Roy Sheppard is a specialist conference moderator, relationships speaker and the author of six books. He has vast experience chairing complex, highly confidential and unscripted conference discussions and has moderated large-scale international conferences in almost every business sector.

In 2011, Roy was called in to moderate the World Summit on bidding for future Olympic Games by the International Olympic Committee (IOC). Previously, he had also moderated the global Olympics conferences in Lausanne, Rio de Janeiro and Beijing. He has moderated six conferences for the world’s largest trade association (ICSC – the International Council of Shopping Centers), including Las Vegas when 53,000 delegates attended.

His early career began in television and radio, where he presented music and interview-based programmes. Roy Sheppard was also involved in production and script writing, but his main area of expertise was in live television. From 1985-91, he was an anchorman of the early evening news for the BBC in London.

He has been a visiting lecturer at Henley School of Management, and at Cranfield University’s full-time MBA course.

A trained therapist, as a relationships speaker, Roy Sheppard is knowledgeable, funny, inspirational and thought-provoking.

His books include “How to Be The One” and “Meet Greet and Prosper”, “Rapid Result Referrals” and “Your Personal Survival Guide to the 21st Century”.

Roy’s talks include:

Meet Greet & Prosper. How to turn strangers into new friends by making the most of networking opportunities at your event. Ideally, this keynote works best near the start.

Reputation Management. How to develop and enhance your personal and professional reputation.

How to be Upbeat in a Downbeat World. Have you ever been taught how to be happy? Indeed, is that possible? Roy says “yes” and shares practical ideas on how to be genuinely upbeat about life and work.
