If you want to make your events and conferences more engaging and interactive, you’ll be interested to hear from my guest today Roy Sheppard. A delegate once wrote on their feedback form “Roy Sheppard breaks more ice than the Russian fishing fleet!” 

Roy has a background as a BBC news presenter and reporter – but for the past 25 years he has worked as a specialist conference facilitator and MC.  

Listen out for Oscar the rescue dog making his podcast debut.


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).

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.

Recorded: 4th July 2019
