Throughout his career, Royston has developed the unique skills required to facilitate in a range of settings; from daylong conferences, through to confidential boardroom discussions.

Royston role as the Facilitator is to enable a group of individuals to arrive at decision points by providing non-directive leadership helping the group to consider alternatives and ultimately achieve their immediate objectives. The role is one of assistance and guidance, rather than control, ensuring the discussions are kept on track and deliver tangible outcomes. The key skill is knowing;

  • How to deal with big personalities in order for everyone’s voice to be heard and thoughts shared.
  • How and when to summarise to shape the discussion to a series of ‘mini conclusions’, bank the gains, and maintain momentum towards the BIG outcome goal.

With over 2 decades Royston has honed, polished and developed the unique skills and creditability to deliver facilitated outcomes in a wide variety of scenarios. Whether its facilitating the inaugural meeting of new Government Ministers or the first meeting of a newly merged Board of two industry titans, or facilitating pay negotiations with the union, or dysfunctional partnership with suppliers, or accelerating teams through the storming, norming stages to high performing or interviewing a panel of experts with a vocal audience… …you will have total piece of mind that with Royston you have a credible professional to help you achieve your objectives.

Prior to embarking on his entrepreneurial journey, Royston started his career in the construction industry.

He moved to Balfour Beatty where he was appointed a trouble-shooter on several multi-million pound construction projects, in both the UK and USA. On returning from the USA, Royston’s fascination with the broader challenges of businesses resulted in a career change to sales and business development.

His delivery was energetic, passionate & informative. He believes in his subject and passes that belief on to the audience. Every delegate I spoke to gave positive feedback on Royston. Conference delegate - European Customer Experience World
  • Royston was invited to be one of our speakers at the Human Resource Summit. The feedback from his session was extremely positive. The delegates, all UK HR Directors, commented that the presentation was dynamic, current and provided them with new practical ideas that they could implement within their own organisation. It was also evident that Royston's agenda was not to promote Pti Worldwide services, but share his passion and knowledge for improving individual & team performance. Head of Sales - Summit Event
  • Having seen Royston speak before I was keen to bring his energy and insight into one of our summer business schools...His session was first class and I can confidently say that every delegate went away with clear action points. Royston has the great talent of being able to get his points across to his audience in a fun and engaging way but at the same time really push the 'serious' stuff - for individuals to take real action.
