Jeff and his 10-year Las Vegas Residency will be featured in a full-length special/documentary in the coming months on a major streaming service. We can’t say which one just yet 🙂 

Only 1.5% of keynote speakers working today have been conferred with the Certified Speaking Professional (CSP) designation, awarded by the National Speakers Association (NSA)… Jeff received it in 2023.

 

Jeff is one of the youngest ever inductees into the National Speakers Association’s CPAE Speaker Hall of Fame. The Council of Peers Award for Excellence (CPAE) is a lifetime award for speaking excellence and professionalism. Inductees are evaluated by their peers through a rigorous and demanding process. Each candidate must excel in five categories: message, presentation/delivery, experience, professionalism and collateral material.

There have been approximately 270 CPAEs all time, and there are fewer than 100 living CPAEs today.

Jeff has created the Cisko Sound Scholarship in honor of his longtime Vegas audio engineer and friend Craig Palcisko as a way of honoring Craig’s spirit, humor, and humble nature. Established through the Public Education Foundation, this $1,000/year scholarship (renewable for 4 years) is for a college-bound senior currently majoring in theater tech or sound tech at Las Vegas Academy of the Arts where Jeff serves on the Advisory Board.

Jeff once again proved his ability to innovate and adapt during 2020-2021. By partnering with Show Creators Studios in Las Vegas, Jeff hosted/performed 250+ virtual shows and events, turning the pandemic into his most profitable year… up to that point 🙂

Jeff has extensive TV experience, hosting national programs on ABC, NBC, ESPN, Travel Channel, Cooking Channel, etc. He is a regular guest host of “The Morning Blend” on the ABC affiliate in Las Vegas, KTNV Channel 13.

Jeff remains committed to his alma mater Georgetown University. He is President of the local Georgetown University Alumni Club of Las Vegas, and served on the Board of Governors for the University Alumni Association for 6 years. Many GU alumni affectionately refer to Jeff as “The Georgetown Juggler.” He remains a proud member of his a cappella group The Chimes. Hoya Saxa!

Jeff is a little crazy! He has “joggled” (jogging + juggling) a marathon (all 26.2 miles!) to raise funds for “Athletes for Special Kids.” He has “rapuggled” (rappelling + juggling) down Planet Hollywood Casino to raise funds for Special Olympics Nevada. He’s even set a world record for bungee jumping on his unicycle off a cliff in New Zealand! Most recently, he (attempted) juggling in zero gravity 🙂

Watch Jeff get “The Zero G Experience.”

Jeff’s latest project is called “Laughter Without Borders!” He’s set a goal to bring joy and happiness to as many disadvantaged and at-risk children as he possibly can… all over the world! He’ll be bringing a different performer friend on each adventure to share/discuss the experience. “Laughter without Borders” kicked off May 2023 in Thailand.

Full series coming in 2024! Watch the trailer on YouTube.

Juggling —> Entertaining —> Connecting —> Inspiring

From a 10-year-old kid doing shows in the kitchen for his “Gram” to becoming a 3-time “Best of Las Vegas” winner, Jeff Civillico has always had a heart to connect with people. He wants to make you laugh, to make you smile, to make you cheer. At the end of the day, Jeff wants you to leave a little lighter and brighter than you were, taking a ripple of happiness with you. That’s probably the reason he became the youngest Producer/Headliner in Las Vegas, and was named Vegas’ “Entertainer of the Year.” 

After a decade of Vegas success, Jeff could feel it was time to move on to new opportunities and expand his platform, reach, and impact… focusing more on developing his connection and communication skills as a host personality, facilitator, and keynote speaker. 

In his keynotes, Jeff utilizes his performance journey “from the kitchen to the Flamingo” as a reference point to spark audience conversation and discovery. Everyone has a story, but not everyone is used to “owning it.”

Jeff connects with the audience, but more importantly Jeff gets the audience to connect with each other… to open up and share their origin and “ripple stories.” Jeff guides the audience to reevaluate and reframe their own stories, because people often fail to give themselves credit for having had a positive impact on others. 

And as one of the busiest speakers on the circuit today,  his message and approach are clearly resonating! Jeff was recently conferred by the National Speakers Association with the “Certified Speaking Professional” (CSP) designation.

Jeff believes in maximizing one’s utility through action, and he lives by example. He consistently creates and develops projects to help others, which as a byproduct gives his life deeper purpose and meaning… like his nonprofit Win Win Charity, his Cisko Sound Scholarships, and his most recent venture “Laughter without Borders,” a philanthropic travel show.  

Jeff believes that we all put positive ripples out into the world that expand well beyond our knowledge and awareness… and he’s on a mission to help you see that too!
