A Self-Improvement Motivational Conference for The Modern Man.

MATC Conference

Kingston, Surrey

MATC is the acronym for Men, Anxiety and The Conversation. MATC was founded by Ryan Allen after he read disturbing reports around suicides involving the male demographic, simply because men were not sharing any inner challenges, which everyone goes through. So, with that in mind, he took action and began to plan for a regular event for men, who beat themselves up about life secretly.  Helping empower men to talk about mental health.

MATC Conference is not a business networking event, we are about Men, Anxiety and The Conversation, so it's about sharing life skills and practices as well as tangible ways men, can transform their lives and break free from anxiety. MATC is about social networking and real human connection beyond the superficial.

We invite Speakers from the UK or Internationally to give their time to be part of social change.  The event is a full day of speakers with standup comedy, music entertainment and a photography exhibition with industry photographer Fiona Freund called EYES WIDE OPEN. BREATHE AGAIN.

Sponsorship

How can I become a MATC sponsor?

Our partners matter to us and we know your support allows us to reach men and encourage social change, so men finally can start the conversation with friends, family or co-workers about their anxiety through the conferences and exhibitions we create.

There are many moving parts to the launch of the photography exhibition and the speakers' conference. We have prepared a simple and easy-to-read, pitch deck to summarise the sponsorship options, accompanied by market research, target markets,  ROI and future plans for the exhibition and conference that will be regular dual events each year in Kingston upon Thames, Surrey. 

 

Your support as an MATC partner will enable us to reach more men, so they can realise they are not alone and that seeking help is a wise step, not a weak one.  MATC  is looking to partner with companies that believe in equality and diversity, but also tackling the male suicide epidemic that continues to rise in London and the UK.  Please get in touch to view our two-pitch decks and together we can make a difference.

Omicron Variant

The UK Government have shared news of the recent spread of the new variant which continues to rise in London. Due to the spread of a new variant, we are pausing plans to launch the MATC  event until we are given the green light by the Prime Minister, that all gatherings are safe. We will share further updates here and also on Instagram.
