Meet our founding partners:

Penny Holdsworth – Co-Founder and Director

Penny has a real, lifelong passion for helping people – for unlocking their potential and helping people to see the value they have to offer.

Before setting up AurumGold, Penny spent 15 years working in Pharmaceutical Sales, promoting products she believed would have a positive difference to people in their everyday lives. Penny has also established and managed two successful businesses.

A mother of 3 and grandmother of 4, Penny cherishes the time she spends with her family. In addition to being a keen gardener, Penny enjoys staying active by cycling and hiking in the great outdoors with Phill. Penny likes to draw, finding fulfilment in expressing herself through art. 

Phill Holdsworth – Co-Founder and Director

Phill is a personal development specialist with a wealth of high level experience in the charity, finance and manufacturing industries.

Prior to founding AurumGold, Phill spent a 15-year career developing people’s skills at leading organisations in the manufacturing and finance sectors, before embarking on a rewarding corporate-level role at a leading debt counselling charity. Championing the cause of society’s most vulnerable and marginalised, Phill represented the interests of the charity to government departments, institutes and trade bodies across the UK.

Outside of work, Phill loves the great outdoors and is a keen ornithologist, enjoying hiking in the stunning countryside with Penny. He likes to keep active, and enjoys mountain biking, and playing walking football in his hometown of Harrogate. Phill also holds a season ticket at Harrogate Town.
