4. It's all about you

Every single talk I deliver is tailor-made for that audience. I work hard to get under the skin of your team, organisation or sector, so my content is bang up-to-date and relevant to your delegates. As a former journalist, this is second nature – so, I might be asked to interview relevant people in your organisation, as well as research the latest trends and find case study examples that your audience can relate to. I have an ability to hit the nail on the head and say it like it is, whether it’s in a keynote or interactive talk.

5. Penny will help promote your event

With a TV background, I love creating bespoke video content for you to use and share before your event. I was dubbed a top ten social media influencer by the global firm Condeco - so I can jump on social media, if that’s appropriate, before, during and after your event. And if there’s something that will help you promote your event internally, I'm always happy to do what I can.

6. Zero celebrity attitude

I have an impressive BBC pedigree, but absolutely no ‘celebrity attitude’. I'm down-to-earth, polite and efficient. I'll turn up early to hang out with the audience and to get to know them. And if you need it, I’ll attend receptions and dinners with the top team or sponsors and clients. Why? Because I'm not a ‘show and go’ celebrity, I'll put you first.

7. She's a woman

It can sometimes be challenging to find a really good female speaker, for many reasons. We do exist, I promise you! Booking a strong, funny woman as your keynote speaker, or to deliver a talk at your event, helps diversify your lineup. A no-brainer when you want to reflect your audiences. If my content isn’t right for your event on this occasion, then I can recommend a raft of other top females who speak on a range of subjects, to fit what you’re looking for.

8. Panel perfection

I'm a professional panel host and author of the award-winning business book Panel Discussions - The Ultimate Guide.

If a panel discussion is going to be part of what you're doing, I also make an entertaining and energising panellist. It can help you get away from the danger of having a ‘manel’ (all male panel!).

9. A breeze to work with

I know you're busy as hell and the last thing you need is a speaker who’s a pain in the proverbial. So, I make your life easy with clear and responsive communication, once you’ve booked me to speak at your event. You can call me anytime and I’ll be there for meetings, rehearsals and tech checks where relevant.
