Leadership and Team Performance Speaker UK


“Penny has to be one of the best leadership and team performance speakers  in the UK-

she has the most extraordinary ability to inspire her audience to make immediate changes”

"Utterly superb!"

"We’re building a new Hotels team here at Aprirose, and we needed a half-year energy & momentum boost. 
We made the perfect choice – Penny was amazing!  Every member of our team was super-engaged for the entire session, and Penny’s own story is nothing short of inspirational.
The whole raft of challenges we thought we collectively faced  were completely achievable by the end of it.  What was all the more impressive was Penny’s ability to tailor-make the session so well to our company and our needs, cutting through any negativity, and transforming our frustrations into positive energy.   
We’re now in so much better shape. We’re coming back for more Penny, be sure of it! Thank you."
Kym Kapadia, Chief Commercial Officer, Aprirose Real Estate investment


A great leadership and performance speaker should be an inspiring game changer. Penny believes the best speakers challenge existing thinking and promote new behaviour. Penny’s unique funny and insightful style, proven with International audiences is just that; challenging, experiential and interactive.

Penny draws on her experiences as a pro Rally Driver, multiple marathon runner, mountaineer and boxer. Having also worked inside and alongside World Class Teams and all sectors of business, her keynotes have become acclaimed favourites for many of the world’s most powerful brands. She will energise your delegates and deliver a fresh (and often unconventional) perspective that will change the way you think, behave and do business.

She knows from personal experience that peak performance requires much more than sacrifice and maximum commitment. It also takes heart, insight and the courage to keep going and refusing to quit. Mental Toughness plays a critical role in achievement and Penny shares an insight into how you can develop your own mental toughness immediately.

Years of being immersed in a world of intense competition and pressure, surrounded by World Class performers, Penny’s obsession with Elite Performance set in. She discovered, first hand, what it takes to be at the top of your game; to beat the best. 

Leaders have one thing only – followers. That’s it. A follower is someone who voluntarily goes where you are going. High Performing Leaders create energy and enthusiasm by inspiring, more than they drive, so the teams behave more ‘pull’ that ‘push’. They share they vision of the future that doesn’t yet exist and build a team of followers that will give blood sweat and tears to deliver the goal.

Great leaders allow their people to thrive and create. They don’t constrain talent or set boundaries to thinking, innovating and creating. They share their vision of the future they are trying to build and enthuse followers constantly. A team leader must be trusted, because with trust conflicts can be resolved. A lack of trust slows down everything.

Audiences respect her track record and have made her keynotes acclaimed international favourites for many of the world’s most powerful brands, including: Sainsbury’s, Coca-Cola, Grand Vision, Waitrose, Tesco, Telefonica, Klesch, Sony, Volkswagen, HPI, Jaguar, Proctor & Gamble, Airbus and many more.

Penny is the author of ‘World Class Thinking, World Class Behaviour’ and ‘Take Control of Your Life’.

If your audience is open to change, determined to move forward, committed to unleashing their best Penny Mallory will partner with you to build your most successful event yet.

Spice up your conference  and excite your audience with one of the UK’s most inspiring and entertaining female speakers in the UK.

Unleashing the Psychology of Success 

Success really is achievable for everyone, but because the challenges and obstacles that must be overcome are won and lost in our minds, success requires a winning mindset.  By learning how to develop winning habits you’ll think – and perform – like a champion.

Avoiding the Balanced Mediocrity Trap

Expecting extraordinary results from a life in the middle of the road is a path to mediocrity.  Ironically, seeking balance in everything short-changes everything. Extraordinary results require our time and energy focused on what matters most, to make the impossible possible.

Get Comfortable Being Uncomfortable

From childhood most of us have been taught to resist and avoid uncomfortable at all costs, but it’s a best/worst case example of well-intentioned misguided advice.  This is, because what makes us uncomfortable can summon our best, building confidence and self-esteem.

Maximised Reward Requires Managing Risk

Playing it safe and refusing to leave your comfort zone may be a recipe for failure, but risk is scary. Champions learn to open their minds to possibilities, managing risk and leveraging it to their advantage. There is no loss; you’ll succeed or learn from it, and both are big wins!

Believe in Non-Stop Innovation – lessons from F1

It’s the secret to staying ahead, not falling behind, by continuously shifting into a higher gear, turning ambition into achievement. Instead of settling, find the courage to demand more and create a culture of innovation that doesn’t look for the future in the rearview mirror.

Marginal Change Powers Amazing Results

It’s how good becomes great, and great becomes extraordinary. Incremental, seemingly marginal improvements may seem like baby steps, but at the elite level, these thoughtful but modest changes are the fine-tuning that transforms your performance for the better.

The Genesis of World Class Teams

Learn how to take your team higher, faster and keep them there. At the heart of every great team is a leader with the vision and skills that see beyond Me to We. They‘ve learned how to inspire teammates to believe in themselves, put the team first and aspire to excellence.

Accelerate through Change to Victory

Change is both inevitable and a constant, but how we deal with it is our choice.  Don’t fear change, embrace it, accelerate through it. Doing that makes impossible, possible. Learn to be flexible, think creatively and to communicate in a way that builds trust and succeeds.

It’s Time to Put Self-Limitations Behind

Many of us are our own biggest obstacle. Break free, refuse to accept what is and focus on what can be. Redefine your potential with an all new resolve to harness your full potential and unleash what’s no longer trapped inside and is no longer holding you back.



Penny delivered a Keynote at our Sales and Marketing conference and wowed the audience. She provided inspiration as well as excellent practical advice . She cleverly weaved together personal anecdotes with live feedback from the audience and made a real difference to our event. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Penny for any corporate event.

NMP Live

Penny not only gave an outstanding keynote speech but also hosted our event immaculately – even when there were last minute adjustments to the presentations. She spoke honestly and with a depth of knowledge and understanding that engaged the audience, created empathy and pulled us in to be inspired and appreciate the joys of a strong work ethic, pride in a job well done and an enthusiasm to always try harder. Your experience, and achievements in World Rally gave our motor industry audience the opportunity to enjoy some of the ‘inside stories’ that are always more fun and appreciated coming from someone who was an integral part at the time.

I met Penny at the Advanced Manufacturing & Engineering Leadership Academy. She was the keynote speaker and her speech made a powerful impact on myself and the rest of the audience. Penny has a remarkable background and career and she is able to share her life lessons & leadership insights in a very engaging, witty and compelling way. Her speech was really inspirational and the highlight of the event for me, and I wanted to share that experience with the rest of my business. We invited Penny to host a learning session for our Engineering team. I received great feedback from the team afterwards, with many expressing how Penny’s leadership lessons really resonated with them. It certainly gave some food for thought and has provoked some interesting and healthy discussions amongst the department.’ I highly recommend Penny to any organisation who want to enhance their team’s leadership skills or are looking for an inspirational & motivational session.
