"ReviveHealth sponsored Johnny as keynote speaker at SHSMD, one of our big trade shows, and he blew away all expectations. The audience loved him, the content and vibe and spirit really connected, and then Johnny was kind enough to visit our booth for 45 minutes to sign autographs and pose for photos with SHSMD attendees. The line went all the way through the entire exhibit floor out to the convention center common area— must have been 300 to 400 people, maybe more. I would recommend Johnny as a keynote speaker without any hesitation or qualification. He is a great guy, a great speaker, and will reflect well on any brand that engages with him.
"Johnny Earle’s record speaks for itself, but when he’s actually in your presence, telling his story and sharing his ideas…you truly get to appreciate his heart, mind & talents. He recently spoke to the Emerging Leaders at Harvard Law School on the Power of Networking, and to say he left the audience energized is a major understatement. We chose to invite Johnny over a traditional higher ed professional to prove that the language of networking is universal. He proved that case in under one hour."
"Hiring Johnny Cupcakes to come to our office was one of the greatest decisions we’ve made. Johnny’s ideas grew our patient volume, reviews, recognition in the market, staff morale and their views on customer service. He even led us to win a gold level Addy Award.
"We had over 650 attendees at the event. In post event surveys Johnny scored highest of all 13 main speakers."
"Johnny Earle’s humorous and self-deprecating tale of how resilience and resourcefulness has continually fueled the success of Johnny Cupcakes is both entertaining and compelling. It challenges all of us to think about how we can use basic ingenuity to strengthen our business results and always be prepared to make lemonade when we are dealt lemons. Johnny is a truly delightful speaker who wholly engages his audience while delivering some fundamental and inspiring business and life lessons."
"Mr. Johnny Cupcakes recently keynoted at the Deltek Insight Conference and was a fan favorite. Johnny’s unique blend of entrepreneurial spirit and art of the human connection are rare in today’s world, but he nailed it! Although Johnny has excelled specifically within entrepreneurship and retail, his story is broadly applicable and was incredibly inspiring and entertaining. Everyone at our user conference left motivated to breathe new life into their organization, firm, business, etc. and ‘do more of what makes you happy’. I would highly recommend Johnny for your next big event or keynote opportunity!"
"It is evident that Johnny truly cares …which is why his business practice of going the extra step and creating small but meaningful consumer experiences has translated into the success of Johnny Cupcakes. We had the opportunity to hear Johnny’s story earlier this year. Johnny is an energetic and excellent speaker that is highly engaging. Our entire team from corporate to dealer left the room benefiting from easy-to-implement best practices."
"Johnny delivered his keynote with personality, authenticity and inspiring energy. He engaged the audience with his story and made it relevant to the themes and ambitions of our conference. Most importantly, he inspired us to think differently… and even more, had a lasting effect, as since the conference colleagues have taken a ‘Johnny Cupcakes approach’ to some of our business challenges. Thanks, Johnny!"
"Johnny has ‘creativity-as-a-business strategy’ nailed …and he’s able to turn it into a talk which is so coherent and thoughtful that even a bean counter would understand why creativity is the most powerful, yet untapped force in business today."
"Johnny recently spoke at a meeting of Deloitte leaders. It was a tough and diverse audience that included those at the beginning of their careers and those near the end, some forward thinkers and some who are more traditional. Despite the diversity, Johnny captured the attention of everyone in the room and successfully…challenged all of us to think a little differently about how we serve our clients as well as how we choose to live our lives. His enthusiasm is nothing but contagious, and his story and success is nothing but compelling."
"Johnny Earle is a wonderful speaker who engaged us at The Honest Co. and inspired so many of our people. He came prepared, brought a ton of energy, and… shared some great words of wisdom about creativity, taking risks, and conquering adversity. He is also just a super cool guy. I would highly recommend having Johnny speak at your event or your company."
"As a journalist I have sat through thousands of presentations and few are as entertaining, thought-provoking and enchanting as Johnny’s. He should give a master class on keynote speaking. I have never seen audiences as devoted to every word."
"Run - don't walk - to hire Johnny to speak at your event! The recipe is simple: mix equal parts incredible story and unbridled energy; add dashes of humor, creativity and passion; sprinkle with joyful nuttiness...and what you and your attendees are left with is an hour they will never forget. Pump up your own team; wow an external audience - there are so many settings where this man will ABSOLUTELY CRUSH IT."

After Johnny 'wowed' the group with his inspiring words, lines wrapped around the hall to get one of the limited edition custom shirts he made for our event. We sold out in under 90 minutes and had to place an additional order. In true Johnny fashion he stayed to greet everyone in line even those that didn’t get a shirt. Our people are still talking about the event a year later and I often see the custom t-shirts around the country!
