Lloyd’s Register stained glass window designed by Gerald Moira
Lloyd’s was founded 250 years ago. It provided information to merchants and underwriters about the state of the vessels they chartered or insured. They are still active in the maritime industry, certifying and certifying equipment and ships to ensure safety. They also work in other industries. Clutton is currently involved with a PS100m oil and gas initiative in the Caspian. The gas is subject to high pressure, so Lloyd’s must issue a certificate that it’s safe. He stated that the environment is one of unlimited liability, which he believes is harmful to charity.

Clutton started his career as a mechanical engineer, but he discovered his talents with numbers which he now uses for his job. Clutton has been with Lloyd’s Register since 1994 and is now able to shape the company’s projects.
Clutton, who recently returned from a leadership seminar in the Netherlands, explained that Lloyd’s core industry are those that will shape global project in a broad way. He explained that the world’s population grows at 6,000,000 per day. One seminar participant presented facts about managing the population explosion. We will need 72 planets to feed everyone if we continue to use the same farming techniques as we did a few years ago. He stated that the future will be centered on energy and consumption.
He stated that project management is a key component in ensuring that projects are managed to their maximum potential. “There will always have losers and winners. It is important to ensure that we’re on the winning side.”
