Motivation through Honesty

As soon as you hear him speak, his resonant, rich voice demands attention. Built like a Gridiron footballer and with charisma galore, Berlin-based Derrick Lawrence chose opera singing over football. He won the world’s most prestigious singing competition in New York when he was 23, but don’t let that fool you into thinking it all came easily.

Derrick talks about the road to “overnight success”, the dangers of rushing your development and trying to skip important, foundational steps in your journey, and what it is to be motivated through honesty.

His wisdom is framed around his experience getting to and performing at the pinnacle of the operatic world, but it’s relevant to all of us in every walk of life.

He’s refreshing, extremely insightful, painfully honest as well as compassionate. Derrick has the wonderful capacity to keep it real and inspire at the same time. You’re going to enjoy this conversation!
