Lloyd Figgins Global Risk Management
Lloyd Figgins is a British Adventurer and a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society, who has led expeditions all over the world. He has been fortunate to have led a life of adventure, which started when he was just 8 months old and his family were shipped out to Singapore. Since then he has been to over 60 countries and led expeditions in many of these.
Lloyd is able to draw on a wealth of experience to deliver talks that are inspirational, motivational and educational. He has served as a police officer and a soldier, trekked the Inca trail 10 times, run it once, narrowly avoided being shot in Colombia, crossed the Karakum desert, broken his neck in a surfing accident, been caught in a few coups, avoided serious harm in a couple of major earthquakes and had malaria……twice.
Lloyd is also an expert in field safety, incident management and accident investigation. He brings credible experience and knowledge to the fields he specialises in, based largely on his own exposure to risk management situations. He is qualified as a Wilderness Emergency Medical Technician (W-EMT) and specialises in providing medical training for those operating in remote environments. Lloyd acts as the Head of Global Field Safety for a major international NGO and holds an OCR Level 3 in Off Site Safety Management.
In February 2012 he completed a 3,200 mile row across the Atlantic Ocean and in doing so, he and his rowing partner became the first pair ever to cross non-stop using the notorious Morocco to Caribbean route. During his 60 days at sea, Lloyd had to overcome extreme adversity in the form of pirates, shipping, sharks and 50 foot waves.
His humour and enthusiasm are contagious and he brings many valuable life lessons to his talks. Whether it be leadership, building effective teams or how to cope with adversity, Lloyd has a story to tell.
"What Lloyd has achieved is testament to the spirit of adventure and determination required to overcome even the toughest challenges” Sir Ranulph Fiennes
