The DO Lectures
S2 EP9 Penny Mallory | Being Amazing Despite...Mediocrity
The DO Lectures is an ideas sharing event run out of an old cowshed in Cardigan Bay, Wales. In this series of DO podcasts, Gav Thompson chats to people about how they have achieved their amazing levels of success, as well as uncovering some of the despites that they have had to overcome to get there. In this episode, Gav chats to Penny Mallory, the first woman to ever compete in the World Rally Championship, despite claiming she was only a mediocre driver. As a child she saw alcoholism and mental illness destroy her family. Fleeing home at 14, homeless and fending for herself on London streets, her life couldn’t have been more dangerous or bleak, yet somehow she turned things around, became a champion rally driver and went on to have a very successful career as a TV presenter, stunt driver, author and speaker. Penny is a qualified Coach, a licensed and accredited Mental Toughness Coach and Trainer, and Master Practitioner in CBT. She now helps people and companies with Mental Toughness.
