"I have worked with Penny for four years, and whilst I have been introduced to many trainers, facilitators and coaches during that time, I keep going back to her. She just gets it. She 'gets' what I need and she 'gets' people. Whilst her motivation is to grow and develop others, she is also on a personal journey to grow and develop herself, and this is makes her delivery richer and more powerful every time I am privileged see her in action."
"Penny is one of the most talented people in her field that I have come across throughout my working life."
