Roger's nomination for the President's Award of the British Council for Offices in 2008 puts it very well: This man has grit and determination talent and great foresight, he is energetic and resilient, intelligent and with the common touch, innovative and creative and brave but not foolhardy. He is a developer and creator of place. He is an articulate and punchy communicator. He has controlled passion . If he was an Olympiad he would be a marathon runner. He is a great example to us all, and his drive in developing Kings Cross Central is extremely impressive.
