Penny Mallory Speaker

A highly sought after motivational speaker and conference host, Penny also works in schools and prisons; to help young people get their life on track. Penny’s passion for working with elite sports people to help them ‘get their head in the right place’ has led to her working with top golfers and racing drivers to significantly improve their mental performance when competing. She is a qualified Sports Psychologist and Performance Coach.

Mental Toughness

Penny is an expert on developing Mental Toughness; the ability to deal with the stress and pressure of life. The Mentally Tough prosper in this world, and the mentally sensitive are at risk of suffering from mental illness. 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 mental toughness, and 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 BAE Systems, Coca-Cola, Grand Vision, Waitrose, Tesco, Telefonica, Klesch, Sony, 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 and mental 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.

Off The Race Track

A mother of two, she still finds time to set herself a new challenge each year; to test her own comfort zone. Last year she completed an expedition to Europe’s highest mountain, Mount Elbrus; taking the tough route via the remote north face. She is also a boxer, marathon runner and active supporter of her two chosen charities Barnardo’s and Crisis. Penny is currently training to become the first British woman to complete 7 marathons on 7 days on 7 continents. Loan of private jet sought – seriously!

  1. ESBC Annual Dinner

    I have heard only high praise from all our members for your speech at our Annual Dinner – it struck chords with many in the room, in particular your drive to achieve your goals. We felt that you judged the audience extremely well and held them spell-bound.

  2. Shaun Jardine, Brethertons LLP

    I was fortunate to book Penny to speak at one of the business to business events which we organise. If you take away the glitz of the international rally driving and the TV presenting you are left with a story which is … informative, uplifting, motivational and fascinating. Add back the rally driving and TV presenting, and you have a great presentation from a great speaker. If you get the chance to hear Penny speak or book her for one of your events…grab it.

  3. Reed Employment

    Penny’s presentation at the Reed New Deal launch, was a huge success with all our candidates. We greatly appreciated the way that you pitched your talk at just the right point, encouraging people to get out there and make it happen for themselves.

  4. Rebecca Cadman-Jones

    As a conference organiser I see hundreds of Keynote Speakers every year. Penny is one of the best!

  5. Paul Lawrence, Director KPMG

    Listening to and appreciating many motivational speakers is part of my job …. She was outstanding- one of the best three I have ever heard.

  6. Nortel Networks

    You were just what we expected. Professional, charming, humorous and you did a great job at our Hawaiian sales conference.

  7. Manager, Distributed Services Group

    I would like to pass on my thanks for the course over the last 2 days. I found it to be the most enjoyable course I have ever attended, and whilst the content contributed to that, most of it was down to the way you delivered it and your overall enthusiasm for the subject matter and the course attendees.

    Penny was wonderfully entertaining, informative and struck entirely the right tone with BlackBerry’s audience – brilliant stuff!
