His Excellency, Dr. Rollan Roberts was raised a son of a pastor in a West Virginia “holler.” That boy with the spiritual upbringing moved into the real estate profession and ended up, as he says, “making more money than anyone I knew.” He added that experience to his spiritual upbringing and moved it into a corporate space, climbing into the CEO seat at the Hoverboard Company, makers of the best-selling consumer product of 2015. He took all of that and the previous experience, piled up some more corporate dealings, and moved it all to impact spaces. Through program development and consulting on AI, Cybersecurity, and Entrepreneurship around the world, Roberts was building peace, developing systems, advising governments, and creating impact. He produced an annual African Diplomatic Entrepreneur Summit in partnership with multiple national governments and United Nations SDGs, He was bestowed the diplomatic designation of “His Excellency” when awarded Peace Ambassador to World Governments by the International College of Peace Studies.
