I just wanted to say that Rupert McCall is one of the best poets and public speakers I have witnessed firsthand.

 

On behalf of the Australian Cricket Team, I asked him to recite a poem for us - an ASHES tribute - during the Fifth Test at the SCG in season 2013/14. ‘Tale of the Bail’ tells the story of the Ashes and, when he spoke, he added lines which related to the performance of our team that summer. All of our guys hung off his every word when he was speaking. He commanded the room which is not an easy thing to do in the Aussie dressing shed and I was extremely thankful for him coming in to inspire us. The boys put on their Baggy Green caps that morning and tore into the English batting order with fierce determination and pride!

 

I have no problem recommending Rupert to any company that needs an MC, poet or public speaker. He is a proven performer highly rated by many people and will enhance any function or special occasion you might have planned. To go with that, you have one of the nicest blokes I have met.
