Motivational speakers form just one facet of Newbury College’s student enrichment programme and last week, students on higher education and Level 3 programmes had the opportunity to meet Penny Mallory.


Penny became the first woman in the world to compete in World Rally Car. With over 20 years’ experience in sporting and business success, Penny shared her unusual, yet inspiring story. Penny has coached elite athletes and is also an accomplished keynote speaker, event host and TV presenter. She is the perfect embodiment of what can be achieved with will, determination, focus and commitment.


Course leader, Julian Bellmont, said: “Penny was an inspiration to my students – some of whom could relate to her story. It made them realise that there are no boundaries to what they can do. We feel privileged that Penny visited us three times in one week to reach a variety of students and are very grateful to her for giving up her time.”
