“Where Men take charge of their own lives, through the Role Models & Support of other great Men”
What is the site about, and why did I create it, and have spent over 10,000+ hours developing it. What does the title mean?
Cecil’s Men’s Hub ~ The Virtual Men’s Gathering the Meaning
Cecil’s is an acronym (Committed to Empower the Community to Improve Lives) the site has been developed through my wish to give back to Men’s Work. To provide all Men, throughout Australia and the World the potential to connect with other Men, either through a Men’s Work Event, Men’s Health Event, Men’s Gathering or Men’s Group locally to them.
Cecil’s Men’s Hub ~ Worldwide Men’s Coach Directory is Live
What is the purpose of this Worldwide Men’s Coach Directory?
The purpose of this directory is to help men Worldwide find and connect with a Coach to help them move from where they are to where they want to be. To do this they need a Coach regardless of gender who has unique skills & wisdom in any one of over 200+ modalities of expertise.
The Directory is OPEN to all Coaches regardless of gender. If the Coach has an affinity with helping Men and can help them grow, to become the best that they can be for themselves, their loved ones and their communities, then you are welcome.
This service will always be FREE for all men to search to find and connect with a Coach near their location.

Cecil’s Men’s Hub ~ Worldwide Men’s Groups Directory
Did you know that my Cecil’s Men’s Hub ~ Worldwide Men’s Groups Directory is ready and available, please visit to see how this platform can help change Men’s lives and connect them to Men’s Groups regularly.
The Directory (over 450 Men’s Groups already) will initially cover Australia with Groups from London, the UK, Ireland, Canada, Singapore, Austria, and North America.
* Some of the Groups are under a ‘Claims Listing‘, this will enable existing Men’s Groups that find their Group to ‘Claim‘ it as their own as a ‘FREE ‘ Basic Group or upgrade to a ‘Paid‘ Plan & gain extra benefits/features.
The Directory will allow Men to search for their nearest Men’s Group to their location FREE of charge!
It will enable any existing Men’s Groups Worldwide to register a FREE to join and get a ‘Basic’ listing, they get listed in seconds, which will give them a low priority ‘GoogleMaps ® Pin‘ search result, and this will be under 1 particular Association.
The full plans start at $99 Per Year per Group or $10 monthly, this will enable you to add many types of content to reach more Men.
Some Men when searching for a Men’s Group, have heard of a particular Men’s Group type or Association. It’s for this reason that I have created Categories for each of the common associations to be used in the Search Bar, this will ‘Auto-Fill’ as the user types.
Currently, there are 14 Associations that each Men’s Group can be listed under, depending on the style of facilitation/origin that they follow.

Cecil’s Men’s Hub ~ The Virtual Men’s Gathering, helping you to connect with a Men’s Gathering and Men’s Work
A Men’s Gathering, there are currently 17 per year in Australia, is where most of all you can connect with other men, from all backgrounds, religions, and political and sexual persuasions. These gatherings offer a safe, non-judgmental, supportive space where men can explore the connections, modalities, challenges and exercises that facilitate real and lasting change. They all offer high-quality workshops, you are free to take part in as many or as few as you wish.
This is your time, to use as you wish but hey, why not take advantage of them?
A Men’s Group is where you can connect with other Men who are based locally, on a more regular basis rather than waiting for the next Men’s Gathering to continue your journey. As a result, your journey will be quicker. These are all facilitated by experienced Men that are trained in facilitating a group of Men. Training enables them to have a conversation with other Men without judgment. To sit in a group with other Men, and speak your truth. You may not come away with any answers but most issues always seem more manageable after ‘sharing’.
