Take Your Leadership Skills to The Next Level
Learn to hold your boundaries while inspiring confidence in others. Going from might makes right to leading the way from a place of purpose and clarity.
Connect with Other Authentic Men
Instead of working to impress one another with status, wealth, or conquests, learn how to create a space that enables men to show up as their true selves and which facilitates deep connections.
Cultivate a Community of Belonging and Acceptance
No more shifting from circle to circle, wondering when you’ll feel accepted for who you truly are. You’ll learn to build your own communities where mutual respect, trust and acceptance are the gold standard.
But don't take our word for it. See what others have said!
"I'd learnt a facilitator was supposed to put on a brave face in order to lead. But the MenSpeak trainers didn't do that. They were open and vulnerable, and shared what was going on for them. Even if it was difficult emotionally. And they were present with it and owned it. This showed me a whole new level of authenticity I hadn't experienced in terms of facilitation. And showed me that the group really does practise what it preaches."
"Juicy, authentic, rich with the meaningful kind of learning that really adds immense value to this work. Even though I’ve got 4 years of experience running men’s groups, Kenny brings so much to the table I left with that wonderful state of beginner’s mind. The day was a powerful reframe of what our responsibility is as a facilitator, and only someone who’s done the hard work themselves, and forged their own unique method can offer a day’s training like this."
"I learnt the theory, the practice and the integrity of how to hold men's groups and I'm finding it incredibly helpful in my work with men. I felt so welcomed in this space by Kenny and the other participants. I enjoyed it greatly and feel honoured to have completed it."

There’s a world of connection and authenticity waiting for you and your clients.
So what are you waiting for?
Transform your life from from loneliness to connection; from isolation to community; from mental, emotional or whatever other issues you might have to good company from which you can learn and grow.
No More Isolation, Disconnectedness, or Being a Pushover
Just one Simple Course
Imagine being able to be met by the men around you at depth and being able to lead and communicate with ease and authenticity.
Imagine approaching real issues that men have and knowing how to transmute these shadows into gold.
And imagine going from pretending to be someone you’re not, to owning yourself and feeling authentic in both casual and professional settings.
It may sound crazy, but men’s group facilitation is the key to bringing all this and more into your life.
Here’s the secret: To become the most authentic version of yourself and bring out the best in other men, all you need to do is let go of who you THINK you need to be… so that you can make space for the authentic man in you to fully show up. That’s the hidden key that attracts the life you were born to live and inspires those around you.
But the only issue is…
Right now you may be feeling overwhelmed and suffering from disconnection at home, at work and with friends. Maybe you’re feeling alone, separated from your community and like you have no one to turn to.
From what I’ve seen, you may be overwhelmed by the amount of effort that you’ve been putting in and underwhelmed by the returns. You may be at a breaking point from the pressure of a lifestyle that you’ve been told to have but which may not be meant for you.
If you’re not getting the depth of transformation and satisfaction from life that you want. Or if you feel like you’re lacking something, whether that’s meaning or purpose, and everything feels pointless and out of control…
What’s really missing is depth and realness. And to enable this authenticity, you have to first discover your own being, your true self, and then learn how to bring it out in others
I’ve been working with Men for over 20 years and, the way I see it, the main problem is that you have already done so much work to meet the expectations of those around you. You’ve been told all your life by your family, your friends, your education that you SHOULD be this or that.
You SHOULD find a stable office job.
You SHOULD put in the hours to get that promotion.
You SHOULD work to get more out of your career and give more for your family.
You SHOULD perform at 110% all of the time.
We are taught to be good performers, providers and protectors.
But where is the space for us?
If you’re here, it’s because you’ve realised that the models given to us by our society and culture don’t work anymore. You’re here because you know that there is a problem, but the solution isn’t necessarily clear.
How do you find purpose?
How do you forge connections with those around you?
How do you learn to lead not through coercion and power, but through example and inspiration?
Can you do all this while keeping yourself and your family afloat?
What if I told you: “Yes, you can.”
There is a way to discover yourself. to test new means of being, new modes of existence with others and get INSTANT FEEDBACK.
There is a way to discover your purpose. To expose yourself to different lifestyles and ideas on a continuous basis and to delve deep into them to see if they are for you.
There is a way to invite others into your life and to take those relationships as far as they can naturally go. Without coercion, without bribes, without pretending to be someone else for approval.
And there is a way to do all this while also creating an abundance of opportunity for collaborations of every nature, from financial to artistic and everything in between.
Once you understand how to create safe spaces, how to elicit the best from others, and how to mediate group dynamics, you will find that there’s an entire world of connection, rich emotions, freedom and raw vulnerability with other men just waiting for you.
All you need are the keys to unlock it!
And that’s why I’ve created MenFacilitate. After over 2 decades of organising Men’s Groups and getting men to show up as their real selves, I’ve deciphered the key principles and techniques that you need to know to create, structure and hold your own Men’s Groups. My vision is to live in a world where men are empowered to speak their truth, to share their feelings, and to be accepted as who they are.
I can’t promise that there won’t be road-blocks, or that you won’t stumble, and - hell - I can’t promise that you’ll get it right on the first go. But I can promise that you will step away from this course with more purpose and clarity in yourself and what you need to do to get other men to show up, be present and connect. You’ll be able to trust in yourself to get the most out of everyone and to inspire others to take their self-expression to the next level.
By the end of this course, not only will you belong to a community of men working towards empowering others, but you’ll be able to bring out authenticity and depth in yourself as well as those around you, and navigate the male psyche. You’ll have the knowledge and confidence to handle the darkest parts of other men, and you will become adept at creating and developing conscious sharing circles for men.
We’re going through a CULTURAL REVOLUTION. Men from all over the world are realising that the model given to us by our society and culture DOES NOT WORK. And they’re looking for an answer. Already thousands of these men from all over the globe are joining and starting their own men’s groups to find their calling. They’re taking the initiative and putting themselves out there to see what’s out there, and I don’t want to see you being left behind.

