Lucy Bloom


Michelle Klein



Bloom presents from the magic spot between stand-up comedian and motivational speaker.  She knows how to do business differently and by listening you'll discover how to conquer the fears that hold you back, learn why fun should be a factor in your strategic plan, how kindness to others extends your life expectancy and why change is a superpower to seek out daily rather than avoid.




With a career spanning 25 years and five continents, Klein returns to Australia from the United States, after spending almost a decade at Meta (Facebook) where she was most recently Vice President, Global Business and Product Marketing. An international business leader Klein has worked with iconic brands including Diageo, British Airways, Orient Express and Armani, leading cross-functional teams to transform brand perception and business results to achieve double-digit growth.
