Penny Haslam Motivational Speaker - Reviews


Penny’s remote session for our EMEA leaders was sensational and they’ve gone on to use what they learnt to great effect. What was also highly impressive was how she engaged them through the camera and held their attention from start to finish. The feedback has been fantastic.

Feedback has been amazing!

Penny absolutely lived up to her reputation! She delivered a ‘Make Yourself a Little Bit Famous’ 90-minute session for Adobe Women - and the feedback has been amazing. She's fun and engaging, she makes you think and people left with tangible actions. I highly recommend.

Funny, engaging, informative and professional are how I'd best describe you Penny! You were professional from start to finish and the whole process was seamless. The fact that attendees are still talking about what you said explains that our money was well spent.
