Roy Sheppard

Specialist conference and international congress MC, facilitator and workshop speaker/trainer, in particular corporate and association medical and technology events.

Professional webinar host & executive producer.

As one of the most highly-experienced conference moderators, Roy facilitates high-stakes advisory boards and ‘C’ level strategy meetings. Roy is particularly event-tech savvy and is one of very few people who are adept at delivering online, hybrid and multi-hub meetings.

We were looking for a moderator/facilitator for the opening and closing ceremonies of
our annual conference but Roy delivered so much more. His professionalism and very British
sense of humour transformed our conventionally stiff events into entertaining, interactive
shows – exactly what was needed to get things off the ground.

By generating a lively atmosphere, he succeeded in connecting people who might not otherwise
have met each other and left a lasting impression with all of us. If you have ever the
chance to work with him – do it!”

Andreas Felser, Executive Director EANM,

“I have known Roy for 25 years. We have worked together on many occasions in TV, radio and on the conference and meetings circuit — and he has always been a joy and, of course, a professional. An example is on one occasion we brought Roy in to facilitate a three-day conference (in Barcelona) for a major international pharma company. A large part of the conference was an extended and detailed discussion about the merits of a complex drug for an audience of 170 senior doctors from all around the world, Roy handled it superbly. He THEN had to give them a presentation on how to give a presentation at 2pm, the notorious graveyard shift, and with an audience where only 5% used English as their first language. The fact that the audience were enthralled and ranked the session so highly is a testament to Roy’s skill. Would I recommend Roy? Absolutely yes. He does what it says on the tin — and he does it very, very well indeed.” Richard Cobourne, Producer and Director at On Screen Productions Ltd  

“I have met, and experienced, Roy on numerous occasions over the years. On one recent occasion, he has moderated our HP Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) NonStop Customer Council, a gathering of C-level executives of our most important HP NonStop EMEA customers, where Roy was the facilitator for this 2-day meeting. This is not a marketing meeting! This meeting serves as an important evaluation of the business relationship HP NonStop has with these customers; positive as well as negative, and always highly sensitive, information gets discussed in this, at times, highly charged meeting. Roy’s role as facilitator for this meeting requires him to be sensitive to the issues being presented, add himself in where the meeting is heading into a “dead-end”, and equally important, he knows when to just be quiet and let things flow!  One of his welcome trademarks is his knack for asking the difficult questions, which, for whatever reason, are not being asked (either of the customer or of HP NonStop). His keen sense of timing, his ability to think on his feet, add humor when appropriate or required, all have made Roy a welcome repeat host for not just our HP NonStop customer council, but other events as well! Roy understands, that the facilitator role is not a “show-case” for him, but a role to make the meeting the best it can be. His personality and professionalism put the organizers at ease, and creates excitement in, and for, the audience, wondering what he will do or say next! I encourage you to experience him yourself in one of your next events. You and your event will be better for it!” Mike Hurst, Director, Global Field Marketing/Business Development at HP
