How it all started
Neal Webb, Creative Director of Energy Entertainments has been performing fire shows and organising events around the World for the past 14 years. He is now working out of the Gold Coast & Sydney performing and delivering events for various clients Australia-wide but still visits the white island of Ibiza, Spain and England during the summer months when possible, and will again after the pandemic and travel restrictions ease.
Neal has been studying Kung Fu, Tai Chi and Yoga for the past 14 years which has kept him active but grounded. Flow Arts, Whips and Dance have also contributed while Surfing, Football, Basketball and any other sport he can get his hands on helps as well. Neal spends a lot of time organising and/or choreographing show for various clients Australia-wide, he also creates team-building workshops for corporate clients involving circus, self-defence, puzzles, games and communication. He also works with various children's projects and designs workshops and shows to educate children to move and respect others more.
Originally, Neal worked as a Plumber in the UK and began to take on projects with teams of
skilled workers. However once qualified, he had a desire to travel the world. When a 6 month plumbing job was complete, he would pack his bags, choose a country and travel it! He spent a year trekking through New Zealand, venturing through the deserts and wilderness of Australia, climbing the Himalayan mountains, venturing through the chaos of India and Nepal, soaking up the wonders of Japan and South East Asia, finding his way through the Middle East and then began searching the world for the best scuba dive spots. He believes ‘The Ningaloo reef in Western Australia wins hands down as everything is gigantic!’
After embarking on these adventures around the world, Neal found himself working as a Scuba Dive Master in the Philippines. His role was to plan various scuba dives in various places for groups of clients that came to the island. He worked closely with the dive shop owners and the captain of the boat and his crew top find the best dive spots in the right position to suit the conditions and the level of guests that joined. While organising dive tours Neal began to support other Dive Masters under and above the water. He had an opportunity to arranged some entertainment for the hotel next to the dive shop and after a night of fire and music the next hotel asked for him to do the same and the ball began to roll and still hasn't stopped 14 years later.
After Philippine adventures, Neal moved to Ibiza, Spain and set up an Energy Entertainments with Adam Mahmoud. Performing at high-end events, working as a stage manager, choreographing themed circus shows and also creating fitness programs in Kung Fu, Yoga and Gymnastics. He didn’t have much time to party in the world’s most famous clubs and bars but had the chance to perform for them instead! Privilege (The World’s Biggest Club), Zoo Project, Space, Ushuaia and so many more bars, weddings, corporate events and parties in some of the grandest villas on the Island.
