Daniel Lamarre is a highly interesting individual. As the CEO of Cirque de Soleil, he plays a direct role in the iconic contemporary circus. As a speaker, audiences are privileged to Daniel's business management insight, straight from the stage of the world's largest and arguably most renowned entertainment company. Cirque de Soleil, since exploding onto the scene, has become an internationally renowned show - it is more than a professional circus, it is an institution.
Born in Quebec, Canada, Daniel was initially interested in communications. He studied a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Ottowa, graduating in 1976. Since his success as an influential business figure, he has gone on to receive Doctorates from McGill University. Daniel's speeches touch upon his initial career, and what sparked his interest in communications, which later led to a profession in journalism.
After initially working as a journalist, Daniel then became the Communications Director for the Fédération des Caisses Populaires du Centre du Québec. Daniel immediately established himself as an invaluable business thought leader, so it is no surprise that in 1977 he was a Director for Cogeco, a media company. He thrived in leadership roles, like CEO of the largest private television broadcaster in Quebec; a role which gave Daniel the experienced needed to work with Cirque de Soleil.
As an international powerhouse, the circus was going to Daniel's biggest challenge yet. As the CEO of the entertainment company, he focused his attention on the companies financial status, including sales, and the business culture, like daily operations. Daniel set up the C2MTL Conference in 2012, an event that bridged the gap between creative leaders and business figureheads. As a speaker, Daniel's understanding of conference planning makes him professional and experienced. An event is safe in Daniel's hands.
In recognition of his work, Daniel was awarded the 2019 Distinguished Leadership Award for Corporate Citizenship from the Inter-American Dialogue, for his innovative work with Cirque de Soleil and the One Drop Foundation. The One Drop Foundation is supported by Daniel, and provides clean water to Latin American youths. Daniel has a wealth of anecdotes and business strategies to share as a speaker, making him a popular choice for event planners.
