Mick Colliss’s tale of mateship, creative thinking and sudoku will leave you breathless with laughter. Mick and his best mates travelled to India to take part in the International Sudoku Championships – even though they didn’t know how to play the game.
Mick 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 growing up, his dream was to play for Australia. But he quickly discovered desire is no substitute for ability. Then finally, at the age of 42, after successive failures at cricket, rugby league, rugby union, surf lifesaving and lawn bowls, he discovers the game of sudoku.
He can’t play that either.
But it doesn’t stop him picking himself and three mates from rugby in the first ever Australian Sudoku team and traveling to India to compete for his country at the World Sudoku Championships.
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.
Clients who have enjoyed his inspiring and very Australian yarn include Telstra, Zurich Insurance, Mazda, ANZ, Optus, Engineers Australia, the Australian Rugby Union, Hockey Australia and Aquinas College.
Mick is also an entertaining, welcoming emcee and has hosted numerous functions for organisations including the Australian Rugby Union, the University of Western Australia, Extract Resources, Bali Rugby Union, Cystic Fibrosis WA and the Emirates Western Force.
