His work ethic is beyond reproach and he leads by example, providing support and mentorship to his peers. On appointment William Roy quickly identified challenges with a range of tactical and operational issues demonstrating complete commitment to call and coordinate emergency Working Groups, supporting all pillars to ensure the progress of a myriad of projects. Many freedom of movement problems and potential issues on Mission level as well as in the field have been deescalated due to his subtle engagement.

A deft communicator, both verbally and through his written work, William's gift is mentoring, planning and leadership, identifying and rectifying problems and articulating best practice. This has been most obvious while planning and facilitating the COVID CONPLAN for the Mission and a large number of TTXs on Mission HQ level and within the Field Offices. He has been instrumental in driving the COVID CONPLAN implementation in the Mission coordinated with all relevant actors. He has heavily assisted with a culture change within the Mission, challenging individuals to test and rehearse their contingency plans for improved reaction to crisis management. William Roy has also been instrumental in managing the Mission Planning Group working with all sections and components across the Mission.

William has made an outstanding start to his tour as a CT Liaison Officer. He has met each of the unique challenges of his particular project - the creation of an enduring, competent and credible CT unit within the host nation Police Service. He has even at this early stage set the standard for operational Liaison Officers, many of whom are senior to him.

The epitome of quiet but flawless efficiency, everything William does is underpinned by superb attention to detail, effective and detailed planning and exceptional administration.

Ever-mindful of the rightful priority of task needs, William consistently ensures that the operational output is maintained during exacting circumstances. He has established and maintained UK instructors and host nation students in an austere and remote training location and provided essential input into nationwide reconnaissance and capability assessments that will inform much of the UK's future CT engagement within the country.

Particularly impressive, William’s interpersonal skills have been applied to great effect to include a firm yet delicate style with often frustrating host nation interlocutors and key personalities This he achieved through robust mentorship and management of a UK instructor team, assembled for each discrete training module, and the necessary in-country interaction with the FCDO and other UK Government Depts. A particularly notable performance that bodes very well indeed for his future employability and potential. This has been a most assured, credible and impressive performance from an absolutely top-drawer Liaison Officer.

I am writing to highly recommend the excellent services provided by William in the area of security training, risk assessments and emergency planning. I have had the pleasure of working alongside him both as a UK Government Civil Servant and as a United Nations staff member specialising in security contingency planning, emergency response and situational awareness provision.

William's security training programs are comprehensive and tailored to ensure the specific needs of clients and large peacekeeping organisations are met. I have witnessed first hand the training that he has delivered in austere and hostile environments, on behalf of host nation governments, to ensure that threats and risks (including threats to life from conflict, terrorism, and humanitarian crisis) are met.

He has vast experience of delivering training programs that are modularised to cover topics such as threat identification, crisis management, physical security, hostile environment awareness, and humanitarian crises.

In addition to training he excels in conducting risk assessments that lead to a range of prepared response measures being in place. His experience, knowledge and skills will offer an ability to conduct in depth evaluations of an organisation's vulnerabilities to identify potential risks. His expertise will assist organisations to enhance their safety, minimise threats and protect their assets, personnel and property effectively. I can vouch for his professionalism, attention to detail, and dedication. William's commitment to providing effective security training is commendable.
