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.
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.
Penny was the first (and remains the only) woman in the World to compete in a World Rally Car (the Formula 1 of Rallying). With 12 years of Rally Driving behind her, and 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’, ‘Accident Blackspots’, Discovery’s ‘Classic Car Club’, ‘GMTV’ and ‘The Road Show’ amongst many others.
Penny’s early years were devastated by family alcoholism and mental illness. By 14 she could bear no more and left home, never to return. She found herself in London alone, and homeless for over three years. As Penny’s life spiralled out of control, she realised that she alone could take control of her life. A chance event allowed her to realise a childhood dream of driving a Rally Car and she was hooked. She turned her life around, and against all the odds went on to become the first woman in the World to compete in a World Rally car. She made the impossible possible.
Penny’s Keynote is interactive, entertaining and thought provoking, but most importantly it compels people to take action immediately. She has an outstanding International reputation, and has worked with many blue chip clients including Coca-Cola, Grand Vision, Waitrose, Tesco, Telefonica, Klesch, Sony, Volkswagen, HPI, Jaguar, BMW, Honda, Metsec, Audi, Proctor & Gamble, Airbus, AutoGlass, P&O, Ford and many more.
Penny has completed 4 marathons (including 3 in 3 days), various hell runners and triathlons. She has entered the boxing ring for two fights and has also completed successful ascents of two of the World’s seven summits - the tough North face of Europe’s highest mountain, Mount Elbrus, and Mount Kilimanjaro, Tanzania.
Penny has published two books ‘World Class Thinking World Class Behaviour’ and ‘Take Control of your Life’.
