What people are saying about the 2011 conference

The First National Conference for Men and Boys – held in Brighton and Hove in November 2011, generated a huge amount of praise. Here’s a sample of some of the feedback we’ve received from people who attended the day……..

“A fascinating and inspiring day. Thanks to everyone who made the time to be there and especially to Glen and the Men’s Network team for making it happen.”

Peter Baker, CEO, The Men’s Health Forum

“It was a fantastic event!”

Mark Brooks, The ManKind Initiative

“I can’t shake the feeling that we should build on the conference. What I really liked was the sense of equality between small groups and big national charities.”

Rob Williams, CEO, The Fatherhood Institute

“Thank you everyone – especially Glen and the Network – for an energising conference. The people I met and what was said will stay with me.”

Jennie Williams, Inequality Agenda

“We thought the format was crazily ambitious but it worked really well because it allowed for so much discussion between participants.  What was truly impressive was the articulacy with which professional and academic expertise was showcased, and the common themes that were highlighted.”

“What you and the Men’s Network is doing is so important and the conference was a really exciting and necessary event.”
