Emcee, Darryl Lovegrove, hosts corporate event in Hawaii

Award-winning Australian corporate MC, Darryl Lovegrove, crossed the Pacific to host an event in Hawaii.

As one of Australia’s best corporate emcees, Darryl Lovegrove is often asked to speak at international corporate events. This time it was the Partners Life in Hawaii. Not a bad gig!

After emceeing the KEPA Awards in Taupo last year, Darryl was asked by Partners Life CEO Naomi Ballantyne to host the 2018 conference being held in Kona, Hawaii.

With over 400 delegates and their families, it was a week of honouring the top earners for New Zealand’s most prestigious insurance company. Darryl had the job of making sure everyone had a great time and knew where to go and when.

During the conference, Darryl interviewed champion surfer, Bethany Hamilton, following her keynote presentation.

As always Darryl (who has been voted 3 times by Spice Magazine Hot 100 as Australia’s Top 5 Speakers/Presenters) delivered his renowned solo show on the closing night with showstoppers and operatic arias from his fascinating career.