"The difference in my life now is like night and day. I’m a lot more confident in my ability to hold space for different people in different settings. I can shift through my own traumas and shadows faster, and I’m better able to name emotions or things that are upsetting me rather than personalising my feelings onto others."
"It has been a privilege to learn from Kenny a it is obvious that he has a wealth of experience. The training helped me develop the necessary skills to be a confident facilitator and allowed me to gain the tools and techniques to facilitate. I have used the skills I learnt to run a Woman's circle and it has also helped to this day when facilitating workshops or in my work as a coach."
"Learning to facilitate men's groups has changed how I interact with the people around me. I'm no longer afraid of showing up as I am in the moment. I share my fears, fantasies and desires with those around me as they come up, and my connections with others have become richer, deeper and more authentic for it. The training has also had resonating impacts on my work with clients and activists."
There’s a world of connection and authenticity waiting for you, not just with other men, but also yourself.
So what are you waiting for?
Transform your life from from loneliness to connection; from isolation to community; from mental, emotional or whatever other issues you might have to good company from which you can learn and grow.
My Personal Transformation
Fleeing death threats in Uganda when I was a child, I arrived in the UK only to face refugee camps, paternal abandonment, maternal enmeshment, and mental health issues. It marked me.
I did anything that I could to distract myself from the pain and emptiness inside of me. I became a high-flying adrenaline junkie: Tight deadlines, extreme sports, and anything else that would keep me high. I got into marketing and even made a name for myself in the music business, touring and doing work with some of the big names.
But despite all this, I still felt that there was something missing, and I departed to see the world and discover my place in it. When I got back, I realised that I missed my old friends, more when I was with them, than when I was away. I needed to be met at greater depth and I decided to invite them to my very first men’s group.
I didn’t know what a men’s group was at the time, I had never even been to one myself, but I did know that I needed to be met, and I needed to forge more meaning and connection with the men who were ‘my crew’. I discovered that so many men don’t have friends and don’t even know how to be with one another, and even the more popular blokes felt un-met, with few people truly knowing who they are. All these men want is to hang out in a community with other men that bring out the best in them.
Since then and for the past 20+ years, I’ve been holding men’s groups. I’ve taught male and female therapists, counsellors, coaches and organisational psychologists how to hold men’s groups so that people can take this practice into their own communities and use these tools both professionally and personally to engage with men.
I’m not saying that you need to have gone through the same long drawn out, helplessly lonely and painful things that I’ve had to learn the lessons that I’ve learnt. I’m inviting you to ‘stand on the shoulders of giants’ and draw from the positive and negative experiences of other men via men’s groups as a tool to get to know others - as well as yourself - so much better.
I discovered that it’s not about learning to do things right, but rather about unlearning what’s no longer true, so you can simply be you.
I met the shadows that I was fleeing from: past dramas and traumas, future fears and fantasies; and I learnt how to allow life to court me and bring me the opportunities and coincidences that would turn things around way beyond anything I could think of, do, or plan. My thinking is limited to my experience and my need is to live beyond what I’ve always had – as safely and supported as possible.
Here’s How It Works:
To make sure that you're getting bang for your buck, I've designed the online course to cover a variety of subjects and to drip-feed you new content at a manageable pace.
Every week, you’ll automatically unlock access to a new module on our private membership website where experienced facilitators and I will breakdown in depth how the ideas, frameworks and lessons that we’ve learnt and developed come together to bring these concepts alive.
We’ll also host live lectures once a week demonstrating and testing the principles and ideas that were shared during the training videos with Q&A.
Then, a series of reflection and practice videos are designed to give you the tools to develop these concepts on your own.
In addition to all this, once you've completed the training, you’ll have access to official MenSpeak after-group debriefs with me and other experienced facilitators. This will be the start of your own learning and community as you meet, connect, and share with other men who are sharing this journey with you.
Alongside the course, you’ll also get access to a bunch of bonus content that will take you through some niche knowledge, hints and tips, and how-tos.

