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 3 years they had established offices in Sydney, Los Angeles, London, New York and Bogota Colombia. Performing to over 3 million people worldwide, their ‘simple concept’ has become a global brand, surviving fierce rivalry from copycats and 9/11.

After 11 years, Lovegrove sold his financial interest in the Act and established Lovegrove Entertainment right at the start of the Global Financial Crisis. He shares how he was still able to produce innovative and award winning corporate entertainment acts in a time which has seen demand drop considerably. His first hand account of being able to ‘walk the talk’ has established him as one of Australia’s business resilience experts and seen Spice Magazine rate him in the top 5 speakers and presenters two years running.
As entertaining as it is informative, in a manner unique to the professional speaking circuit, Lovegrove punctuates his story with the live performance of operatic arias making him the perfect opener or closer for a Conference, incentive or event.
