Penny has never let negativity or her gender get in the way. Despite being told she was the ‘wrong sex’ and ‘too old’ to rally she became National Ladies Champion. Her unique and inspirational story shows there is no limit to what you can achieve with determination, focus and commitment.
Every year Penny pushes herself to achieve something she never thought she could. As a sought after Motivational Speaker, Penny shares the ups and downs of her story, inspiring audiences to achieve great things for themselves.
One example of her dedication to change and achievement is Penny’s story of overweight, fitness and extreme physical challenges. Penny was nearly 16 stone at one point in her life. Now she takes her physical fitness very seriously and is currently training to become the first British woman to complete 7 marathons in 7 days on 7 continents. She is also a boxer, polo player and mountaineer. She recently completed a successful ascent of the tough North face of Europe’s highest mountain, Mount Elbrus.
Overall, Penny has an unusual and inspirational life story. At just fourteen years of age she left home, and never returned. She found herself in London, seeking a better life, but spent nearly 2 years in homeless hostels. As her life span completely out of control, she realised that to change her situation she would have to take control of her life, and in time worked her way to becoming a sound engineer and a graphic artist. A chance event allowed her to realise a childhood dream of driving a rally car and she was hooked.
Her highly top selling self development book, Take Control of Your Life has received outstanding reviews, including one from Brian Ashton MBE, England Rugby Had Coach, and has sat at No 2 in two Amazon categories. She is also the author of the newly released book, World Class Thinking World Class Behaviour, a powerful book for anyone looking to up their game in every aspect of life.
Penny is an active supporter of her two charities: Barnardo’s and Crisis.
