I had the honor and the pleasure to host Penny as a Keynote speaker at our Booking.com annual meeting in Amsterdam. She delivered a great experience and an extremely inspirational speech in front of a couple of thousand people. The content of the Fear Is Your Future talk and the way it was delivered caused a great impact and her interaction was awesome.

Penny was passionate, articulate, dynamic and added a lot of value to our panel discussion at the Salesforce World Tour Sydney. She was also a delight to deal with and we would love to work with her again – and suspect we will!
— Katie Dufficy, Director Communications Salesforce Asia Pacific
"Penny’s facilitation of the 2 day ’Fear(less) Masterclass’ with our senior team was invaluable, in providing the right environment to become vulnerable through opening up on their biggest fears and challenges through having real conversations. The team gained significant insight into each other and the traits needed to thrive in an engaged, high performing team. The feedback was extremely positive, with the overwhelming theme being that the 2 days presented the perfect platform to learn, realign and continue on our journey as a team."
— Richard Harry, General Manager
Penny spoke at our recent International Women’s Day event and was fantastic. She was engaging, interesting, interactive, genuine and inspiring. Her experience and story resonated so well with our audience, and we know this from the volumes of positive feedback on Penny’s presentation. She was also a pleasure to deal with and will certainly use her again.
— Ben Leaver, CEO, Association Of Treasury & Finance Australia
We were looking to drive some “outside the box” conversations this International Women’s Day - and Penny certainly delivered! Her Fear Is Your Future keynote was both inspiring and informative. It helped to move the conversation beyond the traditional conversations about gender, and into the realms of creating a future, one success (and mistake) at a time. Our employees left feeling motivated and asking themselves the question “What can I do to prepare myself for the future, today?"
— Nigel Davis, Organisational & Sustainable Development Lead, Medibank
Exactly what every woman and man needs to take the time out of their ‘busy’ life, to spend time working on what is important to them, what their fears are, and how to work through them.
— Australia Post Leader
Penny’s Fear(less) Masterclass was an incredible experience. Her passion and energy for people enables her to really be able to ‘dig deep’ and create an environment of honesty and trust. She helped open my mind to things I wasn’t even aware were holding me back….and how different things could be if I could let go. The sky’s the limit! I would highly recommend engaging Penny for any group who could benefit from letting go of the past and ‘thinking differently’.
— Jenni Flower, ANZ Change Manager
Penny was the star on our bi-annual NAB Labs Expo Panel, speaking about the future of work and what it means for Australia, and particularly the importance of inter-generational understanding, and learning how to build their adaptability to better manage working styles of the future.
Penny spoke with passion and provided the right balance of inspiration, challenging our NAB executives and people to think differently about adaptability and making a commitment to creating happiness hacks for themselves today - as the future is now.
