Stu Snyder is that speaker

Able to motivate students, inspire seasoned entrepreneurs, and amuse audiences of all kinds. A legendary entertainment industry executive, Stu led his teams at Turner Broadcasting/Time Warner to win 26 Emmy awards. He’s also helmed the WWF (now WWE); was involved in movies including Reservoir Dogs and Terminator 2: Judgement Day; and co-produced live shows such as The Exorcist on the West End, plus Water for Elephants, SUFFS and Hell’s Kitchen on Broadway.

Now an independent consultant, Stu is still making films, producing shows, and growing businesses. He’s done everything from reimagining Beal’s Lobster Pier, a landmark restaurant in Maine that embodies what Stu calls “foodtainment,” to advising Sumitomo Corporation on entertainment ventures, and creating global entertainment franchises such as Adventure Time, Ben 10 & Rick and Morty.

From big business to the big screen, Stu has life and work experience no one else does. As a speaker, he reveals his learnings and strategies for success with wit, humor, and wisdom.

Whether he’s offering a blueprint for success to budding entrepreneurs at Dartmouth’s Tuck School of Business, sharing behind-the-scenes filmmaking anecdotes on entertainment podcasts or telecasts, or trading lobster-cooking tips with Martha Stewart herself, Stu inspires listeners.

His entrepreneurial expertise, entertainment industry experience, and gift for brand – and business-building have given him invaluable insight—and his down-to-earth humor makes him an engaging, inspiring speaker.
