MY MISSION IS TO HELP PEOPLE TAKE ACTION TO BE AT THEIR BEST AND BUILD A POWERFUL PROFESSIONAL PATH
Having worked with executives from PwC, Clifford Chance, Ernst and Young, Goldman Sachs, KPMG and Deloitte, her reputation as a highly intuitive and top-tier professional carried through from the bedsides of her patients all the way to board levels of her clients.
Now an entrepreneur and founder of Alice Penn MD, Dr. Alice is a master in the art and science of change and knows what it takes to level-up both personally and professionally. Her unique perspective allows her to offer a customized coaching experience that elegantly guides her clients to find their purpose, unlock their genius and truly excel in their chosen field.
Born and raised in Cape Town, South Africa, I finished my schooling and medical degree, completed my internship years and left to further my experience by working in the United Kingdom. I lived and worked in London, settling into a busy private practice based in the financial district ('The City'). I completed a number of post graduate qualifications (Occupational Medicine, Dermatology and Women's health) and grew a flourishing practice. Despite feeling really privileged to be able to gain the trust of my patients and try to help them in a meaningful way, I knew I was not fulfilling my true potential.
After nearly 10 years in medicine I made a big career change and secured a role in one of the world's top professional services firms in London. Here my growth was accelerated rapidly, working with an excellent team in commercial and financial advisory. My focus was mostly on the Healthcare Sector, working with clients from around the globe. My career went from strength to strength and I set my sights on progressing up the career ladder. After circumstances changed in my personal life I made the decision to return to my family in South Africa.
Back in Cape Town I decided to do the one thing I had dreamt of since a little girl:
I started my own business. I work with clients from all over the world - my mission is to help others find their purpose, fulfill their true potential and truly excel in their chosen field.
