The man who found a unique way to represent his country

About Keynote Speaker Mick Colliss

Mick Colliss is an author, writer, sports commentator, emcee, guest speaker and modern day poet. He was also the vice captain of the first ever Australian Sudoku team. The team travelled to India to compete at the World Sudoku Championships. They didn’t know how to play, but that didn’t bother them.

Determined to represent Australia at something, Mick had originally hoped for success at the sport of rugby. Unsuccessful, he then tried other sports. His run of luck continued until he finally discovered Sudoku. He and three of his best mates became “Australian champions” and were soon on a plane to India to compete at the International Sudoku Championships in India.

Mick did achieve the goal of representing his country even though it wasn’t exactly in the field or the way he expected it to occur. Mick’s is a laugh out loud true story about mateship, having a go and never giving up, no matter what the odds. It’s ideal for corporate, sports and school functions.

There are already discussions about making a film of his story, with the concept being compared to films like The Castle.

Mick is widely regarded as Australia’s most entertaining after dinner speaker/comedian.

If required, he can work in your theme/core messages where relevant to his story (and in consultation with client).


Mick was a great presenter and gave us the perfect finish to the first day of our conference.  His unique story and presentation style was a hit with all the delegates and had the group talking about his amazing story throughout the remainder of the event.
