“WORK WITH JEFF! Jeff is professional, energizing, sincere and a joy to work with. He had the attention of the WIN Speaker Series audience for the entire hour. Jeff also had them laughing and talking with one another. He did not speak at the group, he engaged with the group. Jeff was in the audience walking around, high fiving and making everyone feel important. The WIN Speaker Series members were buzzing about his message and demeanor. WORK WITH JEFF!”

This year was our largest year yet as we brought our global sales team representing 9 countries together in Vegas. Jeff not only brings us closer together, he creates memories year after year that enhance the world class culture and experience of working for ECI.

Last week wouldn’t have been the same without you Jeff! Thank you for your partnership!”

“Jeff Civillico is a must have for keeping meetings and events energetic and engaging! He is such a professional to work with and goes above and beyond to learn about the company and culture of the company he is working with. We engaged in an excellent team building activity that involved designing and packing boxes for children in the hospital. It was great to give back and get our whole group involved. If you’re looking to entertain yet motivate your team, Jeff is the man for the job. Our team thoroughly enjoyed his keynote, team building activity and just getting to know him through our social events. Thank you, Jeff!”

“At Saturday’s meeting of the National Speakers Association’s Southern California chapter, Jeff delivered a super engaging talk called “Book More Gigs: Best Practices Before, During, and After Events.” His virtual presentation (conducted entirely via Zoom) captivated the audience from start to finish. Jeff generously revealed insights from his extensive speaking career, offering valuable, practical advice on standing out as a speaker once you’ve secured an engagement. His professionalism and approachability throughout the booking process were equally impressive. I wholeheartedly endorse Jeff for anyone looking to enhance their live in-person or virtual events!”

~AJ MacQuarrie

I highly recommend Jeff for corporate events and any event. He Emceed with grace, made it fun and awards show-like and even brought his own French fry jacket! That impressed our whole French Fry Global sales team ! Thank you Jeff for hitting it out of the ballpark!!”

~Rebekah Johnson

“NSA Carolinas just hosted Jeff to keynote one of our chapter workshops virtually. He was PHENOMENAL and 6/5 stars! Jeff is not only a fabulous keynoter and entertainer, but also a professional Emcee and Las Vegas headliner. 10 years ago I saw Jeff live in Vegas during his show and remember thinking, “this guy is special.” 10 years later he’s earning Hall of Fame speaker designation from the National Speakers Association! Duly deserved! Jeff is absolutely fantastic. For your next corporate/association event, Jeff will deliver and be the best you’ve ever seen.” 

~Kevin Snyder

2023-2024 President at NSA Carolinas

“Jeff is an amazing performer and an astute business leader. He has the unique ability to wow an audience while also Imparting business and leadership skills. He was a recent keynote for our conference of ~700 college students interested in entrepreneurship. He began by demonstrating credibility for his trade as a performer with a top notch juggling performance and then shared his story of building a business and brand and ended with an incredible challenge to the group. All in less than an hour. As a long time entrepreneurship educator and entrepreneur, I can honestly say this was one of the best keynotes I have ever experienced – and that says a lot because I have attended too many conferences to count over the years.”

~Dr. Rebecca White

James W Walter Distinguished Chair of Entrepreneurship and Entrepreneurship Center Director at University of Tampa

“Jeff embodies professionalism! Even when things don’t go as planned, he adapts to the situation in a way only a highly-skilled and experienced presenter can. He is committed to his clients and laser focused on their satisfaction.”

~Joel Neaveill

Director of Procurement at Louisville Metro Government

“Jeff brought the fun and energy to our #BeefBash23 stage! In advance of the event he was great to work with, he truly engaged us in developing his message, he valued saying things right and he was willing to customize and add the fun! Jeff worked with us to create a completely custom session which included juggling Certified Angus Beef Filets! He brought so much energy and created a complete surprise and delight moment for our audience. Additionally, he brought up a volunteer and had so much fun with him, later that day when that volunteer had to come back to the stage; the crowd was still chanting his name.

Thanks for being awesome, Jeff! And thanks for being not just a presenter, but a true partner to us to build a session that wowed our attendees!”

~Danielle Matter

Director, Brand Experience & Education at Certified Angus Beef

“Jeff presented a program (not his keynote) to NSA-LV (Las Vegas). He was amazing. Although he didn’t juggle anything, he did share his process for dealing with clients before, during, and after an engagement to maximize repeat business and word of mouth marketing. He was open and honest about his business and genuinely wanted to help our members. It was obvious that he LOVED taking questions from the audience. At our Monday debrief, everyone had a list of take-aways. My favorite take-away is to put AirTags in my backpack and my luggage. (I already ordered some.) Another take-away is to over-communicate with clients, especially your process and what they should expect. Of course, Jeff is talented, but a lot of people are talented. There is no doubt his processes are a big reason for his incredible success. If he’s willing to share with your chapter, jump at the chance.
Mark Stiving, President of NSA Las Vegas.”

“Jeff was the best closing keynote! He not only inspired our audience, but also me!! So much in fact, that he inspired me to go off script and tell my origin story and what impacted my life as part of my closing after. Our audience laughed, cried and are still talking about Jeff’s message. Thank you for really listening to us and our goal for the message for our conference! Highly recommend Jeff – if you want a true professional who incorporates your messaging into his keynote.”

~Heather Richmond

Jeff also went the extra mile before and after his performance to make sure we were pleased with his presentation. I would highly recommend Jeff for your event.”

~Matt Hart

“Jeff provided an absolutely AMAZING back to school convocation for Cleveland ISD in Texas. In front of 2,100+ staff, Jeff energized, connected with, entertained and most importantly, made every educator in the room feel as if they were the most important person anywhere!

Jeff’s ability to understand the crowd is because of the genuine person he is. Testimonials from staff members today included comments such as, ‘The best convocation ever,’ ‘This guy is beyond amazing,’ ‘I wish we would have had him 10 years ago.’ ‘Can you please bring him back every year.’

Any organization will be wow’d by his gift in delivering to the masses. Thank you, Jeff, for taking Cleveland ISD to the next level of success!”

~Stephen W. McCanless

Superintendent at Cleveland Independent School District (CISD)

“Looking to inject some new energy and excitement into our annual gala, my team asked Jeff to serve as a performer, emcee, AND auctioneer throughout our event. He exceeded expectations in every single area.

While we were very aware of his exceptional talents as a juggler, we didn’t fully realize just how seamlessly he was able to transition from juggling to delivering hilarious comedic routines that had the entire room in stitches. His comedic timing was impeccable, effortlessly connecting with people of all ages and backgrounds. As an emcee, he kept the event flowing smoothly and ensured that everyone felt involved and engaged throughout the night.

The impact of Jeff’s performance extended far beyond the event itself. In the days following the event, we received an overwhelming amount of positive feedback from our attendees. Many of them mentioned that it was not just the best fundraiser we ever hosted, but the best event they had ever attended, period. Jeff’s contribution was frequently singled out as the highlight of the evening. The combination of talent, humor, and crowd engagement created an atmosphere that was both entertaining and memorable.

Additionally, I want to highlight Jeff’s professionalism and dedication. From the initial planning stages to the final performance, he was a pleasure to work with. Jeff was prompt, reliable, and exhibited a strong work ethic throughout. His ability to adapt to the unique requirements of our event and cater to our specific needs was truly exemplary.

I wholeheartedly recommend Jeff for any event that requires exceptional entertainment. His act and natural ability to connect with our guests truly elevated the evening, raising the bar for future events to follow.”
