Three times the charm!
Penina just finished her coaching workshop and it was profound! She is a great speaker, clear, concise, and helpful! (Did I mention entertaining too?) I recommend her course to anyone looking to spring ahead in their careers, relationships, and social life.

After Corona hit I found myself out of work and floundering. Unsure of what to do next, I contacted Penina for coaching. She helped me figure out what I wanted to do with the rest of my life, create an actionable plan and overcome the limiting beliefs that were stopping me from doing what I really love. Added bonus: my marriage improved, too. I highly recommend Penina’s coaching for everyone looking to move forward with their life.

I recently attended a seminar with Penina called Coaching with Courage, which focused on providing personal tools to those of us who support others. Penina focused on reminding us through this training that it’s important for coaches to have their own coach as well as a community of like-minded people for support. I highly recommend her program. If you participate, you will not be sorry.

"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

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'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

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

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'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

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.
