I like MenConnect a lot. It’s a simple format, I can go as deep as I like, and I get to see men I care about, all in one day. That’s very cool.

I’ve been to three MenConnect gatherings now and have thoroughly enjoyed them all. There’s something special about the one-day format and venue. I can drop my mask and just be me.

MenConnect is a wonderful day. I love its simplicity and its suitability for men of all experiences and backgrounds.

The group sessions are focused and effective and the breaks provide a really good opportunity to catch up with old friends and make some new ones.

In short, MenConnect is a well-organised, thoughtfully prepared day, delivered well. More please!

In short, it was an excellent day: gathering, getting into the space, setting the intention, getting into groups; the three tribal group sessions were focused and simple; then to regather at the end with a simple affirmation.

Great for men with a range of experiences, and a familiar environment for more experienced men.

Timing of the day’s schedule was perfect. Mike Mee was a warm and skilled tribal group leader. The venue is just beautiful and convenient. Food was really good and due acknowledgement of our host’s troubles was kind.
