Why have thousands of customers from around the world chosen to get the Johnny Cupcakes' logos tattooed on themselves? And how does Johnny get hundreds of people to camp outside his fake bakeries? Over the past decade Johnny Cupcakes, founded by speaker Johnny Earle, has grown from a "joke" to a multi-million dollar, highly exclusive t-shirt brand driven by a community of world-wide collectors. Johnny shares his story of how he took his t-shirt brand from the trunk of his rusty car at age 19 to some of the world’s most sought after retail locations all with a learning disability.
In this session, Johnny will piece together how his success reinforces the power of details, customer experience and brand loyalty. Through his inspiring, and certainly unpredictable journey, Johnny exudes the fundamental connection between the person and the brand. Johnny's presentation provides comprehensive blueprints for getting any small business, passion or idea off the ground, while also expanding the way existing creators think.
He’s even bringing the Johnny Cupcakes pop up shop experience to Beaumont. This is your chance to get exclusive Johnny Cupcakes merchandise, including a LIMITED EDITION shirt available ONLY at this event. Join the craze and start your t-shirt collection!
Johnny has been named Americas #1 Young Entrepreneur by BusinessWeek, one of the top innovative people in Massachusetts by The Boston Globe, he has been recognized 4 years in a row for making it into the INC 500/5000 fastest growing independent companies in America, and has been featured on MTV, NPR, Forbes and The Wall Street Journal.
Jenn Lim is the CEO and CHO (Chief Happiness Officer) of Delivering Happiness, a company she co founded with Tony Hsieh (CEO of Zappos.com), to inspire science-based happiness, passion and purpose at work, home and in everyday life.
Jenn has been a consultant with Zappos from its start-up days in 2003 to the $2B business it is today. She created the Zappos Culture Book, an embodiment of how companies can use happiness as a business model to increase productivity and profitability.
Jenn’s experience with Zappos, combined with her development of scientific frameworks for workplace happiness, created the evidence that happier employees = happier customers = successful companies (and meaningful lives).
Jenn has traveled to over 30 countries to speak on this equation and most importantly, share the practical ways of HOW this equation works. You’ll learn that these principles apply in every organization and that building a sustainable culture yields positive ROI and greater productivity.
