|“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”.

|“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.”

|“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’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”
