International Men’s Day Conference Plymouth 2019…
A week today, Plymouth will be hosting their very own International Men’s Day Conference here at the New Continental Hotel.
The International Men’s Day (IMD) Conference is a platform to encourage, enable and empower men to teach boys values and responsibilities. Furthermore, the hope is that it will create a springboard that connects everyone to a better understanding of issues such as men’s health.
IMD is a grassroots movement which is totally inclusive. It’s an event that invites everyone to celebrate every single man and every boy. It doesn’t matter their ability, social background, ethnicity, sexuality, gender identity, religious belief or relationship status; it’s simply about them being seen, heard and celebrated.
Tuesday 19th November, from 1pm…
This event, which is being held at the New Continental Hotel and it really does seem like everyone in Plymouth is supporting it. Probably in part because this event has organically grown into a very purposeful solution to some very real challenges. Challenges that we all face on a daily basis.
The afternoon will include informative talks from some key advocates, including: Ann James, chief executive of Plymouth NHS Hospitals Trust; Toby Gorniak director of the local hip hop dance company, Street Factory; Andy Shaw, head of community nursing at St Luke’s Hospice; Dr Jasmine Kelland, programme lead on the human resources post graduate programme at Plymouth University; Dr Sophie Mayhew, consultant clinical psychologist; Sven Lauch, Eyes Up Training; Dave Cartwright, army medic; John Hamblin chief executive of Shekinah, and Alan Butler of Pride Plymouth.
A Day To Celebrate…
The speakers feature influential and inspirational people, speaking about their experiences across a range of different industries, areas and diverse topics.
The Plymouth conference aims to celebrate positive male role models, provide a forum for open discussion and will most certainly offer access to health care support. There will be ample opportunity for delegates to mingle, meet and learn from each other and from the various organisations and exhibitors supporting the conference.
The event is totally FREE to attend so reserve your place here!
New Continental Hotel on November 19th from 1pm, with speakers from 2pm.
