As an international risk mitigator, Lloyd has encountered risk in many forms, including coming face to face with armed militia in the jungles of Colombia, extracting clients from a coup in Madagascar and establishing evacuation routes for personnel operating deep inside the DRC. He now uses his experiences to teach organisations and individuals the skills required to operate safely overseas. Lloyd is also a qualified Senior Incident Investigator and has led many investigations into incidents overseas.
