Penny Mallory is one of the most successful women Rally Drivers and the first woman in the world to compete in a World Rally Car (the Formula 1 of Rallying). As a motoring expert, she has presented many high profile TV shows including the hugely successful Channel 4 show ‘Driven’, ‘World Rally Championship’, ‘The Used Car Roadshow’, Discovery’s ‘Classic Car Club’, and ‘The Road Show’ amongst many others.
Penny has an excellent reputation for inspiring people through speeches, break-out sessions, workshops and consultancy, she is in great demand across the UK and Europe. As a sought-after motivational speaker, Penny shares the ups and downs of her story from ‘homeless waster’ to ‘Rally Champion’, inspiring audiences to achieve greater things for themselves. Despite being told she was the ‘wrong sex’ and ‘too old’, she achieved her lifelong dream of being a rally driver. Her unique and inspirational story shows there is no limit to what you can achieve with will, determination, focus and commitment.
The story started when Penny was just fourteen. Leaving home and never to return, she found herself in London seeking a better life but spent nearly 2 years in homeless hostels. As Penny’s life was by now completely out of control, she realised that only she alone could take control of her life, and in time worked her way to becoming a sound engineer and a graphic artist. A chance event allowed her to realise a childhood dream of driving a rally car and she was hooked.
Penny has an outstanding reputation as a speaker, and has worked with many blue chip clients including Coca-Cola, Klesch, Sony, Volkswagen, HPI, Jaguar, BMW, Honda, Audi, Proctor & Gamble, Airbus, P&O, Ford, Sony, Blackberry, Mercedes Benz, Peugeot, Suzuki, Nissan, and Equity Insurance. She also consults as a performance coach with large organisations, world-class teams (including Formula 1) and individuals on their attitude, approach and mental performance. Penny hosts workshops focusing on mental approach, teamwork, communication and performance.
In order to practice what she preaches, every year Penny pushes herself to achieve something she never thought she could. Her self-development book ‘Take Control of Your Life’ has received outstanding reviews, including one from Brian Ashton MBE (England’s Rugby Head Coach), and reached the #2 ranking in two Amazon categories. Penny is a Master Practitioner in CBT and holds Diplomas in Sports Psychology, Counselling, NLP, Life Coaching and practices as a Performance Coach. She is also the founder of the weight loss product, Malory Band, which has sold like hot cakes around the world.
Organisations have never had it so hard. Increased competition and demanding customers are putting a strain on companies to up their game and deliver a seamless customer experience – and that impacts the employees. Having recruited the talent, organisations have to continue to inspire their workforce to do more with less, often in virtual teams that span the globe.
As a former Rally Champion, Penny knows firsthand how critical teamwork, leadership and motivation are to the outcome of that team. She understands that to achieve world-class results, people need to operate with world-class thinking and world-class behaviour. This one day programme is peppered throughout with stories – some directly related to her own experience and some about people who have achieved success on a dazzling scale. She shares her understanding of the qualities needed to perform at a higher level, and they can all be implemented immediately.
Penny’s aim is to leave delegates feeling compelled to take immediate action – to do something that makes a difference to their lives and gets them closer to what they really want to achieve.
We had Penny as the guest speaker at our conference this year and we found her very personable with a fascinating story to tell. It was engaging, entertaining and thought-provoking. The session was interactive and an excellent insight into elite performance. Her dedication and endless energy were proven afterwards when she drove from North Wales back to London that same night to be ready for a meeting the following day! A thoroughly enjoyable speaker.
