Recently described as “A woman of her time”, Julia’s message is important now more than ever.


The drastically changing global playing field, technology takeover and organisational shuffle (flattening of hierarchies) is leading to the rise of networks of teams and expanded connectivity.


Julia works with all job titles in all industries to help them develop their soft, social and emotional skills to give them the human advantage.


"Business relationships take time to develop. Don't expect relationships to be instantly profitable. Networking is not just the selling and buying process. People discuss ideas, interact and learn

“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.

Details for event planners 

Based on the feedback we receive from our clients who have booked events like yours; from workshop participants who attend our events; and from our presenter, Julia Palmer; these program recommendations will help you to gain the most out of your program.

  • Please ask us any questions that you have about your upcoming event – we’re always happy to chat with you and help where we can.

  • Julia is best suited to be slotted in prior to a lunch or cocktails; this enables participants to practice learning’s immediately. This also ensures better networking for the duration of your event, so we suggest placing Julia early on your schedule e.g. day 1 of a 2 day event.

  • Let us know if you want ‘teaser’ content to send out a few days prior to your event

  • Please let us know the layout of the room in advanced in order to plan relevant activities. Choose a room that is large enough for the group size, with good acoustics.

  • Keep us updated of the numbers attending and if there are any changes as all activities are tailored to the group size you have booked.

  • Ensure participants attend the entire session where practical.
