The Banjo Paterson Australian Poetry Festival is held in Orange each year. In 2019 we had the pleasure of Marco Gliori as the featured poet of the Festival. Marco is a consummate professional, able to move effortlessly from performance to compere/MC and back again. Importantly he has a wide-ranging repertoire that he can adapt to a wide variety of audiences, so he is always able to connect and engage, whether at the Poets Brawl (an exciting variation on Poetry in the Pub) or entertaining the large and appreciative audience at the Banjo Paterson Festival Poets Dinner under the stars in Molong. We have no hesitation in recommending him.

For 20 + years Marco Gliori has been part of Tenterfield Oracles of the Bush Marco’s genuine love of bush poetry explodes into the most amazing on-stage performances.  Such is his talent he can silence a crowd of 500 with a heartfelt poem and have them falling off their chairs with laughter a few minutes later.  100% talent, professionalism and management!

I spent the first part of the show watching some of the "hard heads" in the room. They were in stitches. Now I could relax and enjoy a fantastic showman and bush poet. I woke up on Thursday morning with sore sides (from laughing) and sore shoulders derived from pats on the back from people saying how refreshingly funny and entertaining you were. I would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone running a conference, a sporting function, or simply as an after dinner speaker.

As a conference entertainer or presenter, Marco has the ability to put into perspective and bring reality to many situations through his entertaining and enveloping style. His presentations become part of the conference. They can be an interlude to a busy day or the highlight of the conference dinner. Either way Marco adds another very different dimension to any conference or function. No-one will be disappointed after hearing a Marco Gliori presentation of Australian Bush Poetry.

We had the pleasure of Marco performing at our State Sales Conference and he brought the house down with his ‘Race Call’ and ‘Mr Whippy Poem’. Despite the attendees being of very diverse backgrounds and ages, Marco appealed to everyone. A really great night.
