Each week, our colleague Maria Franzoni invites one of our keynote speakers to discuss their life, work, current projects and passions. We hope that hearing more about them will allow you to get a better understanding of who they are.

This week Maria’s guest on the show is Penny Mallory who is one of the most successful women rally drivers, and was the first woman in the world to compete in a world rally car, the Formula 1 of rallying. In this week’s show Penny tells us how from an early age she wanted to become a rally driver, how this lead her into presenting and why speaking is such a passion. She talks about her love for boxing and how techniques used by Muhammad Ali inspired her to get into the boxing ring at the age of 42. Penny also admits to how many points she has on her driving license!!

Please welcome Penny Mallory
