Culture Consultant on a Mission to Shatter the Stereotype
Hi, I’m John and I’m proof that CPA’s can be funny. Really funny. I know that when it comes to corporate events, getting serious results doesn’t have to be so serious. I also know that a corporate speaker should partner with you to make sure the entire event is a success, which means making the event about your organization. Not about me. And I know that’s exactly what I do.
John Garrett is a nationally recognized speaker and emcee who draws on his condition as a recovering Big Four CPA to deliver messages that hit home with corporate audiences. This professional member of the National Speakers Association is on a mission to shatter the definition of “stereotypical professional” and in the meantime, show organizations how to create a stronger culture that increases engagement and reduces turnover.
John has performed for leading companies ranging from “Big Four” accounting firms to banks and technology companies to professional associations seeking an outside-of-the-box way to engage their audiences.
“Getting serious results
doesn’t have to be so serious.”

John partners with you to make events better. As a former CPA, he was in the audience for more conferences and meetings than he’d like to admit so John knows exactly how to help ensure your event is fun, productive, and memorable.
