Lucy Bloom


Lucy Bloom is an award-winning leader, international keynote speaker, consultant and author. She uses her superpowers for writing and speaking about leadership, communication, changing the world, fun, courage, kindness and creative thinking.

She’s a rule breaker, idea maker and exceptional communicator.

Lucy Bloom ran a successful boutique ad agency for 20 years before she took on the start-up challenge as founding CEO of a brand new women’s health charity. In less than three years at the helm, Lucy built the policy, procedure, team and strategy which raised $7M for a network of hospitals and a midwifery school in Ethiopia. Lucy then moved on to lead a Cambodian children’s charity as the organisation’s first CEO, transforming it from an administration function to a fundraising machine with proper policy, procedure, budgeting and strategy, raising more in 12 months than the charity had raised in any year before.

Her next challenge was as Executive Director of Inspiring Rare Birds, supporting female entrepreneurs to scale their businesses. In this role Lucy Bloom created the world’s first women-only, all-inclusive speaker’s agency, offering a commercial solution to the gender imbalance on stages all over the world.
