Meet presenter and interviewer Roy Sheppard
May 2022 – 3,000 members of the European Society of Endocrinology attended their first annual congress since COVID restrictions were lifted. Roy was the MC and facilitator on-stage but also running alongside the congress were 2 x daily LIVE 30 minute online TV shows first introduced at their previous online event. It proved so popular with remote delegates as well as in-person attendees. Each afternoon show we previewed highlights for the next day. The morning show reflected on the highlights from the previous day. The content was medical and scientific (not for members of the public) so here are Roy’s TV links and interview questions only.
In 2017 when our FRESH conference went online as a multi-hub conference, Roy gave a great performance as our chief moderator. He was leading, from Brussels, 4 other moderators in 4 other cities in Poland, Holland, Portugal and the UK. As an experienced TV host, Roy understands how to involve online audiences and how to work with nervous online speakers or even online panels… His expertise and talent, makes an online event look so much more professional. Roy is an energetic, eloquent and brilliant MC and moderator who just gets people engaged and energised in a way you would not expect from an online event.
Roy is known for providing a ‘light-touch, with deep understanding’.
