Judson Laipply promises to do two things: make you laugh and make you think. And for the last seven years, his passion for both has entertained and educated audiences all over the world. Judson is an award-winning speaker and performer who utilizes a phenomenon labeled “Inspirational Comedy” to blend the realities of life with side-splitting humor.

After graduating from Bluffton University with a BA and from Bowling Green State University with a Master’s degree, Judson Laipply burst onto the professional speaking scene and has quickly become a breath of fresh air in a sometimes suffocating world. His presentations are down to earth and highly motivational, creative and appealing, humorous and thought provoking, lively and enriching.

Judson’s artistic and refreshing approach to viewing life and accepting the changes it brings, combined with his energetic demeanor and playful stage presence, never fails to surprise and inspire audiences. Drawing from his vast array of experiences that include working on a cruise ship, at a camp in Colorado, as a certified Aerobics instructor, as a part- time auctioneer, teaching college courses, being a published poet, and writing a weekly column, he can relate to audiences of all ages from all over the country.

“I am so blessed to be able to do what I do. I get to combine my two favorite things in the world. I love to entertain and make people laugh. I also love to help people grow and develop. I thrive on getting people to think about things, shift their perception, and hope that I might just be able to give them something to help make their life better. Combining those two on stage is just about as good as it gets!” – Judson Laipply


Presentation Topics

LIfe is Change

Inspirational keynote

Socrates once said, “Perfection is constant change.” Life is change. Day in and day out the thing that remains constant is change. Judson combines laughter inducing stories with thought-provoking ideas to drive home the point that we are in the constant presence of change.

His stories, personal experiences, crowd participation, high energy, and laughter help people recognize how to let go of the things out of their control, and focus their energies on things they can change. Judson’s finale, The Evolution Of Dance will leave your audience with an unforgettable message, one which will remind each participant that “Life is Change,” and that they have the ultimate control over the outcome.

The Paradoxes of Life 


Inspirational keynote

Using life’s contradictions and paradoxes, Judson’s program reminds the audience of life’s delicate balances. At time one may have to do the opposite in order to achieve a desired result, make a change to move forward, fail in order to succeed, forget in order to remember. The more that is learned – the more reality surfaces and we realize how little we really know.

Life just seems to give them everything they want and even when bad things do happen they seem to be able to handle it all in stride. Everyone likes to be around them and people seem to gravitate to them. Are they born with it or is it something you can learn?

The 5 L's For Living 


Workshop and Training

This program can be used in either workshop setting or as a theme for an entire day, weekend or week long camp. Laugh, Listen, Learn, Live, and Love. They are five simple words that have many definitions and many uses. Alone each of them covers an important aspect of life but together they can be a powerful mantra for living.

We will explore the internal and external facet of these words in relations to others and self. Listen to yourself, Laugh with yourself, Learn from yourself, Live for yourself, and Love yourself and the internal explorations of personal power. Once you have a grasp on these areas you can move onto the external areas.

Listen to others, Laugh with others, Learn from others, Live for others, and Love all others. These areas lend themselves to multiple ideas concerning leadership and success.Communication, self-exploration, laughter, service leadership, diversity, understanding, motivation, and self-esteem are just a few of the areas that these five L’s touch upon.
