Voted one of the most influential female entrepreneurs in Australia, Penny is her own ongoing experiment. A little while back she turned her life upside down in pursuit of happiness. She left a 16-year career as an executive, relocated her family from Perth back to Melbourne, left an 18-year relationship and started her own purpose driven company 

With over 20 years’ experience in enabling adaptability Penny's calling is to empower people to navigate uncertainty from a place of intention and balance rather than from a place of fear.

Penny works with governments, corporations and educators to build a more intentionally adaptable society. She has partnered with the likes of Google, Microsoft,, SalesForce, Deloitte and LuluLemon, to name a few. 

Penny created The Intentional Adaptability Quotient®. A world-first measurement tool and education program that decodes the skills required to not only navigate but thrive in complex and uncertain change.
