Penny Mallory is a leading Authority and International speaker on Mental Toughness.
It is the Mentally Tough who thrive in this world, and in her thought provoking keynote, Penny reveals how everyone can develop their Mental Toughness: confidence, focus, determination and commitment.
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’s expert understanding of how our thinking affects our behaviour is brought together in her entertaining and engaging keynotes. 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.
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, playing polo, riding cross country, ice skating, 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.
Penny is a TEDX speaker, and author of ‘365 Ways to Develop Mental Toughness’, ’World Class Thinking, World Class Behaviour’ and ‘Take Control of Your Life’
