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’.
