Leon Lloyd - Inspirational Speaker    Life After Sport- from Boot Room to Boardroom

Leon Lloyd is an unusual guy. As a professional rugby union player at the top of his game, representing Leicester Tigers and England during the Golden Era, he was quick to realise that there needed to be life after sport.

Leon Lloyd  used the later part of his professional sports career to carefully plan his own transition, spending time in the Tigers booking office, with the ground staff and even in Hospitality and the Payroll Dept to further his skills.

Leon Lloyd is superbly well equipped to share with you his story of success, the highs and lows of his successful career (his 'sweet and sour' moments), but more importantly to use his insight to share with your audience the transferable secrets of what it takes to get to the top in the corporate world, how to  be more resilient, and recognising the importance of team over individual. 

Leon Lloyd's  book 'Life After Sport – from Boot Room to Boardroom' is an acclaimed read.

Leon is a big character. Larger than life in presence and in his delivery. 

Simply put Leon Lloyd is one the most exciting recent additions to the speaker market.

Leon Lloyd - Inspirational Speaker  -  Life after Sport - from Boot Room to Boardroom

Growing up as a kid wanting to score the winning goal for Coventry City in an FA Cup Final, Leon Lloyd could hardly have imagined how his life would turn out. His sporting dreams of getting to the top were realised, not as a footballer, but as a highly successful and hugely respected centre for Leicester Tigers rugby team during the nineties and the noughties

Roll forward to 2016, and Leon Lloyd is a successful businessman and acclaimed public speaker with a successful book in circulation (Life After Sport – from Boot Room to Boardroom). He has a fast growing reputation as a public speaker, winning over audiences with his honesty, his humour and his humility. He shares his story, his insight and acute understanding of what it took to become a celebrated English International player in one of the most successful professional sports teams of his era.

His journey however has been one of stops and starts. Of high’s and low’s, his ‘sweet and sour’ moments as he fondly recalls his journey to the top. Leon Lloyd is so much more than an ex-athlete with a story to tell. His innate understanding of people, his learning about leadership from people such as Martin Johnson, the England Rugby World Cup winning captain, and his detailed insight into planning for success and creating your own luck, stand him out from other speakers. As an Ambassador for the Prince’s Trust and CNFC charity, he cares passionately about the world he lives in, and the world he wants his children to grow up in.

Leon Lloyd may not have been a World Cup winner himself, but is seeking to win his own World Cup in the world of business. He is not just a safe pair of hands, as they would say in rugby, but he brings creativity, sparkle and flair to the audiences he addresses. Do not miss out!

Leon Lloyd - Inspirational Speaker  -  Life after Sport - from Boot Room to Boardroom

Leon Lloyd was a key note speaker at a recent Charity Ball who’s beneficiary was The Prince’s Trust. Leon Lloyd has great stories to tell, inspiring words to share and great at engaging with the audience. Given Leon Lloyd’s background and success as a Rugby player, his content naturally intrigues. Leon added value to a fundraising environment and inspired the audience through his work with The Trust. 

Leon Lloyd’s speaker content is relevant to all audiences and we would recommend him to support charity dinners and fundraising events.

Nikul Patel   Corporate Partnerships Manager   The Prince's Trust 


Leon Lloyd provides an energetic, entertaining and insightful talk that engaged the entire audience. Everyone found something they could relate to and it was a fantastic way to finish our members conference, creating a really positive atmosphere. The only problem we now have, is that everyone wants Leon Lloyd to present in their regions!! 

 Jason Hinkle Head of Member Networks   ACCA Europe & Americas 

We booked Leon LLoyd  initially five years ago to speak in front of our a selection of our very best corporate partners, and we have been regularly using him ever since. Leon LLoyd is an engaging and charismatic individual, with a gift for delivering key messages to a range of audiences. Having come from the playing side of professional rugby, and worked his way through to the professional ranks of business, Leon LLoyd's take on a variety of topics is both unique, entertaining, and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend him. 

Sophie Bylina  Events and Relationship Manager  Leicester Tigers

We have engaged Leon Lloyd on numerous occasions over the past 7 years from sporting question and answers sessions to multimedia driven thought provoking and inspiring motivational presentations.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Leon LLoyd, he’s an ideal speaker with a real story and background, he researches well and prepares thoroughly to ensure we call him back time after time. Leon Lloyd works well one to one or to an auditorium of Hundred’s of our City based business clients.

Tony Andrews i CEO Under The Posts Events.

Your words of “eye on the prize” and keep successes fresh was mentioned by a number of the team who said we should learn from your experiences of sharing what we do better as a team more frequently.
 
The team liked the fact that you had to be honest in your criticism when things weren’t going so well and don’t be afraid of giving your opinion as long as the team understood that it was being done to improve results and nothing personal.
 
The day was a success overall and was enjoyed by all as it was different, the first time we had a guest speaker, and one that put some emphasis on dealing with things when they go wrong and not just a flowered up success story