A Course That Has Helped Thousands Of People
"The most important thing that people should know about consulting with Kenny is to expect the unexpected. Be prepared for your dreams coming true. That's the scariest part! There's nothing to fix and life is quite effortless. There's a big wow with that, that it's possible and it's happening."
"The groups have been very much what I was looking for in terms of finding a space where I could be with men who wanted to learn more about themselves and other men. In every group, I have been moved by the high levels of sharing, acceptance, trust and valuing of diversity (in terms of race, sexuality and personality) of the men in the group."
"I found MenSpeak at a time in my life where I was very disconnected from my emotions and ability to feel. I was going through life with a protective side of me in control, not letting others in and not expressing myself or my vulnerabilities. [The training] has led to my partner and I rebuilding strong foundations for our relationship, and a reputation for being authentic and reliable at work.

As a graduate of the MenFacilitate Programme, you'll be invited to attend facilitator debriefs after professionally facilitated MenSpeak men’s groups.

ABOUT YOUR INSTRUCTOR -
KENNY MAMMARELLA D'CRUZ
People often meet me at a crossroads in their lives. At a loss, or in emotional crisis lacking adequate tools, community or awareness to ‘deal with it like a man’. Either that, or they’re a success story and even though everything is crossed off their to-have lists, something deeper is stirring inside that needs to come alive.
I’ve been holding men’s groups for the past 20+ years and I’ve held my first for my own needs, because I wanted to meet my own friends at a greater depth after being adventuring for 5 years.
I’ve trained people from all walks of life, from therapists and coaches to the ordinary man on the street who just wants to create a space for him and his friends to hang-out, be heard and get real. I’ve discovered that most men don’t have true friends, and even the more popular men feel un-met, with few people truly knowing who they are. These men just want to meet a community that brings out the best in them.
My vision is to teach the skills and tools that I’ve spent decades learning across the globe so that people can take this practice into every community and use these tools to engage with men.JOIN THE 7-WEEK COURSE NOW
FREQUENTY ASKED QUESTIONS
1. What is a men’s group and what makes MenSpeak men’s groups so special?
2. Why should I hold my own men’s groups?
3. This all sounds quite serious. Can I still have fun as the Facilitator?
4. Can I really find connection, grow myself as an authentic leader, cultivate community, change the world, AND make some money? ALL AT THE SAME TIME?
I’ve Done The Work, So You Don’t Have To!
Something that I’ve learnt over the past 30 years is that you don’t need to BE anything other than WHO YOU REALLY ARE to make your men’s groups a smashing success.
All you need are the tools of the trade so you can encourage others to show up authentically, speak their truth, and connect authentically with one another.
This programme will give you everything you need to set out on your own, build your own communities and develop your leadership skills.
If you’re someone who values a holistic and sustainable approach, who appreciates deep connections with others, who wants to better hold a safe, clean space with clear boundaries, who wants find meaning while being able to support themselves, NOW IS YOUR CHANCE!
I’ve been doing this for 30+ years, constantly testing new ideas, taking part in other groups and trainings and consistently delivering life changing results. Seize this opportunity to get access to me and my team LIVE, to take action to shape your life, to take the first step towards authenticity and connection. and to allow it to give you the purpose and direction that you need for the next phase of your life.
This Is Not For Tourists. This Shift Brings Sustainable Change and It Is For Good!
Ultimately, what this is all about is transformation. Yes, I give you the tools. Yes, I give you the knowledge. Yes, I give you the community. But what this really does is serve to connect you with yourself and others in a way like never before.
When you are living your truth and helping others live theirs, things will show up to support you in ways you could never expect. You could meet business partners, life companions, friends and collaborators through your groups and attendees. As your life opens up and you begin to experience the richness and splendor of it all, even more opportunities will show up at your door.
I’ll say it again, this isn’t a quick fix. This is here to last. Once you know, you can’t unknow. Once you’re aware, you can’t undo awareness. There is no off switch to this light bulb! (…not even a dimmer).
Get a real and lasting change in your life this year. No more living in isolation. No more feeling disconnected. No more being a pushover to the values and needs of others.
See you soon - be well,
Kenny Mammarella D-Cruz
