Christopher Lloyd is a historian, educationalist and author. Having graduated from Peterhouse, Cambridge, in 1991 with two scholarships and a double first-class degree in History, he became a graduate trainee journalist on The Sunday Times newspaper and was trained at the City University where he gained a diploma in newspaper journalism. In 1993, Lloyd was appointed The Sunday Times Innovation Editor and won the 1994 Texaco award for Science Journalist of the Year. In 1997 Lloyd co-founded LineOne, a joint venture Internet Service business owned by BT and News International and later became a director of News Internationals’ Internet activities. He qualified in direct marketing with a Cert DM from the Institute of Direct Marketing. In January 2001 Lloyd was recruited to become chief executive of Immersive Education, an education software publishing company based in Oxford.
In 2006 he left Immersive Education to spend time travelling across Europe with his wife and two children, both of whom were home-educated. The time spent on the road travelling around Europe inspired him to come up with the concept for What on Earth Happened: The Complete Story of the Planet (Bloomsbury, 2008), which has sold 500,000 copies.
Christopher Lloyd will present an animated and interactive History of the World at Ormston House, Patrick St at 11:00am, Saturday February 25th. Free event for all ages.
