In a Philippine Airlines Flight 219 from Auckland, New Zealand to Manila just after the closing of Global Speakers Summit 2018, Lloyd realized he needs an original material as a speaker. Thinking of leadership as a topic, he thought about finding out why there was no single leader identified in the creation of the Ifugao Rice Terraces. What kind of leadership did the Filipino ancestors used?
First public presentation of Stepback
In front of more than 70 corporate leaders, Lloyd presented Stepback Leadership. The first audience includes leaders from Taal Vista Hotel, SM Hotels and Conventions, Zalora, CITEM, Park Inn Hotels, Rai Rai Ken, SM Development, United Neon, and members of the Philippine Association of Professional Speakers among others.
Shortly after Lloyd's 36th birthday, he discovered Stepback.
After spending the night in Baguio City, Lloyd and Nic drove seven hours to Lagawe, Ifugao for the first interview. They arrived 8pm in Banaue, where Alex received them.
During the 2nd Philippine Association of Professional Speakers Convention, Lloyd gave a 30-minute keynote on Stepback Leadership before a hundred delegates from 11 countries.
