Darryl Lovegrove is a showman – an award-winning performer and producer of some of the biggest and most popular corporate entertainment shows in Australasia. As a performer, he has starred in shows like Les Miserables, Chess and Jesus Christ Superstar. He has shared the stage with talent as diverse as Sarah Brightman, Jimmy Barnes, Glenn Shorrock and the Wiggles. As a producer, Darryl has been responsible for the creation and staging of shows of every conceivable nature all around the globe, including ‘Looking through a Glass Onion – an evening with John Lennon in words and music’, The Leading Men, Jersey to Motown, Darryl & Harmony and planet Earth’s biggest corporate entertainment act – The Three Waiters.
For more than 20 years, Darryl has made a living in an art form that demands peak performance for every performance, in a business where million dollar investments can be burned up in a single night, and in an industry where failure is equated to death. He is part of the only institution in the world which has been dying for four thousand years and has never succumbed. He is a showman and he believes that the world of show offers a brilliant metaphor for both business and life.
In the small world that is the stage we tell stories to move you and to entertain you. On the larger stage that is the world, however, those shows become more than that. They are metaphors for wanting it more than anyone else, being your own champion, being your own superstar, blazing your own path, saying yes to opportunity, following your instincts, being eager, and passionate, learning, nurturing your real, lasting relationships, not being a jerk, and freeing your imagination so you can become all that you want to be.
Darryl Lovegrove is a showman and he believes every person and business can learn and be inspired by what shows teach us – not just the stories that they tell but the stories and the people behind them. He explores themes that address peak performance, resilience, mindset, focus, passion, innovation and what it takes to not only reach for the stars but to live among them.
