Penny Pullan on Show #170: Moving from Fear and Uncertainty to New Ideas and Creativity 

Penny Pullan, founder of Making Projects Work, is a thought leader in the field of virtual leadership who brings clarity, communication, and commitment to teams and individuals.

She provides the support and tools to cut through problems and foster success, along with delivering measurable benefits and boosting participants’ confidence.

Penny has run the Virtual Working Summit since 2010 for thousands of participants from around the world and the select group of handpicked speakers aim to help professionals in a hybrid working situation.

Penny is also the author of Virtual Leadership: Practical Strategies for Getting the Best Out of Virtual Work and Virtual Teams  and has a follow-up book in the pipeline.

Penny joins me today to share how she works with individuals and organisations to navigate tricky projects and times of complex change by providing expert training and mentorship that keeps businesses engaged and involved.

She discusses the traumatic international event that led her to reevaluate the way she worked to explore the possibility of virtual leadership events and explains how she overcame technical challenges to drive the change forward.

Penny also shares how she stays calm and productive in her business and how she stays in her zone of expertise by outsourcing tasks to a virtual assistant.

“Visuals work incredibly well virtually. If you engage people, they will stay, and they will pay attention.”
