Conference Speaker Spotlight

Mick Colliss to share his humour, stories and sports poetry

Mick Colliss is an author, writer, rugby commentator, emcee, guest speaker and modern day poet. He is a gifted story teller with a very funny story to tell. As a young kid, he always dreamed about playing for Australia. In anything. He tried a number of different sports - rugby league, rugby union, swimming, cricket, surf lifesaving - even lawn bowls, all without luck. But despite the disappointments and failures, he never, ever gave up.

Then, at the age of 42, all the hard work, dedication and perseverance paid off when he finally achieved his lifelong goal of wearing the green and gold - just not in the way you might think.

A modern day poet, Mick Colliss also writes poetry people can understand and has established a wide following as a result.

He has recited his work on Channel 7, Channel 10, ABC, 6PR and 2UE and had it published in The Sydney Morning Herald, The Sunday Times, The West Australian, Australian Rugby News and Rugby League week.

SMH columnist and best selling author Peter FitzSimons voted one piece 'Sports Poem of the Year' in 2002.
