Motivational/Inspirational Speaker - Penny Mallory is a leading Authority on Mental Toughness. The Mentally Tough thrive in this world, and everyone can develop their Mental Toughness: confidence, focus, determination and commitment.

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 Keynotes ‘Accelerate your Mental Toughness ‘ and ‘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.

Keynote speeches, workshops, roundtables and coaching


A thought-provoking, unusual and entertaining keynote with lots of tasks and takeaways, for unlimited number of participants. Penny’s keynotes promote action from her audience. Alongside telling her own inspirational story, she describes the elements of Mental Toughness and challenges the audience to commit to several tasks (some more pleasant than others) to build their own Mental Toughness immediately. When people can better cope with extreme pressure and stress, they are better able to meet insane targets and deadlines and build a more productive, successful and happy team. Penny’s keynotes inspire action, and to keep the momentum going this can be followed up with Workshops, Coaching and Mental Toughness podcasts.



Workshop for unlimited participants, up to 4 hrs Facing the ‘new world of work’ with renewed Mental Toughness. The world is heading towards a whole new chapter, as it begins to emerge from the pandemic, and exciting though this chapter is, inevitably a whole new set of challenges, opportunities, changes and hurdles will present themselves for every sector of business.


Inevitably weary, some are perhaps grieving, and for many the idea of embracing new ways of working and rising to the challenges of the 'new world' add a whole new layer of pressure. If your businesses is to prosper your people will need to be firing on all cylinders and mentally tough enough to be able to perform at the peak of their abilities, stand up to the pressures, deliver on the targets and meet the ambitious deadlines.

There are 4 aspects to Mental Toughness, and each is explored in this intensive, interactive and experiential Roundtable session. The participants will be able to explore each aspect fully, develop their own personal plan of action, as well as one for their team where relevant, and be able to learn from each other.


Each will leave with a range of tools and techniques that will enable them to achieve both personal and team Mental Toughness and develop renewed energy that will enable them to fully embrace this 'new world' and achieve the high performance your business needs.


This Roundtable works well with teams and groups of up to 30 people of all levels - Mental Toughness is a critical quality everyone benefits from!



Your Mental Toughness can be measured! The online assessment takes around 12 minutes to complete and provides a 17 page report on your confidence, commitment, control and your approach to challenges. You’ll then have a 1 hr zoom feedback session with Penny to identify areas for developing your Mental Toughness. You will reveal your own levels of Mental Toughness and identify your areas of Mental Sensitivity. You’ll see how you compare with the rest of the population, where you can develop, and how it will benefit you. The Mental Toughness assessment is a unique psychometric measure that measures Mental Toughness which describes the mindset that every person adopts in everything they do. It is closely related to qualities such as character, resilience, grit, etc.



Penny’s expert understanding of how our thinking affects our behaviour is brought together in Mental Toughness coaching, with individuals and teams. Penny works with all levels of management, delivering a coaching style that is real, accessible, and inspires life-changing and sustainable results. The Coaching program includes a Mental Toughness Assessment at the beginning and end of the programme.
