Roy Sheppard is a specialist conference and international congress MC, facilitator and workshop speaker/trainer, in particular, corporate and association medical and technology events. He facilitates high-stakes advisory boards and ‘C’ level strategy meetings. Roy is particularly event-tech savvy and highly-experienced at delivering online, hybrid and multi-hub meetings.
As a speaker, he is the acknowledged European expert on building profitable business relationships through networking and presentation skills coaching. He has spoken at conferences all over the world.
Roy works on high-profile conferences for some of the world’s largest and most respected organisations. He has been asked back time and again to moderate ‘private’ conferences for the Olympic movement held in Lausanne, Beijing and Rio de Janeiro. He has moderated conferences for the world’s largest trade association – the ICSC (International Council of Shopping Centers) in Rome, Dubai, Cape Town, Istanbul, New York and their flagship event RECON in Las Vegas (attended by 53,000 delegates).
The combined knowledge and experience of every audience is FAR greater than anyone on a conference stage. What differentiates Roy is his uncanny ability to tap into that wisdom by being the ‘conscience’ of each audience.
Working closely with senior executives, producers and meeting planners he helps clarify messaging and outcomes and then, with the production team, helps design engaging and interactive sessions. Through insightful, non-confrontational questions, Roy draws people out, stimulating meaningful and constructive discussions. He brings meetings alive with his energy and focus – and does so with his entertaining and informal style. Clients say he has the skill to make even the largest events feel ‘intimate’. And has been described as ‘the safest pair of hands’ and ‘the cheapest insurance I have.’
For many years, Roy Sheppard was a radio and television broadcaster, mainly with the BBC but also on LBC Radio in London and presented the Sony Award-winning “In the News” on BBC Radio 4.
He is the author of eight business and personal relationship books and a former visiting lecturer at Cranfield, Henley and Bath Universities.
