Penny Mallory's 2022 biography

About Penny Mallory

Penny works with people, teams and organisations that are under extreme stress and pressure, facing insane targets and ambitious deadlines to develop confidence, resilience, determination, motivation and focus.

The Mentally Tough thrive in this world, and everyone can develop their Mental Toughness.

Motorsport and TV fans know her as the first and only woman to drive a World Rally Car for Ford Motor Company in the World Rally Championship. 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 great heart and courage to keep going and maintain the refusal to quit. She gets it, because she’s lived it.

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 you.

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 Keynotes ‘Accelerate your Mental Toughness ‘ and ‘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 the 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 Microsoft, Google Cloud, Santander, 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.

Penny is a TEDX speaker, and author of ‘World Class Thinking, World Class Behaviour’ and ‘Take Control of Your Life’.

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.

Penny is living proof that building and developing Mental Toughness are vital if you are to thrive. Not only has she competed in the World Rally Championship, she has run multiple marathons, climbed the worlds highest summits, and fought in two boxing matches, amongst many other things!

Penny is a Qualified Psychological Performance Coach, Mental Toughness expert and Master practitioner in CBT.

Penny Mallory's 2022 talks & topics

Increase Mental Toughness - Transform Performance

The Mentally Tough prosper and succeed in today’s fast pace of change and innovation. Increasing resilience, focus, confidence and attitude transforms performance and profitability. With increased Mental Toughness we can learn to manage the stress and pressures we all face. Unleashing the Psychology of Success Success really is achievable for everyone, but because the challenges and obstacles that must be overcome are won and lost in our minds, success requires a winning mindset. By learning how to develop winning habits you’ll think – and perform – like a champion. Avoiding the Balanced Mediocrity Trap Expecting extraordinary results from a life in the middle of the road is a path to mediocrity. Ironically, seeking balance in everything short-changes everything. Extraordinary results require our time and energy focused on what matters most, to make the impossible possible. Get Comfortable Being Uncomfortable From childhood most of us have been taught to resist and avoid uncomfortable at all costs, but it’s a best/worst case example of well-intentioned misguided advice. This is, because what makes us uncomfortable can summon our best, building confidence and self-esteem. Maximised Reward Requires Managing Risk Playing it safe and refusing to leave your comfort zone may be a recipe for failure, but risk is scary. Champions learn to open their minds to possibilities, managing risk and leveraging it to their advantage. There is no loss; you’ll succeed or learn from it, and both are big wins!?

Behavioural and Culture Change

World-class thinking, world-class behaviour

Thinking and performing at the highest level requires breaking free of our self-imposed limitations and adopting World Class basics:

The proven fundamentals of Championship Behaviour. When you do, you’ll discover truly extraordinary results are within your reach.

  • 40-60 minute Keynote
  • 30 min or 1 hour Breakout session
  • 2hr – 1 day Workshop
  • Consulting with teams/individuals

To thrive in today’s ultra competitive, fast paced business world, we need to drive meaningful change within ourselves and everyone around us. You can’t afford to think and behave anything less than World Class if you want to compete, thrive and win. But how can you achieve this? What makes the best people and organisations stand out? Just what is the secret of their success?

The good news is that the top performers don’t possess any magic formulas or gifts that you can’t possess. They simply employ a few World Class basics. World Class Thinking and World Class Behaviour starts with your mindset. With the right attitude, approach and mindset you will optimise your commitment, talent, creativity, opportunity and results. Being World Class is a choice. Is it a choice you can afford not to make? Delegates will be challenged to think about:

  • How your thinking affects your behaviour
  • You can do it the F1 way
  • Why risk is essential to success
  • Without continual innovation, you’ll be in reverse
  • How to build relentless persistence
  • A great attitude is the powerful fuel
  • Seek to DISprove your own self-limiting beliefs
  • Accelerate skill through deliberate practice
  • Why you must get comfortable feeling uncomfortable
  • How Rally Drivers have nailed effective communication

Get Comfortable Being Uncomfortable

From childhood most of us have been taught to resist and avoid uncomfortable at all costs, but it’s a best/worst case example of well-intentioned misguided advice. This is, because what makes us uncomfortable can summon our best, building confidence and self-esteem.

The Genesis of World Class Teams

Learn how to take your team higher, faster and keep them there. At the heart of every great team is a leader with the vision and skills that see beyond Me to We. They‘ve learned how to inspire teammates to believe in themselves, put the team first and aspire to excellence.

Believe in Non-Stop Innovation

It’s the secret to staying ahead, not falling behind, by continuously shifting into a higher gear, turning ambition into achievement. Instead of settling, find the courage to demand more and create a culture of innovation that doesn’t look for the future in the rearview mirror.

Leadership and teamwork

Penny challenges conventional thinking on how leaders and teams become truly effective. Having worked inside a Formula 1 team as a Performance Coach she shares her experience and stories of how genuinely effective leadership and teamwork can transform an organisation. Leaders rarely show the empathy required to build a strong team, and they rarely ask the most important questions of all: ‘What is your personal purpose/ Why are you here? Knowing and understanding the purpose of every individual team member is the starting point of a meaningful and powerful team. Penny identifies the most important elements of a successful team (vision, purpose, planning, practice, passion) and displays how they can be implemented immediately, in business and relationships!

Unleashing the Psychology of Succes

Success really is achievable for everyone, but because the challenges and obstacles that must be overcome are won and lost in our minds, success requires a winning mindset. By learning how to develop winning habits you’ll think – and perform – like a champion.

Maximised Reward Requires Managing Risk

Playing it safe and refusing to leave your comfort zone may be a recipe for failure, but risk is scary. Champions learn to open their minds to possibilities, managing risk and leveraging it to their advantage. There is no loss; you’ll succeed or learn from it, and both are big wins!

