that my group felt invaluable, and they rated her session at 97%. A great outcome for Leadership Think Tank, and a great outcome for our members. I highly recommend Julia as a presenter – she’s thoughtful, engaging and, most importantly, credible.”
|“Members took great learning from your session with high marks and many 10`s! As you know the group were unable to find any areas of improvement for you.
I believe they enjoy the practical nature of the message which has clear benefit to all.
We all enjoyed your personal style and knowledge and generally had a great day.”
Chairman TEC & KEY Group
“I approached Julia following on from several recommendations as a networking strategist to work with our TEC Chair community. I had specific objectives on what I wanted to achieve from her workshop, focusing on building personal brand, how to network strategically and how to leverage existing relationships all at C- Level. Her workshop received rave reviews from our TEC Chairs and on a personal note the whole experience of working with Julia was an absolute pleasure. I would highly recommend her; she makes networking fun and kept our audience engaged from beginning to end.’
|“Julia has the ability to teach a difficult skill to anybody, and at every level. It says a lot when people say they remember what was taught days after they’ve walked away from the event, which says a lot about the person whom had conducted the workshop and importantly HOW it was taught.”
Recoveries & Credit Risk Management, Business Banking, NAB
|“Recognising that Networking is an important Skill for all managers these days I asked Julia to run a presentation highlighting some key tips for our Supply Chain School members. We ran the session as the first one of the 2 day event and it created a Buzz for the rest of the 2 days and beyond. A great session Julia, presented in a manner and style that made it easy and non confronting for everyone.
Julia is now one of our most popular presenters at the Supply Chain Leaders Academy, as she helps ambitious managers overcome the mental blockage of making connections for business and career improvement.”
Director, Supply Chain School
|“The Beyond UTS International Leadership Development (BUiLD) Student Society is an active body on-campus focussed on providing opportunities for its members to grow. The BUiLD2LEAD Program is a 4-week initiative developed in partnership with Linkage; it involves industry professionals hosting an engaging workshop every week. On behalf of the society, I am proud to express the positive impact Julia had on all the participants. Her workshop on networking was everything but vague, boring and uninformative. She focussed on cultivating relationships touching on mannerisms, strategy, social science and its value to the person. In a span of a limited 2-hours, she imparted invaluable knowledge and confidence to everyone that attended. Julia’s presence was very enjoyable and several members even approached me to express their feelings in the session being the best way to close the program. From a personal perspective, I genuinely learnt so much during Julia’s session. I would like to describe myself as an individual who makes every opportunity a learning experience so when I thought I already knew quite a bit about effective networking, Julia proved otherwise. I cannot stress how grateful I am because thanks to Julia, I am better equipped with the right tools and insights to not just establish relationships, but cultivate them.”
Board Director AASYP
|“I was in the first seat in Julia’s presentation today (Kochie’s Business Builders boot camp). Loved her Networking skills and hints/tips. I now know my weaknesses and can improve them after listening to Julia. People often think of networking differently, but I was really amazed to see how Julia completely transformed everyone in the room to explain what networking really is about. I am definitely recommending Julia, see it for yourself and you will be surprised of the amazing ideas she has.”
President, Toastmasters Club
|“Julia thank you so much for being such a fantastic educator. I have learned a lot from this program and you, and I appreciate you sharing your experience, efforts and enthusiasm throughout the whole program!”
Senior Lecturer, UNSW Sydney
|“Julia Palmer is an inspiring keynote speaker and facilitator.
In 2009 a colleague who attended an AHRI conference brought back copious amounts of marketing collateral, and it was from one of these, that I first learned of Julia and her networking business. I called, made contact and the rest is history …
Over the years and through the various organisations where I have managed capability development, Julia has facilitated numerous events – from short keynotes to extended programmes. In all of these, the common thread is that Julia actively listens, asks discerning questions and then tailors the programme to align with corporate and business imperatives.
Julia is an absolute delight to work with, extremely professional and nothing is ever too onerous. It is my great pleasure to recommend Julia as a Networking Strategist and also her company, Business Networking Academy”.
Fay De Saram, Learning & Development Manager, A&NZ at DTZ
|“Julia Palmer was invited to speak at TNT Express Australia LINC (Lead, Inspire, Network & Connect) Inaugural Event on International Women’s Day 2014 to over 50 Australian Female employees.
I chose Julia to speak at this event from a number of speakers because of her dedication in helping people connect in a meaningful, sincere way. Julia’s brief was that we were launching a new group where women feel empowered to take control of their careers and personal development, and the first steps to this would be to build their confidence and can she help our participants do this?
What a brilliant outcome, the participants learnt some theory on why Networking is so important to a successful career. Julia demonstrated how to introduce yourself to someone you don’t know and how to keep the conversation going and even further value add was how to exit a discussion if need be in a respectful way.
Participants we given an opportunity to practice the new skills over morning tea and all left the event more skilled and confident in building their networks.
A very successful event thanks to Julia’s passion and dedication to grow a connected global community. Thank you Julia.”
Michelle Nichol, People & Organisational Development at TNT Express
|“Franklin Women, a social enterprise to support women working in health and medical research careers, was very grateful to have Julia as the guest speaker at our launch event in Sydney. Shortly after advertised the event sold out which is a testament to Julia’s reputation both as a professional speaker but also expert in her field. She read the room perfectly with respects to pitching the presentation content and also length. The result was a completely engaged room that was literally buzzing during the activity Julia’ facilitated. Julia continues to contribute to our organisation since the event. We are very grateful to have her as part of our network’s community”
Melina Georgousakis, Founder at Franklin Women
|“Julia presented a session on face-to-face networking at the 2012 Asia-Pacific Incentives & Meetings Expo held in Melbourne in February.
Julia’s presentation was thought provoking and practical. Her delivery style was engaging and she connected well with the audience. The positive ratings she received from those in attendance was a reflection of her excellent presentation skills and quality material.
Julia was very professional to deal with and delivered on expectations. I would recommend her to anyone seeking an engaging and high quality presenter”
Christine Murphy, Conference & Corporate Event Specialist

What can I say – except that she delivers, and the audience love what she delivers. And I’ve got the feed-back sheets to prove it! Knowing how to network professionally is an essential tool for salespeople and sales managers in the 21st century – and there’s no-one better to learn from than Julia Palmer.”
