Inspiration Behind Netflix Hit Movie 'Penguin Bloom'

Bestselling Author, 'Sam Bloom: Heartache and Birdsong'

Two-Time World Para Surfing Champion

Sam Bloom is a two-time World Para Surfing champion, global keynote speaker, bestselling author and inspiration behind the #1 Australian box-office and international global Netflix hit movie Penguin Bloom starring Naomi Watts as Sam.

The movie is adapted from the international bestselling book, Penguin Bloom: The Odd Little Bird Who Saved a Family. Published in 13 languages, Penguin Bloom is a collaboration between Sam’s husband Cameron, a professional photographer, and New York Times bestselling author Bradley Trevor Greive. A second book, Sam Bloom: Heartache & Birdsong, picks up the story where Penguin Bloom ended, and shares Sam’s personal perspective on facing and overcoming adversity.

Jarring, beautiful, and real, Sam’s presentations are unlike anything your audience has seen or heard before. A refreshingly honest and deeply engaging speaker, Sam takes you on an intimate, visual journey against the backdrop of her husband Cameron’s stunning video and imagery, leaving audiences deeply moved and truly inspired.

Sam shares the extraordinary highs and painful lows of life before, during and after the accident that changed her life forever, leading us on the journey back from the edge of a deep depression that almost claimed her life.

Purposeful and raw, Sam speaks from the heart and delivers her powerful message with clarity and purpose, reminding her audience that we must make the best of the present as we never know what tomorrow will bring.

We recently had the privilege of having Sam Bloom as a guest speaker at a number of Business Chicks events. Sam impacted our audiences with such humour and realness that we were all moved to tears throughout her presentation, and reminded of the fragility of life and how important it is to be grateful for all we have. Sam brought us back into the moment, encouraging us to keep reaching for our goals no matter the circumstances we’re dealt. Her storytelling and genuineness brought us to our feet for a standing ovation, and I'll forever carry her message with me, as I’m sure all our guests will.
