Penny’s one-to-one coaching helps you gain more visibility for what you do, if you are a leader or a business owner. By showcasing your expertise you gain credibility, and tap into that old adage “know, like and trust” – and you don’t have to do it just on TV or radio, on air, you can get visibility everywhere.

Saying the right thing, at the right time, in a way that is concise, compelling and confident feels like we’re on top of our game, and it is key to getting the competitive edge. Penny helps you do this in a supportive and insightful way.

Her coaching shows you how to take advantage of opportunities to get greater visibility through speaking in public, presenting to the board or your team, being on a panel discussion and through social media. The clarity you will uncover can be applied to every communication.

If you’d like to include media training, with support and relevant contacts in the industry, then Penny is a natural choice to help you do that, as part of the coaching. As Speaker of the Year 2016, Penny is also a great choice for those who want help and support with their own messages and performance.
