Lloyd Olivecrona

Lloyd studied NLP Practitioner in 2002 with Richard Bolstad. This lead on to Master Practitioner training in January 2003, and after completing trainer training in 2004, Lloyd became a certified NLP trainer in 2005.

Born in Lower Hutt, Lloyd followed a career path in manufacturing technology after graduating with a B.Sc. (Hons.) in Chemistry in 1980. He discovered he had a natural affinity for training, and performing, from his mid-twenties. Lloyd has been involved in more than 30 stage productions as an actor/singer/dancer. His career highlight was being cast in the North Shore Operatic production of “Chess” which played at the Pumphouse theatre in 1995.

Working in technical management, and operating his own consultancy business has given Lloyd a unique perspective on the nature of the human condition, and he is endlessly curious about what makes people successful in their work roles. In particular Lloyd is fascinated with the impact of the skilful/artful trainer/performer on the subjective experience of the learner/audience.

Lloyd lives in Devonport with Sue, and Cutie the cat.
