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.– Keith Brooks - Chairman TEC 29, KEY
Julia Palmer is very good at what she does, ability to teach a difficult skill to any body, 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. She is very professional, extremely punctual and prompt throughout the process.– Recoveries & Credit Risk Management, Business Banking, NAB
I’ve had the pleasure of having Julia Palmer engage with my audiences a number of times over the last couple of years, presenting at high profile events which Sales Effectiveness Australasia has hosted. 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.– Principal, Sales Effectiveness Australasia
Julia 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……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.– People & Organisational Development at TNT Express
