Roy is the Director of Marketing, Clark Hill Law
“I’m also more forthcoming than I’ve ever been with colleagues and leaders
about what I need for balance, and the response has been positive.“
Roy, another much-loved and respected Midwest (Michigan) member, was recently featured in another Midwest member’s article: Kate Harry Shipham of KHS People (the whole article can be viewed here).
Roy was asked to contribute to Kate’s article, which featured the month of May as “Mental Health Awareness Month” and asked several respected marketers for their thoughts. As noted by Kate, Roy is a shining beacon for all of us. His ability to share and show vulnerability with his work family is inspirational:
I’m trying to ease back into balance and reclaim my time.
Roy has seniority, tenure and credibility which empowers him to have this perspective. But having said that, every marketer I know works hard and does the right thing, and there’s no reason why everyone can’t take this balanced view. Life really is too short to be focusing on things, firms or people who can’t empathize and don’t value input and know that everyone needs balance and has a tipping point.
Thank you Roy. Your wise and much-needed words are so important to our members!
