I’ve delved back into the archives this week to bring you a very special lady. She is in fact the first and only woman to drive a world rally car. She’s got an amazing mindset and in today’s competitive world when only the best will do, she has perfected the art of Psychologically-Powered performance to bring out the very best in us. I’m bringing you again the wonderful Penny Mallory.
Penny tells us how from an early age she wanted to become a rally driver, how this led her into presenting and why speaking is such a passion. She talks about her love for boxing and how techniques used by Muhammad Ali inspired her to get into the boxing ring at the age of 42. Penny also admits to how many points she has on her driving license!!
Motorsport and TV fans know Penny Mallory 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 to top organisations, from individuals and workshops to audiences throughout the UK, 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 runs and triathlons; finding the courage to enter the boxing ring twice, and the physical resolve to conquer two of the world’s highest mountain. 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.
