Theme for April 9 event: School of Greatness:

What is the dream within you?
What untapped or unfulfilled potential is still waiting to be awoken within you? What is the vision you have for your life?
How does that vision positively impact the world around you?
How to achieve greatness in all areas of your life: relationships, business and self.


“I attended ManTalks and was struck by the strength and depth of the community. As someone who purposefully builds communities, it is rare to see a gathering have such a raw impact on its participants. Goosebumps, tears and surges of inner meaning. You will see it when you attend and experience the benefit firsthand.” – Jordan Kallman | President TEDx Vancouver & Co-Founder of Social Concierge.
