The Men’s Room

WHO WE ARE

They say ‘it’s a man’s world’ but how equipped are the men to run it effectively?

The changing times have seen vibrant platforms educating and empowering women and children, which is very noble, but also indicates an imbalance as the men folk also need to unlearn and re-learn so as to position him to the many dynamics of today’s world.

The MEN’S ROOM PROJECT is centered on equipping today’s man. Its main objective is to make him a more effective person to himself, family, industry and society, hence from the bedroom to the boardroom.

It is the much needed platform for healthy and honest discussions with relevant resource persons on a range of topical issues he can relate to and learn from.

The MEN’S ROOM PROJECT is phased in 4 parts; The Men’s Room Radio show, The Men’s Room Forum, The Men’s Room Television show, The Men’s Room Reach Out
