Penina’s coaching has transformed my life. Had I known what a difference it would make, I would have hired her years ago. I highly recommend her coaching to anyone who wants to overcome a painful past, break free from destructive patterns, or create new possibilities in their life. – Miriam S., Jerusalem

“Are you looking for a new speaker for your event? We had a wonderful experience with Penina Taylor. She captivated her audience with the account of her journey … if we hadn’t firmly closed the program and almost literally dragged her off the stage, they would have kept her there for hours! – Rabbi Elimelech Silberberg

Penina came to speak and the students were riveted throughout. In today’s day, when we are programmed to lose interest after thirty seconds, Penina not only held their attention, but Penina’s fascinating story and excellent speaking skills had students say she was the most interesting person we’ve brought in all year. A true pleasure. – Chezky Hoffman, Head of Jeff Seidel’s student center, Hetzliya

Penina is a charming, educated and down to earth speaker.  She drew us in and then stayed to answer questions and signed books.  The women could not get enough of Penina and had deep and lengthy conversations with her after the program. – Susan Rifkin, Chair of Programming, Jewish Educational Center – Women’s Division, Elizabeth, NJ

“There are absolutely no words to describe Penina’s presentation and the impact it had on our congregation. Everyone was touched, intrigued, fascinated and inspired. We are so glad that we brought her out to speak to us.” – R.R., Ra’anana, Israel

There aren’t enough words that can express the gratitude and appreciation that we have for your inspirational and dynamic talks that you brought to our community this past November. Your way with words, both written and orally certainly have left us with a tremendous desire to follow you through the rest of the road in your life. You left the membership of all ages truly inspired through your enlightening talks. You truly serve as a motivator for any group seeking or desiring such a speaker. I would highly recommend you to any congregation, organization or school looking for a dynamic and inspirational speaker of the highest caliber.
– Stuart Katz, [former] President, Young Israel of North Woodmere

Penina’s stories and presentation were riveting and had a big impact on our students.  they were mesmerized and hung on every word. The students found her to be a passionate and compelling speaker and she inspired the students to think and question, and their teachers saw that carry-over into the classrooms. – Esther Eisenman, High School Judaics Principal, Beth Tfiloh Dahan Community School, Baltimore, Maryland

“I attended Penina’s ‘Intentionally Me’ workshop and all I can say is, wow!  I never thought one day could make such a difference in my life, but it has.  I can’t wait to take her Level II workshop!”
– JoAnne Klein, NY
