PROGRAM DESCRIPTION:

 

Jeff Civillico CSP, CPAE is a 2023 Hall of Fame Inductee! He’s also a Las Vegas headliner, top Event Emcee, keynote speaker and philanthropist. He is the Founder & Chairman of Win Win Charity, a 501c3 national non-profit that brings smiles to children in hospitals by arranging in-person and virtual visits from entertainers, athletes, and celebrities.

In Jeff’s presentation for our chapter, he’s going to talk about how to book more events, but he’s not going to focus on the sales and marketing strategies and techniques we often hear about— video, social media, newsletters, testimonials, etc.

Instead, Jeff is going to focus on how to get more gigs by differentiating yourself and adding massive value AFTER you have a contract in hand— during all 3 phases of the event life cycle— BEFORE, DURING and AFTER your event.

SPEAKER BIO:

 

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!

Join us on April 5th for 2 programs and a deep dive afternoon workshop (for Local + National members) to help you increase your reach, revenue, and impact.

  • 7 Actionable Insights to Building a Sustainable Speaking Business and Life
  • 5 Steps to Building a Grand Slam Story that can bring you all the money and impact you could ever want.
  • A Deep Dive Workshop Session to put it all into play so you leave with some wind in your sells!

Walk out Equipped and Inspired with more Clarity, Courage and Commitment to Elevate your Speaking Business and Reach Your Next Summit in this 3-part workshop and seminar.

Whether you feel like you are treading water building your speaking business, trapped in the full-time grind, or have momentum and are ready for your next summit- we have an incredible day of actionable insights and authentic inspiration for you.

In part 1 of our morning session, Manley will pull back the curtain and, in his sometimes painfully transparent and authentic style, share it all.

Grab your seat and get ready to haul in the goods, with no BS, and no secrets withheld. He’ll cover a mind-blowing list of insights so you can develop the mindset, strategy and tactics you need to take your business and life to the next level.

You may find yourself elated, inspired and terrified all at the same time, but you will leave more informed than ever with the good, bad and stomach-churning truth on how Manley built a world class speaking business in 3 epic years, culminating in more than a decade of success on some the most coveted stages in the speaking business.

In Part 2, you will pick up the World Class Storytelling Framework Grand Slam, handing you easy, repeatable strategies and tactics to dramatically speed up your story development process and dramatically increase your impact on the platform.

You will not only have the tools to use over and over forever, but you will also gain at least 10 additional platform tips to ensure your speech is always relevant, engaging and exceptional.

Whether you already are a speaking legend, think you are, or dream to be, Manley personally guarantees this day will be worth every second or he will give you your money back. Seriously! 😃

In our afternoon Local + National members-only 3rd session, you will have an opportunity to stretch your comfort zone during live hot seat coaching with Manley so you can put the World Class Story Telling Framework into action and take your signature story, or a brand-new seed of what’s possible to Your Next Summit.

But wait, that’s not all! 😃

If you register now, you get not one, but two easy-peasy-carrot-peelers. 😉 (Just kidding!)

But, you will be able to ask Manley ANYTHING and he will share EVERYTHING.

AND, you will pick up more speaking strategies to keep your inbox rocking with hot leads.

This is NOT the NSA STL meeting to skip.

Renew and re-energize your commitment to your dream and your dollars with Manley’s Exponential Commitment speaker seminar & workshop experience.

Mark your calendar and reserve your spot today!

SPEAKER BIO:

 

Manley is recognized as an award winning international keynote speaker, business leader, and author whose work has been featured on NBC, CBS, ABC, and Fox, and in The New York Daily News, Entrepreneur, American Express Open Forum and World News.  He also served on the NSA St. Louis Board of Directors, including two terms as President, during a time when they were able to save the chapter from extinction, triple membership, and double revenue – paving the way for the financially stable and thriving chapter we have today.

Leveraging more than twenty years of business, professional speaking and adventure experience, he helps professionals develop breakthrough mindsets to step up and reach their next summit.  As a result of his work, people have more focus, courage, commitment and momentum. 

In fact he wrote a book titled, Reaching Your Next Summit!  9 Vertical Lessons for Leading with More Impact.

During Manley’s eleven years with Build-A-Bear Workshop, his leadership direction helped take the revolutionary retail concept from 40 stores to over 400 worldwide, realizing revenue growth from 55 million to over 474 million, and a successful IPO on the NYSE.  He built an award-winning reputation for implementing business solutions and support that produced measurable results every day. Manley’s leadership influence contributed to a workplace culture that landed Build-A-Bear on the FORTUNE 100 Best Companies to Work For® List four years in a row.

It is this expertise that he shares by applying lessons learned in business and adventures to life’s daily challenges.  The authentic, sincere and deep interpersonal connection Manley makes with your audience enables him to deliver practical and proven content to help organizations maximize their opportunities and develop their most valuable asset, their employees.  Through custom developed programs and support ranging from 60 minutes to 12 months, he will leave you with many actionable techniques, frameworks, and insights.   Most importantly, he can engage your organization in a way that drives real ROI that you can sustain well beyond the presentation, and ultimately affect long term change.

Manley’s inspirational keynotes are brought to life through his national geographic photography and riveting stories culminating from a lifetime of adventure through 25 countries, to over 400 outdoor destinations.   Manley vividly shares compelling lessons from his adventure and leadership experiences in a way that allows you to relate to your mountains.  He will have you hanging beside him surviving in the Himalayas, struggling to communicate in Uzbekistan, and immediately transfer the experience to moving you forward in your courageous efforts.

Manley will challenge your mindset, arm you with ideas you can use, and inspire you to action.

On a personal note, he likes to sleep on the side of mountains.

More shocking is that his wife has been putting up with that for more than two decades, and his two teens still kiss him on the cheek in front of their friends.

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION:

 

Our December 2023 meeting is all about connecting, collaborating, and celebrating our amazing members, and making our exceptional community even stronger than before!  

We will start by conducting three 30-minute ‘Dolphin Tank’ sessions.  In each of the three sessions, one of our members will give a brief description of where they need help in their speaking business, then the group will brainstorm ways for them to jump-start or improve that aspect of their business.  It could be their website, marketing, developing their signature speech, or something else, but this will give them the opportunity to share what they need and draw on the wisdom and support from the NSA St. Louis community.  Not only will this help the person in the Dolphin Tank, the rest of us will also learn from the feedback they receive.

After the Dolphin Tank sessions, three of our newer members will give a 10 to 15-minute talk about themselves and their speaking business so we can get to know them better.  Audience members will also have a chance to ask questions following each presentation.

We will close with lunch, extended networking, and celebrating our community.

We hope you will join us for this special meeting with a focus on greater connections, collaboration, and community – and going into 2024 stronger than ever before!
