Full biography of Molly Bloom

Molly Bloom Background

Molly Bloom is an inspirational keynote speaker, entrepreneur and bestselling author of Molly’s Game. She is best known for her memoir, Molly’s Game, which was adapted into an award-winning film of the same name by Aaron Sorkin. Bloom’s memoir chronicles her journey from college student to LA waitress to building and operating the largest and most notorious private poker game in the world. Her games featured hundreds of millions of dollars and players like Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, A-Rod, and Ben Affleck.

Bloom began her career as a world-class skier. While training as a pre-teen she was diagnosed with severe scoliosis and had to undergo surgery that the doctors said would end her athletic career. A year later, fully recovered, she was back on the slopes. She later joined the U.S. Ski Team and at 21 years old was ranked No. 3 in North America in moguls, but her Olympic dreams would go unrealized as she left the team to pursue other projects. This led her to what she thought would be a year sabbatical in LA.

Bloom was finishing her degree in Political Science from the University of Colorado – Boulder, and was in the process of applying to top tier Law Schools, when her assistant job turned her into an accidental entrepreneur, running one of the most exclusive, high-stakes underground poker games in the world, pulling in as much as $4 million per year. What happened next is where her story truly begins.

The film Molly’s Game, written and directed by Aaron Sorkin, stars Jessica Chastain (as Molly), Idris Elba, Kevin Costner, Michael Cera, Brian d’Arcy James, and Chris O’Dowd. Featured on Daily Hive and the New York Times as a ‘must watch’ movie, Molly’s Game is now available to stream on YouTube TV.

Bloom has appeared on numerous shows and in media outlets such as Ellen, Vice, The Los Angeles Times, NPR, Vulture, and has been asked to speak at Fortune’s Most Powerful Women, for companies like Blackrock Financial, SiriusXM Radio, and delivered the 2018 commencement speech at Colorado State University.

Currently, Molly is focusing her energy on uplifting and mentoring other women after having been the mentee of amazing, dynamic women herself. In 2020, she launched the One World Group to support women facing various challenges, especially those exacerbated by the global pandemic.

Molly is awesome! Period. I have heard many private speakers and she set the bar very high for future events. Our event exceeded expectations on every level. The only negative: no one wanted to leave. Every single attendee, without exception, called or emailed me the next day with sincere and genuine praise for Molly. Her insights from how to deal with adversity to optimizing risk management blew everyone away.

Molly’s story of success, despair, and re-invention is equal parts insightful and captivating. Her journey is incredible on its own, but watching Molly deliver it with such power and authenticity transformed a large, chatty audience into a room of utter silence. Molly Bloom shattered our expectations and we highly recommend her as a speaking resource.
I like to give the audience what Lily Tomlin calls the ‘goosebump experience,’ and that experience Molly is what I felt the first time I met you. I was so completely knocked out by your quiet sense of integrity, by your brilliance, by your sly sense of humor and by the fact that I knew that you would be able to give the audience the ‘goosebump experience.’ There is no better delivery system ever invented for an idea than a story.

Molly is a natural. Her charisma and genuine self are an amazing combination. I have listened to a LOT of speakers and hands down, your talk, energy, enthusiasm and the message was the best I have ever seen.

As an event producer I have to say Molly was a dream to work with, professional, client friendly and lovely. Her presentation to our audience of over 3000 people was first class, it was engaging, moving, funny and inspirational. I look forward to working with her again.
