Messages for Men 2019


Back for the third year running, Messages for Men is a one of a kind mini-conference in London, in recognition of International Men’s Day.

Join our annual mini-conference to celebrate international men’s day. Listen to our many speakers as they celebrate, inform, entertain and discuss masculinity and all the issues that men & boys face in our increasingly misandrist society.

Sunday 17th November 2019, 3pm – 11pm/late, Central London Location TBA

The keynote address will be delivered by William Collins, author of the critically important book ‘The Empathy Gap‘, recently released.

The event will be introduced by Elizabeth Hobson, hosted by Natty.

2019 is set to be our busiest event yet so we are starting at a slightly earlier time of 2pm, we have a bumper line up of short, sharp and snappy speeches for you so I hope you are ready.
