Queensland Assoc of State Schools Principals (QASSP) held their 50th-anniversary conference at the RNA Showgrounds in Brisbane and for such a big occasion I was thrilled to not only be the closing Speaker but also MC the whole event as well as perform at the gala dinner. Conference Organiser, Magdalene St Clare, had been recommended by the Australian Primary Principals Assoc to have me host, perform and speak after I spoke at the annual National Conference in Sydney a year earlier. So it was a challenging 3 days for me but I must say I loved every minute especially as I am a trained Primary School Teacher and totally related to the profession. A big thanks must go out to Magdalene and her stellar crew for looking after me.
“Darryl was the star attraction at the 2016 Direct National Combined Principals’ Associations’ State Conference. We required a show-stopping speaker and we got it in spades with Darryl.
Darryl’s keynote was entertaining and inspiring – and his ability to rouse 400+ delegates to their feet to join in the final notes of Puccini’s Nessun Dorma brought the house down.
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.” Magdalene St Clare, QASSP Business Manager and Conference Manager
