Roy is the acknowledged European expert on building profitable business relationships through networking and referrals and has spoken at conferences all over the world. He has worked as a visiting lecturer at Cranfield University’s full-time MBA course. And more recently at Henley School of Management.
For many years Roy was a radio and television broadcaster, mainly with the BBC. But also at HTV in Cardiff and LBC Radio in London.
Working both regionally and nationally for the BBC, he presented music and interview-based programmes, including the Sony Award winning “In the News” on BBC Radio 4.
Whilst Roy was also involved in production and script writing, his main area of expertise was in live television and he regularly worked alongside other notable presenters including Jeremy Paxman, Eamonn Holmes, Ann Robinson and the late Jill Dando. From 1985-91, he was an anchorman of the early evening news for the BBC in London.
In 1994 Roy trained as a hypnotherapist, although he decided not to go into practice.
His books include “Roy Sheppard's Face-to-Face Book”, “Rapid Result Referrals” and “Your Personal Survival Guide to the 21st Century.” described by The Independent as 'required reading'(now out of print). In 2008 he co-wrote (with Mary T Cleary, an activist on behalf of male victims of domestic violence) one of the first ever forensically researched, books about dangerous, violent and sociopathic women. "That Bitch: Protect Yourself Against Women with Malicious Intent" explored the unique ways these particularly nasty women abuse innocent men, women and children.
In October 2010 he published "How to be The One" which became the subject of a two page spread in YOU, the UK's top circulation women's magazine (part of The Mail on Sunday) and was a lead story on CNN.com's Lifestyle website. For single men and women it took this unique position;why should anyone stop their search for a life-partner once they've met you? Or will you merely become the 'ex' in the word 'next'?
