Motorsport and TV fans know her as the first and only woman to drive a World Rally Car. Penny knows how to compete and beat the odds, but she also knows top performance requires even more than sacrifice and maximum commitment. It also takes heart, insight and the courage to keep going and the refusal to quit. She gets it, because she’s lived it.
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.
In today’s ever more competitive environment where only the best will do, Penny Mallory has perfected the art of Psychologically-Powered Performance to bring out the very best in us.
No secret sauce or overused buzzwords, for championship teams (including F1) to top organisations, from individuals and workshops to International audiences, her engagingly authentic but wildly entertaining vision of optimised performance and positive change sets her apart.
Penny’s expert understanding of how our thinking affects our behaviour is brought together in her Keynote ‘World Class Thinking, World Class Behaviour’. Penny makes it real, accessible, and inspires life-changing and sustainable results.
These aren’t hollow marketing words, her life attests to their human truth. As a child she saw alcoholism and mental illness destroy her family. Fleeing home at 14, homeless and fending for herself on the London streets, her life couldn’t have been more dangerous or bleak, yet an inner strength and self-belief enabled her to take control of her future. She made impossible possible and has since dedicated her life to helping others do the same.
It is these experiences that have made her keynotes acclaimed international favourites for many of the world’s most powerful and storied brands, including Coca-Cola, Grand Vision, Waitrose, Tesco, Telefonica, Klesch, Sony, Volkswagen, HPI, Jaguar, Proctor & Gamble, Airbus and many more.
Her life is a continuing series of doing what conventional thinking says she simply can’t – from competing in three marathons on three consecutive days to hell runners and triathlons; finding the courage to enter the boxing ring twice and the physical resolve to conquer two of the world’s highest mountains. Little wonder that her interactive keynotes inspire taking action, and to believe you can because you can. With Penny in your corner, you can and will.
The author of ‘World Class Thinking, World Class Behaviour’ and ‘Take Control of Your Life’, Penny is a descendent of George Mallory, widely believed to be the first man to conquer Mt. Everest. If you’re ready to change, determined to move forward, committed to unleashing your best and realising all that you dream, Penny Mallory will partner in your success with coaching, keynotes and workshops igniting psychologically powered performance.
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.
