Lloyd A. Luna is a Filipino motivational speaker based in Manila, Philippines. In the last seven years, he has spoken to more than half a million people not only in the Philippines but also in most part of Asia and the Middle East including Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, Brunei, South Korea, and United Arab Emirates.His motivational story has been the subject profile of major dailies, national and local television and radio, and Internet in the Philippines.
Lloyd started as a bread seller in a suburb town of Gumaca in Quezon Province, about 200 kilometers away from the city capital of the Philippines. He would help his father distribute breads to small stores in at least five villages.
Growing up, Lloyd didn’t have so much. He would attend public school from grade school up to college where he would take Bachelor of Science in Electronics and Communications Engineering in Polytechnic University of the Philippines, the country’s premier government-subsidized university.
Because he thought money is the most important thing in life, probably because his family lacks it, he would give up his dream of becoming a journalist and took engineering to guarantee some high paying job after graduation.
Haunted by his passion for writing, he would join the college paper and take a leadership role for two years as the Editor-in-Chief. It is when he started developing his writing skills.
In 2003, he landed a job as correspondent of The Manila Times, the Philippines oldest English newspaper. While in engineering, he would chase news and write for the news organization. Committed to improve his skills and influence, he founded Network of Campus Journalists of the Philippines.
Two years later, The Manila Times got him as a columnist on The Sunday Times, where he would spend the next two years giving career advice to students as well as professionals.Early in his life in college, he also got a chance to work as Technical Assistant to the President of the Republic of the Philippines. He became part of the team that cascaded the Strong Republic vision of former President Gloria Macaoagal-Arroyo.
After his two-year stint in the government, he was hired as corporate communications manager of The Next Step Events and would later take the role as Chairman of Career Avenue, a premier event for job seekers.
One year later, he would leave the corporate world.
Yet another chapter started.
One afternoon while in Seattle’s Best in SM Manila, sipping some water for lack of money to buy a cup of coffee, he turned to the people coming in and out of the mall. He tried to figured out the question that mall-goers would ask the most. Because the mall is strategically located in the University belt, many students would come and go.
He started writing down some questions and then he got something that would change his life.
In the next fifteen days, he would come up with a 180-page manuscript entitled “Is There A Job Waiting for You?” It talked about nine strategies to make jobs look for the person.
He would enthusiastically offer his work to publishing companies in Metro Manila only to be consistently denied or rejected. He resorted to borrowing some cash to pay for the printing but none of his friends and family would lend him.
Out of desperation, he developed a new skill that would give him the money he would need to print his books. In two weeks, he self-studied website design, a skill that paid P50,000 to P100,000 at the time.
Somehow, heaven knew how important to Lloyd this project is. One day, he would get to know a friend from New Jersey named Arch. Zonny Lerum, who would eventually commission him to work out a website for him.
He got the money, registered a publishing company and printed his very first book.
The difficult part was far from over. He would deliver his own books to every National Bookstore by foot under the glaring heat of the sun. But his hard work would pay off.
When the media organization found out about his book, he got severalinvitation to talk about. This further gave him break to travel and speak in career seminars and job expo.
In 2006, he got in as consultant for Go Negosyo where he would meet outstanding Filipino entrepreneurs. This would pave way to his career as a corporate speaker and trainer.
In 2008, he would continue traveling abroad for seminars, events that cemented his authority as one of the Philippines’ world class motivational speakers.
In 2010, his dream to be on cable and on air became a reality. He started a talk show, Creative Business with Lloyd Luna on Global News Network.In 2011, he was awarded SM Supermarket Brand Ambassador, an award from the Philippines largest retail company. He would also receive several awards for his works as an author and a motivational speaker.
In 2012, he was awarded as Most Outstanding Motivational Speaker and Author and Most Outstanding Television Host by Top Brand Awards, a recognition that validates his effective teaching and television hosting career.
Also in this year, he founded Peaches and Cream String Quartet, an advocacy quartet which also caters to all types of events.
After seven years, LLOYDLUNA Communications now manages four more brands and affiliate organizations: Monday, Peaches and Cream String Quartet, Campus Paper, and Payday.
His story of starting from the gutter to a now a celebrated motivational speaker, author, and television host has been inspiring people to dream and dare make the dream real.
