As an international swimmer, Penny Heyns established herself as the world’s greatest female breaststroker of the 20th century by becoming the only woman in Olympic history to win both the 100 and 200 meter breaststroke events and by breaking 14 individual world records during her career.

Her experiences, both while training internationally while in US and Canada with some of the most successful athletes in those respective countries, and while competing at the forefront of international competition, have given her unparalleled insights into what it takes to get to the top, and more importantly, how to stay there.

Not only has Penny widely addressed South African audiences but spoken internationally as far as abroad as the USA, Canada, Australia, Sri-Lanka, Dubai, as well as in neighboring African countries like Zambia, Namibia, Botswana and Swaziland.

For all people, regardless of race, creed, colour, age or gender, Penny brings a dynamic, powerful message of hope, inspiration and upliftment which empowers people to take complete control of their lives, realise their untapped potential and fulfill their material and spiritual destiny.

Mark Twain Once Said, “It takes more than three weeks to prepare a good impromptu speech.”

While even the most gifted presenter has to work at it, some are naturals at the podium, quickly capturing the crowd’s attention and leaving a lasting impression on every listener.   Penny is one such speaker!
