Here was a note we received last year from a conference attendee "I found all the sessions I was able to take in very informative, professional and moderated well. I look forward to coming back next year" 
Clint is one of our speakers this year. We are going to have an amazing few evenings!
When it comes to men and mental health there is still a huge stigma around it. We tend to think of it as a "somebody else" problem. The truth is that statistically there are more of us that struggle on some level than there are that don't. This is exactly why we created Love Letter to Men, a virtual forum to talk about all the things that impact men's mental and emotional fitness. Our speaker lineup is fantastic and there will be lots of opportunities to network both virtually and in person. I hope you will consider joining us.
You know that music is a big part of our lives. The emotional impact and connection music can create is powerful. We are excited that Jenesia will join us again for Love Letter to Men to kick off our conference on Wednesday evening at 6pm Mountain Time. If you have not yet registered for this free conference, what are you waiting for??

It struck me that I have been putting together resources on sales, leadership, personal development and men's mental health for almost 20 years. I have been publishing many of those on my website for over a decade.

In my quest to provide new content I realize that many of the existing resources get buried. I have the team trying to re-organize and make items more accessible. We have created a page dedicated to some of the most popular video resources I have on the site. I would love to hear your feedback on what you might find valuable moving forward.
I have been speaking professionally for over 25 years. The first two decades were primarily focused on sales and leadership. In 2015 my girlfriend was murdered by an ex-boyfriend who subsequently took his own life. When I looked at what gifts I had that might help prevent this from happening to someone else, I realized that my skill in this arena could be helpful. 

I began applying what I have learned to help create environments where men could find the courage to explore their relationship with themselves. Where men felt safe looking  at their own mental well-being and providing them tangible tools to master their emotional fitness. 

If you or your organization is in need of a keynote speaker who shares research-backed  strategies based on lived experiences I may just be your guy. I speak on the topics of men's mental health, how men can show up as allies, and how to effectively lead from a lens of compassion and empathy.
Navigating masculinity in todays environment can be incredibly challenging. There are very few spaces for men to gather with intention to unpack the daily challenges they are facing. This lack of space to gather and feel safe to explore what is going on in our lives contributes to men's mental health crises . 

This crisis became front and center for me in 2015 when my girlfriend was murdered by an ex-boyfriend. I had a choice. I could bury my head in grief or  find a way to effect  change. I chose the latter and created Connect'd Men,  a group for men to get together and practice emotional mastery and heal.
Love Letter to Men 2023 is happening! Our goal is to bring together a variety of information while creating an environment for all of us to share our stories. We have reached out to experts in the field as well as those with lived experience willing to share their stories and the lessons they have learned.

We have put together this forum in a very short time frame so please come back often and check out our sessions as we continue to diversify the content. We would greatly appreciate you sharing this event with friends, family, colleagues and all your social media fans.
