“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 1500+ hours developing it. What does the title mean?
Cecil’s Men’s Hub ~ The Virtual Men’s Gathering
Cecil’s is an acronym (Committed to Educate 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 Gathering or Men’s Group locally to them.
Push 4 Men Challenge and The Push-Up Challenge
I have joined these two great initiatives to prevent heart disease in men, and raise awareness of Mental Health.
The Push-Up Challenge is a unique way to engage people in mental health. Runs over 25 days in June (1st – 25th) 3,318 push-ups in total, representing the number of people who died by suicide in Australia in 2019
Push4Men is a 10-day challenge that promotes the importance of staying strong to prevent men’s heart disease. People who join Push4Men will be attempting to complete 40 push-ups a day for 10 consecutive days.
with love & respect, Cecil

A Men’s Gathering, there are currently 20 per year in Australia, is where most of all you can connect with other men, from all backgrounds, religions, 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 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 that 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’.
