She is Chartered Member of CIPD and a member of the APM. She is PRINCE2, Managing Successful Programmes (MSP), Management of Portfolios (MoP) and Management of Risk (MoR) practitioner qualified. Penny has deep expertise in benefits management and builds strong relationships with stakeholders to ensure successful delivery.

Recent roles have included a position at the Ministry of Defence where Penny led the development of a new performance management framework for the Land Equipment Operating Centre. Penny worked with subject matter experts to review the key performance questions and develop KPIs for the portfolio. This resulted in an agreed set of KPQs and KPIs and a dashboard for the LE OC portfolio enabling improved reporting, more focused decision making and
reduced paperwork for the Performance Board.
