Mr Bashful at Speakers’ Corner.

Mark is a public speaker based in Sydney. He is the winner of the ABC Radio National’s Now Hear This! competition, and has presented a talk on ABC Radio National’s ‘Ockham’s Razor’ program, hosted by Robyn Williams. He has been the perennial judge of the Genii’s Magical Society’s annual Magic Competition.

 keeps his vocal chords busy as one of the soapbox speakers in Sydney’s Domain and he calls himself ‘Mr Bashful’. He began speaking there to improve his public speaking skills, and to get feedback on his ideas. He keeps doing it for those reasons, and because it’s fun.

You will find him and the other speakers opposite the NSW Art Gallery in Art Gallery Road, on Sundays from 2pm until 5pm. He will be there on Sunday, 24th September, unless it’s raining.
