“Penny Ferguson, founder of 'The Living Leader' recently addressed our Women@SIMI event. Many of our members were inspired listening to Penny’s own story.  Her openness regarding her personal experiences trials and tribulations was emotional and how she realised that she could only be responsible for the changes in her own life was refreshing to hear, as too often we avoid looking to ourselves for answers. Penny is the living example that you can change your mind set and in turn change your life.  

Penny outlined the three key factors to being a real leader the way you think positively or negatively, our understanding of taking responsibility in work and in personal life and the third communication the way we listen to people encouraging them to do things for themselves. Penny’s talk was straight forward and common sense which can be a rare thing to find these days, as too often we are swept up in jargon and catch phrases that we lose real sight of the important role we play in our own decision making process and how we can be our own leaders.”
