Darryl Lovegrove, motivational speaker and renowned entertainer, shared his entrepreneurial journey…
“20 years ago this Easter I was playing ‘Jesus’ at the beginning of a 16 month tour of the NZ and Australian productions of ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’. I would go on to perform the show over 500 times taking in 9 cities to nearly (with Jon Stevens & Deni Hines) one million people. It would be an incredible turning point in my life that would lead to 6 years as a full time actor followed by 12 years of setting up the corporate entertainment act ‘The Three Waiters’ in Australia, the UK and the US. The act would go on to be seen by over 3 million people in over 80 countries. Eventually in 2009 I would establish my own company producing award winning event entertainment acts before having the opportunity to speak at over 50 conferences sharing my story and offering take home messages that have resonated among thousands of audiences members. Yes I’ve been lucky these past 20 years.
As I prepare to speak on the main platform at this years Million Dollar Round Table (MDRT) in Toronto in June I am acutely aware of the ongoing need for people in business and associations as owners or managers to gain as much inspiration and practical advise as possible in order for them to advance their own goals and ambitions. To be asked to contribute at various seminars and conferences is always an honour and something I don’t take lightly.
My story is not just about the good times but the many setbacks and struggles along the way resulting in my messages of focus, innovation and resilience.
As always, I incorporate a little opera and make sure the number one principle is having fun. As someone once said ‘Life is short. The least we can do is be entertaining’.
I hope you enjoy some of the stories.”
