BUSINESS CONFERENCE 2017
Born in Kenya, Lloyd was privately educated in Surrey, before working first as a commodity broker and then in business development roles. He moved to Eastbourne to launch a political career, becoming the Liberal Democrat parliamentary candidate and then MP for the town. First elected in the 2010 general election, he served for all five years of the 2010-15 UK Parliament and supported the Cameron–Clegg coalition. Having lost his seat in the 2015 general election, Lloyd went on to regain it at the 2017 general election. In 2010, Lloyd created an `MP`s Commission`, composed of local business and community leaders in his Eastbourne constituency. Its initiatives included bringing back the Eastbourne `Sunshine` Carnival and organising a procurement conference to encourage further economic cooperation between the private sector and major public sector bodies in the town.
In 2011, Lloyd developed a successful local apprenticeship initiative, aiming to recruit 100 apprenticeships in 100 days in Eastbourne. The initiative ultimately created 181 apprenticeships and received praise from David Cameron. In 2014, Lloyd was awarded the Grassroot Diplomat Initiative Honouree for this work. Stephen was recently appointed as the shadow secretary of state for the Department of Works and Pensions. https://www.facebook.com/StephenLloydEBN/
