"I attended Penny's 3 month evening course on project finance modelling organised through Lynch Financial Modeling. Penny helped me refine and develop my modelling skills a lot further than I would have been able to do on my own. It was an excellent course that I also sent some of my colllegues to attend. I have also used Penny for various assignments when it comes to reviewing models where she has been very diligent and quick in helping out.

Penny has a very deep understanding and knowledge when it comes to Project Finance in general and Project Finance modelling in particular. She has generally a solution to all modelling problems and has often come up with new better way's of dealing with certain issues. I have also found Penny to be very trustworthy and a person that I am comfortable sharing sensitive information with. "

"I attended a 3 day financial modelling course (Optimisation for PPP and PFI models) in November 2011 organized by Penelope Lynch and can definitely say that it was worth the time, effort and resources involved (I was coming from Brazil!).

Penny is a seasoned professional who goes straight to the point and delivers a lot of insights for experienced modelers. More than just teaching the basics of financial modelling (it is advised to have a good command of spreadsheets and financial models to make the most of her courses) she discusses topics that sustain a sound modelling process, down to earth, without gimmicks or opaque commands. I would strongly recommend reading her 'Financial Modelling for Project Finance' before attending one of her courses, although it is not a formal requirement.

Since she has a large experience modelling real life projects one can also take advantage of that to briefly discuss specific topics related to one's own work (but be fair: she will not do the job for you!).

Sharing points of view with other colleagues and networking is a by-product that can be considered as well since the attendees to her courses come from the best City’s and overseas financial teams.

Last but not least, besides being a British lady (or because of that) who explains tirelessly and elegantly the most intricate concepts she is resilient to most kinds of humor (but again, be reasonable!), which is a required skill if you are going to spend several consecutive days discussing the same thing with the same person!"

"Penny is the Excel guru, whose training I attended several years ago in London. Actually she was my first external trainer on project finance modelling. I was really very impressed with her knowledge of the subject (both financial theory and Excel) that empowered me for further deep self-educating in Excel modelling. "

Fazil Gadzhiev, hired Penelope as a Financial Advisor in 2006

"Penny was involved in in a major PFI project where she provided modelled support to our team. Her role was to identify changes made to the contractor's financial model, validate the changes made and undertake sensitivity analysis on the changes.

I have also attended Penny's course on Project Financial Modelling. Very useful it is too! "

"I attended Penny's course on project finance financial modeling while she was teaching in Euromoney, London. She gave me a headstart in financial modeling career. She is only a great teacher but also an excellent mentor. I could learn financial modeling in 3-4 days with Penny's teaching and was able to handle real-world financial model with Standard Chartered Bank and deliver good returns to my employer. She also helped to model foreign currency structure in the model when I was stuck in the deal long after training was over. I am highly thankful to Penny for her training. "
