✨ Penny Power OBE, entrepreneur, Public Speaker, Author, mother, wife and Community Builder. When you hear Penny talk you will learn that she has overcome an incredible amount of obstacles and adversity, however, Penny is a happy, positive person and puts her continual success, despite her ups and downs to being ‘self-empowered’. Famously, Penny said to her husband on their first date ‘I don’t expect anyone to make me happy, that has to come from within me’, she was 24 and knew that being a victim or delegating anything around one’s own success and becoming a victim of circumstance and happiness would be wrong. Penny is a true believer in the power of ‘self empowerment’ and the way a career and a successful life can be created by knocking down obstacles and finding the right path for ourselves. This talk is especially important for Leaders to create great teams, mental health strategies and creating happy, productive workplaces.

🐬 Laurence Fishman, the Morpheus of the Accounting World, Fast Growth Business Rockstar who loves Media and Tech, Occasionally Saves Dolphins and Sings…. (not at the same time). Laurence will be taking part in a must-see Q&A around all things building relationships for success, marketing and saving dolphins.
