Whether as a conference keynote or as a master of ceremonies, it’s his methods, your messages. Tim will move any audience as he collaborates on potent and absorbing moments that underscore and reflect the realities of this over-stimulated and distracted emailing, Facebooking, Tweeting world in which we now find ourselves living and working.

Hailing from a small town outside Chicago (and now making his home in the Windy City with his wife and daughter), Tim has brought to bear all his experiences from his years as an award-winning educator, his training at Second City and decades in stand-up comedy, and has synthesized his calling as a Humorous Motivational Speaker and Corporate Entertainer.

After a decade as a professor of communications and speech, Tim took his then-budding comedy writing skills to the clubs. During his years as an ultra-clean comedian, Tim swiftly progressed to working with many well-known comics-such as Jerry Seinfeld, Steven Wright and Larry Miller, to namedrop just a few-and you may have caught some of Tim’s humor on YouTube or XM/Sirius Satellite Radio. As a playwright and director, Clue’s stage comedy “Leaving Iowa,” nominated Best New Play in the Country during its premiere at actor Jeff Daniels’ Purple Rose Theatre Company, is now published and performed in theaters all over the U.S. and Canada.

Now, as a Humorous Motivational Speaker and Team Builder, Tim has spoken before such notables as former President George H.W. Bush and economist Paul Krugman. Bringing “social” back into the meeting space and inspiring and connecting his audiences through laughter, Tim Clue is dedicated to reinventing conferences one funny experience at a time.
