LUCY BLOOM is an award-winning international keynote speaker and consulting CEO. She has a professional background in the advertising industry, running a boutique agency for 20 years before she moved to the not-for-profit sector as the CEO of two international aid charities.
Her first book, Cheers to Childbirth (2010, 2020), is the much-loved man-manual on the tricky business of childbirth support, recommended by midwives and obstetricians all over the world. Lucy’s memoir, Get the Girls Out (2019), dives into her life and career, growing up on a farm in Africa, then working in women’s health and education in Ethiopia and Cambodia.
