What Clients Say
"We need someone who understands how these people think, can make it easy for them to learn and get beyond fears, habits and resistance. They have to buy into their roles as leaders and the risks of not doing this."
"Penny can take the toughest critic or non-believer and find a way to reach them on an individual level and get them to ‘step-up’ to the challenge she is trying to facilitate them through."
