Official Feedback from In-Person & Virtual Events

"Dr Penn is a brilliant speaker, she is an absolute inspiration. In a recent bespoke talk, Dr Penn had the desired effect I was looking for, which was to wake up people from their day-to-day issues and pessimism in business communication and really start to think of things differently! The genuine warmth, interest and care that Dr Penn takes to create and deliver her work shine through the performance. I really appreciate the time she took to understand our challenges and gave us not only just 'pie-in-the-sky' words about how to be authentic communicators, but actual, tangible actions of how we should create and deliver messages to our teams and colleagues...all backed up with awe-inspiring examples of how to personally put them into practice and make things happen! An absolutely fantastic and dynamic keynote speaker." - Sharon, Global Corporate Communications Manager, Nespresso

"Outstanding energy from start to finish. I was positively awakened by all of the lessons I learned and I am excited to use them all." - Philip, EMEA Pricing Associate Director, Medical Devices

"This talk represents a new approach to improvement in business communication, but more importantly, it strengthened my sense of purpose and taught me how to have an impact." - Andrew, Head of Accounts for Europe, Catalyx

"The immense benefits from our unique and highly energizing experience with Dr. Penn are clearly evident! She activated our team in a way that has increased awareness and attention to “presence” and the need to have an intention about how we “show up” for our team members. It also helped us better connect our minds to our bodies, and understand how we can use our voice and presence to connect more deeply with people. I found it hugely enriching and would recommend Dr. Penn's expertise far and wide! Thank you so much Dr.Penn." - Melinda, Head of EMEA Communications & Global Communications Director, Zimmer Biomet
