“I’ve hired a lot of keynotes in my 25+ years and Jeff is one of only three who really took the time to dig in, understand the audience, the rest of our content, and the program, and weave it into his presentation seamlessly. Jeff, it was a pleasure to meet you and experience your one of a kind keynote!”

~Stephanie Harris

President at The Incentive Research Foundation

“I just finished working with Jeff for the second time in the last few years, the first being just prior to the Covid lockdown. Jeff wore many hats at our week-long program this year. He was the emcee for the General Session, performed an hour-long comedy juggling show and also emceed other outdoor events. In every one of them, he performed exceptionally well. His comedy juggling show was a highlight as he entertained and captivated the group of 600. In pre-show meetings, he contributed many creative ideas that the team incorporated into the events. He has a natural and effortless ability to engage with attendees but I am sure it was honed after working over 5,000 shows. I look forward to working with him again! Jeff is an exceptional talent!”

I was impressed by how prepared he was for the performance and by his all-in attitude throughout the week. I highly recommend Jeff for any corporate engagements. Thanks, Jeff, for helping make the Residence Inn conference a great success!”

“Jeff is the consummate professional. He served as our event host and was collaborative, creative, flexible resourceful and talented! He helped us during the content development process, he assisted us in finding another performer we needed, he came into offline rehearsal with his parts memorized, and when it was showtime he PERFORMED – not only the Host role, but also a short juggling/balancing segment. The audience loved him, and so did we. I highly recommend Jeff and hope to have the chance to work with him again myself.”

“Jeff has been a pleasure to work with on our last two events. Very accommodating, professional and easy-going. He was emcee for our client and they could not be more thrilled. Jeff was so engaging and added a personal touch to all he did.”

~Yaneli O'Donnell

Event Manager at Leading Authorities, Inc.

“I hired Jeff as a virtual Emcee in 2020 and hybrid Emcee in 2021. Jeff is absolutely amazing to work with! He takes care to gets to know his client and the event speakers. He is always willing to take a planning call, read through scripts, and make suggestions. His ideas for our virtual event and the production was top of the line. He kept our attendees engaged and laughing during a time where meeting planners were nervous about executing on line events for the first time, and attendees were sick of staring at screen, missing being in person. Jeff will go out of his way to make your event a success and he works well under pressure. He collaborated seamlessly with me on site to make last minute adjustments to the program execute as if they were planned all along. Together we planned a networking event for the first time attendees and his game idea to get people talking was perfect! Getting adults to play a game in cocktail attire and competing with the bar is not always an easy task. But Jeff’s enthusiasm is infectious. The guests had a wonderful time and couldn’t stop talking about the fun. Those who were not first time attendees were jealous that they didn’t get to join in. Thank you Jeff for being so easy and fun to work with!”

~Nikki Novak

“We needed a host, an entertainer and an auctioneer for our fundraising event and in Jeff, we got all three! Beyond his versatility, Jeff was an amazing partner for our event … from the planning stages to the night of the event.
