High Performance Thinking – Learn how to use your thinking, feeling and behaviour to your advantage.
Penny Mallory speaks on the following topics:
WORLD CLASS THINKING, WORLD CLASS BEHAVIOUR
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.
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 (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 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 runners and triathlons; 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. 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.

I would certainly recommend Penny to anyone else looking for inspiration on driving world class performance.” Group HR Director, Human Resources, Cox Automotive
“Penny has presence and credibility on camera that few presenters can enjoy so naturally, with an enviable ability to deliver complex and technical issues in a straightforward and easy to understand way. She is a joy to work with – full of creative ideas, great fun to have around and entirely professional. Her ability to deliver her pieces to camera in one take is legendary. I should know, we filmed 67 episodes together!”
“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.”
“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.”
“Penny was a very inspirational speaker, hitting just the right chord with our audience.”

“Penny was wonderfully entertaining, informative and struck entirely the right tone with BlackBerry's audience – brilliant stuff!”
“Penny had the students on the edge of their seats, they were spellbound. She was amazing and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her.”
“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's presentation is hugely inspiring and entertaining”
“Listening to and appreciating many motivational speakers is part of my job. I heard Penny Mallory speaking with and engaging year 8 learners recently; it was a large event hosted at Charlton Athletic as part of raising aspirations for learners in Bexley. She was outstanding- one of the best three I have ever heard.”
“.. the 350 young people were stimulated and engaged by your presentation. For them to be able to hear how you were able to challenge yourself o achieve your dreams was eye-opening …It was especially good for them to hear a positive message from an adult who can relate to the younger generation so easily. They will, we hope, be inspired to see that they too can follow in your footsteps, be it in rallying, boxing or other aspects of life. Your professionalism, sense of humour and unflustered sense of purpose shone through during the day. We would thoroughly recommend you to anyone seeking to raise the aspirations of teenagers.”
Pete Le Bas, London Borough of Bexley
