An entrepreneur in Action
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 within three years they had established offices in Sydney, Los Angeles, London, New York and Bogota Colombia. Performing for millions of people worldwide, 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 entertainment act in the world. The ultimate compliment for “The Three Waiters” was an invitation to perform for the greatest opera singers of our time (and the original inspiration for the act) “The Three Tenors”.
Overcoming challenges in tough times
A high-energy, charismatic presenter, Darryl tells his story in an engaging, anecdotal style and cuts through corporate jargon to speak in a compelling and relevant manner. His business experience encompasses start-ups and developing overseas business ventures. He discusses the challenges faced by business by reliving his own journey which required attention to areas such as driving focus, goal setting, price leadership, quality as a differentiator, and customer service. Faced with 9/11 as a backdrop, Darryl had to determine whether to stay or go as the US economy took a downturn and the events industry was crippled overnight. Darryl will discuss how he handled this massive challenge and highlight how resilience, endurance and a desire to ‘adapt or die’ can ensure success and survival in business.
An engaging twist…
Through-out a 20 year career as an award-winning vocalist and musical theatre performer, Darryl has been witness to the power music has to really engage audiences. Concluding his presentation with a live performance of the legendary aria “Nessun Dorma” he says “regardless of culture, language or demographic, people all over the world are moved by this aria, which has a unique ability to inspire and motivate”. Audiences describe the surprise performance as an “unexpected thrill” that left them feeling they could achieve anything!
Darryl’s success is a result of an exceptional product, a passion for innovation and quality, and the ability to harness and lead extreme talent. His unique blend of down-to-earth presentation style and extraordinary performance skills will not only motivate your team but leave them feeling ready to tackle their next challenge.
