He has an uncanny talent for seeing beyond current circumstances to what may be possible, and has the communication and motivational skills to get people engaged in that journey, making it their own. When once asked what his secret to success was, Roy responded “Life is fiction, we are each the author of our own destiny. Simply write your life forward to the outcome you desire.”
