“The entire event was of the highest quality, informative and insightful. It inspired new thinking for me. The event also offered a magnificent opportunity to meet some of the top minds in the field. Of particular value was the amount of time given to open discussion, an often missed opportunity at a number of such conferences.”

– Chris Stein, formerly of The Movember Foundation 

A stimulating event, very well organised with great opportunities for networking.

Dr Frank Keating, Royal Holloway, University of London.

“I really liked the diversity of the talks. I also like the poems and the songs”

Dr Gijsbert Stoet, University of Glasgow

 “The conference was first class – not just in the quality of speakers and their presentations – but also in the breadth of the subjects discussed. The importance to our society of both recognising and then tackling issues that have a negative impact on male psychology can not be underestimated. This conference should be a must for any one interested in psychology, let alone male psychology.”

– Mark Brooks, Chair, The ManKind Initiative

“I found the day that I attended to be stimulating, informative and discussion provoking.  When I got home, I discussed the topics of the day with my three men (husband and grown up sons) and they were very interested too. There was a wide variety of different topics as diverse as prostate cancer and boys underachieving in schools”

– Jennie Cummings-Knight, Golden Leaf Counselling.

“I enjoyed the conference very much”

– Uwe Thummel, PhD Candidate, VU University Amsterdam.

“An a inspiring, diverse and interesting conference”

– Dannielle Claridge, University of Hull
