Lloyd spoke in a very charismatic and British manner, with the killer combination of humour wit and a touch of irony that only the very few pull off well. We journeyed with him sharing moments of nail-biting adversity through to moments of jaw dropping wonder. Without a shadow of a doubt, this talk was first class!”
