In an age of information overload, we need clarity in our direction now more than ever. When you combine the latest tools to suit your strengths, the proven strategies that work today and a collaborative community to support you, you can multiply your results ten times over.

In 2009 Penny authored her book, “Know Me, Like Me Follow Me” which was followed by her Manifesto for Digital Business Britain http://www.pennypower.co.uk/DBBM in 2011 supported by Mark Prisk MP, UK Business Minister. Penny become a Sector Leader through this and learned how to help others elevate their voice in their communities and lead change through purpose.
Penny is especially focused on the Micro Business, that employ fewer than 9 people plus the sole trader and start-up. They make up 95% of the Business population and this group often find the workload and the strain of ‘going digital’ tough to manage around their already demanding schedules and business needs. To combat this resource and skill issue Penny founded the Digital Youth Academy www.digitalyouthacademy.com (DYA) bringing a new Apprenticeship to market to help young people get jobs that played to their Born Digital strengths and embed them into our SME community to help them grow and digitally transform. In the first year of DYA 350 young people were given a job and made to feel empowered by the difference they made.
