Kerryn Powell, The Network Catalyst and founder of Your Time Matters is running the 4th Annual YTM “Why” Awards Dinner on 30th April, at The Deck, 212 Bay Street, Brighton where 7 speakers from diverse industries compete as they  present their “why” a 5 minute presentation to convince the panel of judges WHY CHOOSE ME.

Kerryn specialises in creating network synergy for business professionals, groups and teams by initiating  purposeful action to accelerate growth through genuine learning, collaboration and mutual exchange of opportunities and has been running events for five plus years in Brighton.

From her experience Kerryn says “that best way to share what you do in your business is to articulate the value you provide through story as sharing experience connects us with others.” And that is the foundation of the Why Awards.

Kerryn created the YTM Awards in 2015 to provide an opportunity for business owners and professionals to step out of their comfort zone,   raise their profile, practice speaking to an audience and develop their presentation skills.  In previous years the topics have been WHY, WHY NOT, WHY DOES IT MATTER and this year the topic our competitors will present is WHY CHOOSE ME.

Entrants in the “Why” Awards will need to convince the panel of judges why they are different, irresistible and memorable.

While others may provide similar products and services it the “Why” that stands businesses apart.

It is an opportunity for the attendees to learn how they too could craft their own pitch as they reflect on what makes them stand out in your clients mind. If the answer is price and if you adopt this proposition then you will have a problem sustaining your business.

The “Why” awards uncover some amazing small business stories and we would like to invite the media to attend the awards to meet the entrants and discover the stories for themselves.
