The Trustable Man

“This 6-week course isn’t about dating, it isn’t about relationships, it isn’t about building self-confidence, and it isn’t about becoming a better business person. It absolutely will have a massive impact in all of those areas in your life, but this course is really about becoming a real man in modern day society. Once that transition occurs, women and other men all around you will relate to you in a completely different way.”

Men’s Shed

A safe and happy environment where men are welcome to work a project of their choice in their own time and where the only ‘must’ is to observe safe working practices. All in a spirit of mateship.

The Menswork Project

A group of men (based in WA, Australia) who, for many years, have been involved in creating innovative and effective personal development programs for men. These programs help support men in understanding their life’s journey as a man and finding the tools which will see them through the issues men often confront in their lives.

Essentially Men

Our purpose is to connect and inspire men and our approach is experiential, holistic and 100% New Zealand-grown in response to the needs and diversity of Kiwi men. We conduct events for men of all ages and foster an ethos of men supporting each others’ lives in the context of their whanau and community. We encourage community development, a culture of service, and respect for women. The work is guided by the Essentially Men Education Trust, a Registered Charitable Trust funded by course fees and donations.
