Full Presenter Profile & Bio
Darryl Lovegrove is an entrepreneur with global business experience who has worked in varied and challenging situations and is dedicated to providing high quality, innovative event entertainment. Co-creator of the world-famous corporate entertainment act "The Three Waiters", Darryl (and a former business partner) took a simple entertainment concept and turned it into a thriving international business that revolutionised event entertainment globally. Topped off with live performances of operatic arias (which audiences describe as highly motivating) his presentation will inspire you and your team, provide tips and ideas to motivate for success and illustrate how to be ready for action during tough times.
In 1998, inspired by the world's greatest opera singers "The Three Tenors", two actors conceived a simple entertainment concept called "The Three Waiters". An instant hit within the events industry, demand grew so rapidly that branches were established in Sydney, Los Angeles, London, New York and Bogota Colombia. Performing to millions, their simple concept became a global brand. Surviving 9/11; the Global Financial Crisis and fierce rivalry from copycats, the act became an award-winning international enterprise and the number one corporate act in the world. Illustrative of their huge success (and the ultimate professional compliment) was an invitation to perform for their original inspiration - none other than world famous opera singers "The Three Tenors" themselves!
