Born into a musical family some 50 years ago Penelope’s stage career began at the age of three. She progressed to school plays, piano and dance competitions and finally to professional theatre. Her progress was impeded only by a few years at medical school.
On the death of her father she partially moved to Australia to assume control of the family companies which included a successful music publishing business; publishing such composers as The Bee Gees, Pink Floyd, Bruce Springsteen, Roxy Music, T-Rex and many more. And she established a music production company, as well as a Theatre/TV company with her partner in crime, Katy Manning (Dr Who)
Penelope worked in theatre in the UK (including the West End), Australia and Canada. She appeared on Television in the UK and Australia and has written, produced and directed for Television and Radio, including pilot episodes of a comedy series.
She also designed and developed copyright and royalty systems for Music Publishers as well as a reporting/tracking system for Production Music users. She works with the Red Cross, is an ardent supporter of WSPA, has travelled extensively (51 countries at last count!), works as a photographer and has written for magazines and journals. She has also written a book entitled “Hot Stuff: the Ultimate Guide to Style for Women of a Certain Age”
Re-invention started in her early fifties and she now writes, blogs, tweets, speaks, styles, and helps other women of a certain age to find or re-kindle their passion.
She also works with women who are NOT a certain age … but are still looking for passion and their purpose and often, a reason for the way things are and how to change!
Nowadays she works as a Stylist (for men and women) and is a Lifestyle Coach; she is a Hypnotherapist and a Master NLP practitioner as well as being a Nutritionist and is an International Speaker … she also has a lot of common sense, which she uses!
Her goal? To help people create change … for themselves, for others, for the Universe … and to help make a difference in the lives of as many people as she can …
