It was a pleasure having Court Stroud present at our 2nd annual Comcast NBCU all-day Multicultural Media Day. As a presenting speaker, Court was engaging, vibrant and passionately spoke about the idea of the convergence of tech and culture. Court was the perfect person to educate our group!
We recently launched a diversity and inclusion program in the Americas division of BBC Studios and invited Court to be a part of our distinguished lineup for our first ever symposium. On very short notice, Court condensed a semester-long syllabus into an impactful presentation on the history of D & I that had our employees talking about the session for weeks after. He was well prepared, extremely knowledgeable and highly enthusiastic about the subject matter and helped to make the day a big success.
Court Stroud has come several times now to come and give talks to my student group in Television Writing at New York University — and each one has been one of the highlights of the semester for all of us. His talk yesterday on Culture Vs. Tech was so outstanding I had no choice but share my — and the class’s — incredible enthusiasm. It was incredibly informative, superbly organized, and as wonderfully thought-provoking and insightful as it was entertaining. And he tailored it beautifully for the class.
Over the past 4 years we have had Court as the master of ceremonies for our annual summit. Court brings a commanding presence to ensure our event not only stays on time and on point but also has an even flow from session to session.
Court’s energy and knowledge of our marketplace has helped bring our annual summit to a new heights. He is always prepared and ready to ask great questions. I can’t imagine doing our next event without him!
I have had the pleasure of working with Court Stroud, Managing Director of the Cledor Group, on numerous projects over the past 12 years in the areas of media, multiculturalism and events. His approach to business is easy-going, confident and detailed. As a result, doing business with Court is pleasant and very assuring. His product knowledge and pleasant personality, make him an ideal moderator or interviewer for the conferences which my company produces in the TV and video industry.
I had the privilege and the pleasure of working with Court over the course of several months as Strategic Consultant for Vme Media, Inc. Court’s in-depth knowledge of the Spanish-language and general market media marketplaces, combined with his extremely well-rounded business skills, were invaluable during the process of building financial models, revenue projections and multi-platform marketing plans for Vme. I look forward to the next opportunity to work with him.
