Men's Health Talk

Our 1 hour interactive Men’s Health Talk encourages the men in your workplace to take a more proactive approach to their health and wellbeing. It's a fun session but it packs a punch, addressing a lot of men's health issues that just don't get talked about enough. We talk about what healthy living means for men and what signs and symptoms of illness to look out for. We encourage your workers to get a general health check-up, to start talking about their health, and to get help when they need it. It's a great fit for a variety of workplace, conference, and community group situations, including factory workers, business managers, health providers, and interest groups. We can run the talk during your business hours, or as an after work event. Book your Men's Health Talk for a healthier more productive workforce.

It’s Interactive:

We take a two minute exercise break mid way through to get heart rates up, spark some friendly competition, and improve concentration. This is led by Robin Leaton, physiotherapist and advisor to the Men’s Health Trust, via video.

At the end of the talk we have a blood pressure and waist measurement taking session with worksheets to take home and keep track of how things are going. Due to the interactive nature of the presentation, the audience size is limited to 40 per session.

Health Talk Packs:

Everyone gets a take home pack which includes:

  • Men’s Health Check-ups brochure: How to book a Check-up, what to expect, and what kinds of things you can talk to your doctor about.
  • Signs & Symptoms brochure: How to recognise the early signs of common men’s illnesses and cancers, and what to do about it.
  • Tape measure to keep tabs on waist size.
  • Worksheets for blood pressure and waist size.
  • Men’s Health Trust pen printed with our website so it’s always handy.

CURRENTLY AUCKLAND AND WELLINGTON ONLY. We are working towards expanding our network to reach more areas in 2017.

Our Men’s Health Talk is 1 hour long.

This is made up of a 45 minute talk and a 15 minute health checks session.

Our Men’s Health Talk is a good fit for a variety of workplace, conference, and community group situations. We give our talk to factory workers, business managers, health providers, and interest groups.

The Talk is targeted at a male audience, and in our experience, men participate and open up more in these sessions when it’s an all male audience.

Session size is limited to 40 participants due to the interactive nature of the presentation. If you have a larger audience size we recommend splitting the group over several sessions, at a cost of $1,000 (+gst) per session.

Our Men’s Health Talk Presenters are all men who are passionate about improving our attitudes towards health. We choose
Presenters who are friendly and relatable, and who are able to get these important messages across in an entertaining way. They come from a variety of backgrounds, and each has a personal health story that motivated them to get involved with the Men’s Health Trust.
