After getting his Master’s Degree in 2000 Judson Laipply has been entertaining and educating audiences all over the globe. With energy and engagement, comedy and content, wit and wisdom Judson provides keynotes and trainings that are as enjoyable as they are impactful. 

Helping people and organizations deal with and create change while reminding them about the importance of growth and evolving Judson gives tangible actions items and thought provoking insights into sustained success and joy. 

On top of all that, he is the world’s first YouTube Celebrity having had the first global viral video with his finale “The Evolution of Dance”. His video was the first to reach 100 million views and he held the Guinness World Record for “Most Liked Video” until Justin Bieber hit puberty. 

He’s been seen on the Today Show, Ellen, Inside Edition, America’s Got Talent, Tosh.O, Oprah and more.  


Being a professional speaker is exactly what Judson wanted to do since 11th grade, when he competed in the Rotary 4-Way Test Speech Contest and placed first in his school. From then on it was his mission to become a professional speaker and he has been fortunate enough to be one for almost 20 years.

After four years of undergrad at Bluffton University in Ohio (where he continued to find ways to present – can you say group project?!) and two years of graduate school at Bowling Green State University he decided it was the perfect time to pursue his passion. Ever since, he’s been traveling, speaking, presenting, training, and dancing across the globe.

Judson even earned the CSP (Certified Speaking Professional) from the National Speakers Association. A designation held by less then %10 of the global speaker population.

His aim is always the same. Entertain and educate. Make people laugh and make people think. Time is our most precious resource and if someone is going to give him theirs – he wants to make sure he’s giving them something of value in return.  Speaking for a living is an honor for Judson and he does his best to never forget that. He is the winner of many awards including Speaker of the Year by campusawards.com and his favorite award, “Coolest Uncle”, by his 7 year old nephew.
