I'm Roy

I'M AN EXECUTION Strategist.

Every Thursday, I send a free email designed to help you become a more creative, strategic, and execution-driven thinker.

*What the heck is an

kinda like a HITMAN for business problems.

Unlike the folks in the big consulting firms, I know what it’s like working on the front lines of executing a strategic goal. Throughout my career, I've worked on the inside, solving organizational problems and actually delivering results. Over the years, I've seen multiple scenarios for why strategic programs fail to deliver. While there are many excuses, in my experience, the root causes mostly come down to five common pitfalls:

  1. Internal Politics
  2. Lack Of Ownership
  3. Failure To Admit Mistakes Sooner
  4. Unwillingness To Delegate Workload
  5. Inability To Focus On The Bigger Picture

Keen observational skills, years of experience managing technical and strategic programs, and an uncanny ability to ask the right questions allow me to spot these issues from a mile away. And once my scope is focused on the real problem, I can zero in on a solution and help you eliminate it without prejudice.



I help founders & leaders get their businesses fixed.
By Designing solutions to combat sticky issues.
