In March, Jeremy Forbes was the guest speaker at Men United, a men’s health event in Kyneton run by Tasting Fitness. The aim of the event was to bring together the men in the community to talk about health and wellbeing, including mental health, depression and suicide prevention.

I didn’t actually stay for all of the presentation as I wanted the men to feel comfortable without any women around, but the feedback from everyone was amazing. I was told that you could hear a pin drop when Jeremy started speaking, despite there being over 100 men in the room. Jeremy commanded their attention with his natural and unique way of communicating. He is a born leader, and a genuine man with a passion to make a difference.

There were several speakers at the event, however most of the feedback given said that Jeremy was an absolute stand-out and that people would pay money to hear him speak again. I was absolutely thrilled with the way he engaged such a diverse crowd of men, from young tradies, to middle-aged businessmen and retirees. Thank you Jeremy, I look forward to hearing you speak again at my next Tasting Fitness event.
