For the past 20 years Penny has evangelized, trained, consulted and built businesses ensuring that business’ embrace the ability to socially connect online and offline in their leadership, words and culture. An early pioneer in the social networking world, Penny created the world’s first business social network in 1998, Ecademy. This grew into a global network that reduced the isolation and provided skills for small business owner’s and leaders. Awarded an OBE in 2014 for this contribution, Penny then spent 3 years in the digital skills sector, notably building a new Apprenticeship in Digital Marketing and helping 1000 young people into jobs. Digital Youth Academy was acquired by Seetec in October 2015

Now Penny is pioneering a change in offline networking, building The Business Cafe as a destination across UK High Streets. Bridging the skills gap and providing networking and digital skills in real-time so people can achieve these needs in ‘their gaps’ during their working day. Her mission is to reduce loneliness in self employment which in a survey suggested that 83% of sole traders are lonely. Additionally, Penny and The Business Cafe operation will increase the productivity of small business through the provision of free digital software onboarding and awareness.