Accelerate through Change to Victory

Change is both inevitable and a constant, but how we deal with it is our choice. Don’t fear change, embrace it, accelerate through it. Doing that makes impossible, possible. Learn to be flexible, think creatively and to communicate in a way that builds trust and succeeds.

Making the impossible possible

Penny Mallory tells her story of leaving home at 14, desperate and alone, following a family breakdown. Alcoholism and mental illness in the family proved to be too much for Penny and she close to walk away. After three years of homelessness, she hit rock bottom. In a life changing moment of clarity, she chose to try and enter the world of Rally Driving which had been a childhood dream. Against all the odds, she became the first woman in the World to compete in a Ford Focus World Rally Car for the Ford Rally Team. Her story is funny, though provoking but more than anything, inspiring. Good news –  inspiration is infectious!

Building & Leading a High Performance Team

Penny has extensive experience, over 20 years, of competing and coaching inside World Class Teams. She has insights into the diverse worlds including Formula 1, European Golf, International ballet, Olympic boxing and World Rally. She shares the secrets of how great leaders build High Performing teams.

Increasing Confidence and Visualising Success

Turning Ambition into Achievement

What is the Point? Less is more - using clarity to get extraordinary results

Thriving In difficult times

Innovative Thinking

Avoiding the Balanced Mediocrity Trap

Expecting extraordinary results from a life in the middle of the road is a path to mediocrity. Ironically, seeking balance in everything short-changes everything. Extraordinary results require our time and energy focused on what matters most, to make the impossible possible.

Marginal Change Powers Amazing Results

It’s how good becomes great, and great becomes extraordinary. Incremental, seemingly marginal improvements may seem like baby steps, but at the elite level, these thoughtful but modest changes are the fine-tuning that transforms your performance for the better.

It’s Time to Put Self-Limitations Behind

Many of us are our own biggest obstacle. Break free, refuse to accept what is and focus on what can be. Redefine your potential with an all new resolve to harness your full potential and unleash what’s no longer trapped inside and is no longer holding you back.

The Psychology of Success

Open your mind to new possibilities and anything becomes possible. But how would you go about ‘opening your mind’ or start to use ‘flexible thinking’? Penny is a Master Practitioner in CBT and a Performance Coach who works with everyone from world class teams to young offenders, to help them to improve their performance. Penny shares the secrets to changing thought sand behaviours to get what you want in life.

Building a World Class Team

Using Risk to Maximise Reward

Achieving Focus and Purpose

Everest - the incredible story of George Mallory, the first man to conquer Everest, told by his descendant!

1. You have at least 20% more to give

You are almost certainly not operating at your maximum ability, so how would you start to discover that missing 20% you have got tucked away? What can you start to do today that will push you, and the people around you, into uncharted territory? Remember, people love to be involved in creating something extraordinary.

2. Stop innovating at your peril

Stop innovating and creating and you will be moving backwards, allowing the competition to power ahead. How could you create a culture and environment where innovation, and innovative thinking, is a normal part of every day. What is currently taking 4 months that could take 2 weeks? What could YOU do the F1 way?

3. Stop trying to achieve a balance

Stop striving to achieve a balance in your life. Time on one thing means time away from another, That makes balance impossible. Extraordinary results require focus, attention, commitment and time. Live in the middle of a balance line, attending to all things, and everything will get short changed. Don’t expect amazing results from the middle of the road.

4. Unchartered territory requires risk

Start to discover how you can make uncomfortable decisions that can lead to big change, real growth and discovery. With flexible and optimistic thinking you will be open to new possibilities. Take a risk. You will either win or learn. There is no loss. And there is no loss in learning. Can you think of a World Champion that got there without taking risks?

5. Change requires something to stop and something to start

Check your attitude to change – are you an advocate of change, are you resistant, or just compliant? What about the attitude of the people around you? For something to change, something must stop and something must start. What will you start, stop and continue to ensure this change takes place?

6. Your self limiting beliefs are holding you back

If you have been trying and failing to reach certain goals it could well be due to a bunch of self limiting beliefs that you hold about yourself and the world around you. Although you may not be conscious of these most of the time, they will be constraining you and your ability to live the life you dream of. Start looking for evidence that DISproves your self limiting beliefs.

7. The magic happens outside your comfort zone

Society conditions us to believe there should be no discomfort in life. We resist things that feel tricky or uncomfortable. But the reverse is true – the things that makes us uncomfortable can be the very things that challenge us, build our confidence and self esteem. Get comfortable being uncomfortable.

8. Start communicating like a Rally Driver

You may never achieve you goals until you start to communicate openly and honestly with everyone around you. Open communication increases trust, a sense of belonging and a feeling of being valued and appreciated. All these attributes feature in the top 10 workplace motivators.

9. You are your biggest obstacle

The greatest people on earth were not born great – they all started from a place of not knowing what they were doing. But they persisted, failed, persisted, failed. They fell down 9 times but got up 10. The biggest obstacle you may ever face is you, your mind and your attitude. Move away from a rigid, fixed mindset and towards an open flexible mindset that offers up options and possibilities.

Mental Toughness

If your clients are looking for a speaker that can connect and resonate on this massively important issue, but importantly offer some practical takeaways and tasks for the audience to implement immediately, that will reduce those feelings of stress and anxiety, then Penny can help.

Her ‘Mental Toughness’  keynotes and  workshops will help people to:

  • Develop strategies to deliver under intense pressure
  • Increase a sense of control, commitment and confidence
  • See every challenge as an opportunity
  • Develop and sustain Mental Toughness

Building Mental Toughness – confidence, resilience, focus and determination – is now more important than ever.
