Description

The “starting at the bottom” breakfast

Think of Brighton and you think of the pier, the pavilion…and if you’re thinking businesses, the thriving digital media scene.

Our September speaker Jenny Lloyd has been involved with all of them.

It’s fair to say that some of her roles have demanded a rather higher set of skills than others. After graduating from Art College in 1990 and deciding for no discernible reason that Brighton was where she wanted to be, she landed a job cleaning toilets on the pier.

It was a time when, if you listened hard, you could hear the first rumblings of the digital age and Jenny soon landed a job in this infant industry. It was the start of a journey that led to where she is today – Chair of the Brighton Digital Festival and with her own successful company, PurposeLab.

Jenny’s first “proper” job was as an interaction designer – we’ll leave her to explain what that is – and she was subsequently director of NixonMcInnes, an early pioneer of social media marketing.

She also finds time to be a trustee of the Royal Pavilion and Museums Foundation, seeing the Pavilion as a symbol of innovation and radical ideas. She’s a board member of Wired Sussex, and also sits on the University of Brighton Industry Advisory Board for the School of Computing, Engineering & Maths.

Nearly 30 years on, she loves Brighton more than ever, describing it as a city where crazy ideas can be made real. It’s certainly a place where you can rise from the bottom of the heap to the top of your game.
