Comedian and clown, Em tackles everything from breaking the mould with effective communication to employee engagement and leadership.


Em Stroud is a speaker, clown, and performer, who speaks on a range on subjects including how laughter and fun can impact on leadership, teams, and culture. She also talks about how tools and ideas from the world of improvisation and clowning can impact business success and team performance as well as leadership. Em is a best bestselling author, and successful entrepreneur who has been described as “innovative, witty, engaging and authentic” by Diva Magazines Sam Grierson.

Em explores the relationship between culture within organisations and the human element, and how we can collaborate more successfully and shift our own personal choices when it comes to engagement, communication, impact, and storytelling. She has worked with a compelling list of teams and leadership groups in companies including Bloomburg, Bayer, Barclaycard, Airbus, and Fisher German.

She works with high level businesses helping their leaders and teams to put the fun back into work so they can be more confident, creative, collaborative, and ultimately more successful. Having worked globally with sales teams, whole company events, Em understands that the business world is constantly evolving, and her tools, ideas and expertise are needed more than ever to make better business choices and lead to a more resilient, happier and engaged workforce.

Em is the host of the Top Thirty podcast Clowning Around and has co-launched the podcast Simply Feel Better as part of her new global movement Laugh Think Play.

As well as keynotes, workshops, and plenary sessions Em also has a background in improvisation and comedy so can offer after dinner speaking written entirely for a specific audience. This will often end with a song to help engage and enlighten any event.
