WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT DARRYL
Darryl undeniably proved enormous value-add. His keynote was impressive enough but he was able to remain at the conference and perform a show outdoors under the stars that was 30 minutes of power and passion and everyone was gob-smacked by his talent
You were the consummate professional to deal with and your experience in making events become truly special was gratefully appreciated. On the night, you wowed our audience right from the get go with your dramatic introduction and you held their attention until the conclusion performing brilliantly and providing stunning entertainment.
We required a show-stopping act and we got it in spades with Darryl.
From the moment he stood on a chair during the opening ceremony and stunned the audience with a rousing rendition of the Toreador Song from Carmen to his stunning dinner performance of popular standards from musical theatre Darryl provided the occasion with the polish and class of a performer with an international reputation.
Many delegates gave feedback that this conference was the ‘best ever’ – in part due to the excellent contribution of Darryl Lovegrove who we thank sincerely.
You simply blew our delegates away with your brilliant voice, sharp wit and your willingness to interact with the client and delegates both before and after the event made the night even more of a success. You certainly helped turn the night into one of the best Gala Dinners we have had with this group.
Darryl’s ability to sing and perform as well as fulfil the brief of MC was the perfect offering for our evening.
