IBTM World announces Lucy Bloom as second keynote speaker

IBTM has announced that Lucy Bloom, award-winning business expert, author and international master communicator, will be the second keynote speaker at IBTM World 2019, taking place at Fira Barcelona from 19-21 November.

Doing Business Differently

Lucy will deliver a high energy session titled ‘Doing Business Differently’, where she will take the audience on a roller coaster ride full of fascinating experiences and business learnings. Lucy will explain why fun should be a factor in your strategic plan, how kindness and optimism can feed your bottom line and inspire ordinary people to do the extraordinary.

Originally from Sydney, Australia, Lucy’s diverse 27-year career has spanned running a successful boutique ad agency to becoming founding CEO of a women’s health charity. In less than three years at the helm of the charity, Lucy built the policy, procedure, team and strategy to raised $7M for a network of hospitals and a midwifery school in Ethiopia.

Inspiring Rare Birds

Lucy then lead a Cambodian children’s charity as the organisation’s first CEO. Her next challenge was as Executive Director of Inspiring Rare Birds, supporting female entrepreneurs to scale their businesses. Here Lucy 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.
Lucy says: “Let’s Do Business Differently at IBTM World 2019. The speech I will be giving in Barcelona covers themes not often heard at conferences and events including courage, kindness, optimism and fun. Delegates will discover a memorable business message to apply to their own work as conference planners and will leave IBTM inspired and energised to apply these learnings to their own businesses.”


Lucy’s session will take place on the opening day, 19 November at 9.00am in Theatre 1 during IBTM World 2019. Exhibition organizer Reed Travel Exhibition previously announced Thailand cave rescuer John Volanthen as one of the keynote speakers.
