5 years ago, mental health speaker, coach and consultant, Andy was told by his partner that she wanted him to be “more manly.” His response was to ask: “What does that mean? And how do I do that?”
Having felt a very strong aversion to stereotypical notions of masculinity growing up, Andy went on a journey to explore what it means to be a man in 2024. This has included campaigning and speaking about men’s mental health and masculinity and also setting up his own men’s group. In this monthly group, Andy helps other men open up to each other, sharing about their lives and exploring these questions of masculinity together.
In this 60 minute workshop, join Andy to explore:
How cultural norms around masculinity can be very limiting, and lead to feelings of shame and inadequacy
The difficulty of knowing how to be a man in 2023
Positive role models and character traits that men might aspire to.
In this interactive session, we encourage participants to share (anonymously or openly) in this complex and emotive topic.
Available as a live workshop on-site at your office or virtually online.
A highly experienced coach, consultant and speaker.
Following the workshop, you’ll receive a recording (if virtual) and a copy of the slides.
The Men’s Mental Health talk was transformational! There is such good commentary around the office from people who joined too.
It was SO interesting and opened up some interesting discussions between my male and female colleagues. I’m definitely going to have conversations with the men in my life about how I can support them.
Listening to the speaker’s very open recounting of the issues he faced really resonated with me. It’s really nice to see men’s mental health being normalised more, and to see an environment that openly encourages sharing like this.
