Penny Mallory

Female Rally Driver & TV Presenter

Penny Mallory is a British female rally car driver and after dinner speaker who has been highly praised for both her racing and public speaking. As well as working as a sports speaker Mallory is also an established TV presenter, she has appeared on BBC’s Top Gear and has been likened to one of the most well-known motorsports TV presenters when she was dubbed the “female Jeremy Clarkson”.

Penny draws on her own personal experiences and difficulties in her work as a motorsports speaker; though it may seem hard to believe Mallory has not always been the successful rally champion and TV personality she is now, despite a relatively pleasant childhood Penny found herself troubled as a teen and turned to drinking, stealing and self-harm. Believing she would amount to nothing Penny gave up on her childhood dream of rally driving, not knowing that it would be thanks largely to the sport that she would make her way back into society.

Penny’s work as a motorsports speaker highlights the way in which the sport helped to draw Penny back out of her shell and re-engage her with both her family and local community; her talks as an after dinner speaker explain how, thanks to motorsports, she regained her confidence and learnt to appreciate herself regardless of the opinions of others.

In both her work as a motorsports speaker and as a TV presenter Penny Mallory effortlessly walks the delicate line between seriousness and humour; she balances her talks by interspersing discussion of personal pain and tragedy with funny anecdotes and inspirational tales of her success. Penny is a truly wonderful motorsports speaker, she openly discusses her personal hardships and demonstrates in both her speeches and her personality that it is the way we think about ourselves has a direct impact on our determination and ability to succeed.

As an after dinner speaker Penny is often cited as one of the most popular women working the sports speakers circuit; audiences applaud her personality and the genuine warmth she displays toward them, clients at corporate events find her talks engaging and inspiring whilst those who witness her work as a personal and motorsports speaker see the passion, energy and strength that shines from within her.
