In this funny and enlightening talk, Molly shares the insider secrets that helped her create the most popular poker game in L.A. and New York.
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.
In my 15 years here, she’s one of the best speakers we’ve ever had. Her authenticity and connection made all the difference.
