Penny Radcliffe

Senior Consultant

Penny is a senior consultant at momenta. Penny is English but has been in Asia working primarily in banking and financial services for 21 years. Her banking experience and qualifications she gained in Lloyds UK were the platform to open up an opportunity to work in Singapore in 1995 for Standard Chartered Bank where she took the role of senior investment counsellor for Priority banking and Branch management.

This role was primarily a staff developmental channel. The role opened up many avenues. It quickly became apparent that not only did this role involve investment education for clients and personnel but also the imparting of multiple interpersonal and relationship skill sets for all front line staff at multiple levels. The Banks had become sales businesses, therefore Penny started to train and coach the key competencies necessary to harness strong relationship management behaviours which would make a difference to any conversation type, in line with client or stakeholder preferences. She taught strong consultative skills in many formats, whether to a few at a fireside chat, coaching ‘one on one’ in a client meeting, or in workshops and seminars holding 20 to 100 delegates. Her role quickly became regional and she spent considerable time educating across Malaysia, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Indonesia, Korea and later was asked to migrate the skills which became culturally aligned to Dubai, Bahrain and London and then the Channel Isles.

Penny scopes, designs and executes learning and enjoys seeing others improve on their capabilities. She is a successful toastmaster and puts all her energies in being given a job and ensuring it is done with all her might! She has now worked for many Banking businesses in Citi, ANZ and HSBC.
