“Nassau offers practical advice from a career in the hospitality industry…His humorous, brutally honest presentation makes you realize that we’re all prone to our moments of PAFU and gives practical advice to handle this behavior with the grace and honesty that builds better relationships and a more functional work (and personal) environment.”

– Sherri Fulmer Moorer for Readers’ Favorite

“PAFU is a great book for people leaders that need some guidance on what behavior to call out and how to do it effectively. Roy advocates if we nip PAFU in the bud it will help eradicate the perpetrator.”

– Dr. Jordan Alexander

“Nassau uses an acerbically blunt and spectacularly witty narrative to provide insight on individuals in our sphere who are more likely than not to be complete, absolute morons—including ourselves. ”

– Asher Syed

Roy is available for bookings as a keynote speaker, leading conference breakout sessions and workshops, Q&A style live events and facilitating educational talks in schools.
