Award-winning PR specialist, entrepreneur and personal branding coach, Janine Lloyd, is dedicated to using her thirty years of experience in the Public Relations and Marketing industries to create brands that allow her clients and their businesses to thrive.
Janine has devoted her professional life to uplifting all those around her. It is a mission that culminated in her founding the Lloyd Brand Agency in 2021 to complement her successful marketing and PR agency, PR Expert.
The Lloyd Brand Agency specialises in personal branding and influence creation to help individuals unlock their brand genius, equip them with a competitive advantage, and accelerate their success.
Janine’s vision is to help individuals identify their unique value, how that value can be monetized, and design a brand blueprint to launch or grow their service in the market – locally or globally.
Janine’s business endeavours have always been guided by her belief that a truly successful business prioritises the professional and personal flourishing of the people who run it. As an avid believer in self-development, she gained multiple qualifications in life, team, and executive coaching through Results Coaching Systems in New York.
Over the last 15 years as a certified coach and armed with a train-the-trainer qualification, she coached employees and leaders alike in their personal and professional lives and became a highly sought-after workshop presenter.
Over her illustrious career, Janine has created innovative branding, PR and marketing strategies that have produced extraordinary outcomes across numerous industries. As a multi-award-winning master communicator, skilled digital marketer, Public Relations guru, brand expert, and Reputation Management specialist, she prides herself on being an inspiring leader with a talent for motivating people.
Feeling drawn to the communications industry, Janine went on to work in the public affairs department of Olivetti Africa. She later joined Communicate Recruitment as a Consultant where she received numerous awards and established a training centre for the company.
However, the entrepreneur in her wasn’t satisfied and she went on to build, lead and later sell one of South Africa’s premier agencies Livewired Public Relations.
Janine also served as a mentor for teenage girls at a home for abandoned children giving 5 years of her time and experience to uplift these young women through education, practical projects, and life skills. She has been a regular writer and contributor on many projects including writing 10 ways to get your business in the media, being the editor of The Origin of Life and Unleash the Personality of God Within by Rev C.R Mostert, and a guest columnist in the Witness Newspaper.
While the pandemic forced many to re-evaluate their businesses Janine recognises the opportunity it brings to reflect on who we are, the kind of life we want to live, and how we need to be the master of our own destiny.
Janine dreams of sharing her knowledge on life and business on a global scale and setting up a program to give those who can’t afford to pay for a life coach and business mentor access to these teachings and practical skills. In this phase of her life, she wants to create something that has a bigger impact than simply making her own life better. Although it is easy to wish that she knew what she knows now in her twenties, Janine has learnt that we are all on our unique journey and that regret has no use.
Her gift of communication, giving attitude and love of education has made Janine a popular conference and workshop speaker. An inspiring leader, her confidence and strategic mind is only matched by the energy of her passion, making her not only a talented entrepreneur but an influential motivator.
When she is not bettering the world through Philanthropy, Janine enjoys curling up with a wonderful book, hiking in the great outdoors and unleashing her inner artist by painting. She also enjoys scuba diving and writing poetry.
