Penny is an executive coach with a reputation for supporting her clients who are typically working in complex situations to work with uncertainty and ambiguity, to make their best decisions and develop the confidence and responsibility for delivering their plans. She has provided more than a thousand hours of individual coaching for senior leaders, men and women, individuals and teams across the public and private sectors at national, regional and local level. 

Penny has a special interest in working with senior leaders experiencing significant career and/or life stage transitions, many of these clients in their  first corporate or Board level roles.  

Penny’s interest and commitment to personal and organisational development can be seen as a thread through her career. Prior to establishing herself as a coach, she had 20 years leadership experience in the Local Authority and the NHS, most recently as a Health Authority Executive Director and finally a Primary Care Trust (PCT) Chief Executive. She has delivered challenging performance and financial targets including turnround experience as an Interim Chief Executive. She has planned and implemented complex, strategic organisational change and supported people through the implications of this.
