BKindred Founder Penny Locaso’s Story

Voted one of the most influential female entrepreneurs in Australia Penny is the world’s first Happiness Hacker, on a mission to teach 10 million humans, by 2025, how to future-proof happiness.

Recently returning from the NASA Research Center Penny is a Singularity University Alumni having learnt from some of the best technology and Artificial Intelligence innovators in the world. She has been invited back in 2019 to share her pedagogy on humanising the future with the intent of qualifying for faculty.

Partnering with corporations like Booking.com, SalesForce, General Assembly, The Department of Defence, LuluLemon Athletica, Australia Post, ANZ, NAB, Medibank, and Coca Cola, Penny is transforming lives and organisations, by humanising the future.


Three years ago, Penny turned her life upside down. In a 7-month period, she left a 16-year career as an executive, relocated her family from Perth back to Melbourne, left an 18-year relationship, and started BKindred. When Penny couldn’t find a global education company, that could skill her to future-proof her happiness, she went out and created one.

Penny advocates fear(less)ness and practices what she teaches. She went viral on LinkedIn (50,000+ views) and created a global movement after delivering a keynote in her bathing suit, to demonstrate the power of getting comfortable with discomfort. 

Penny Locaso is an acclaimed TEDx and keynote speaker having shared the stage with world renowned speakers including Dorie Clark, Gail Kelly, Yossi Ghinsberg and Bernard Salt.

Penny has been published and quoted in the Huffington Post, San Francisco Chronicle, Daily Mail UK, Thrive Global, SmartCompany, Conscious Magazine, StartUp Smart, Smarter Magazine, The Age, Women’s Agenda, The Sydney Morning Herald and NZ Entrepreneur.
