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 (who started 16 businesses before he was 16 years old), has grown from a “joke” to a multi-million dollar, highly exclusive t-shirt brand driven by a community of world-wide collectors. Johnny is visiting Melbourne to tell the story of how he took his t-shirt brand from his rusty car at age 19, with learning difficulties and little resources, to some of the world’s most sought after retail locations.
Johnny frequently speaks at businesses and universities worldwide. He has been named Americas #1 Young Entrepreneur by BusinessWeek, one of the top innovative people in Massachusetts by The Boston Globe, he has been recognised four 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, WIRED, and as a case study in several branding and business books. Johnny’s known for helping other people create blueprints for building brand loyalty, creating memorable experiences, and inspiring innovation.
Johnny hits Melbourne on 30 August 2016 for ONE NIGHT ONLY. Tickets are selling like freshly baked cupcakes so best get in here, before it’s all sold out!
