All set for Man’sCave

Tomorrow all roads lead to ZimParks Gardens, Mt Pleasant, for the second edition of the Man’s Cave, an interactive platform for men to relax, learn and network.

The event — organised by BoldAds — will feature seasoned motivational speakers and high-flying executives like Memory Nguwi, the managing consultant of Industrial Psychology Consultants, Dr Munyaradzi Mujuru, PSMAS’ lifestyle manager and serial entrepreneur Chamu Chiwanza.

Event spokesperson Chipo Mangwayana said they chose to host the event this month to celebrate Father’s Day belatedly. This also coincides with global commemorations for men’s health.

The “gentlemen only event” will run under the theme: “Man-to-man – Creating a better world for all,” she said.

“It will radically change lives and change the way men relate to and interact with business partners, family and particularly other men. It’s an opportunity to connect with other men from all backgrounds, ranks and different levels.

The Man’s Cave offers a safe, non-judgemental, supportive space where men can explore the connections, modalities, challenges and exercises that facilitate real and lasting change.”

Mangwayana said the tickets are already selling and Star FM’s DJ Mox “The Moxinator” will be the MC with a lot of programmes lined up.

She said there will also be dance groups, braai and a cash bar. “The event gives ample time to partake in the conversations, drop the mask and speak the truth, man-to-man.

“The intention is to create a safe and enjoyable weekend where men can be authentic, learn together and celebrate men’s month in style,” she said.

The Man’s Cave is supported by the Zimpapers Group titles — The Sunday Mail, Capitalk FM, The Herald and ZTN.

It is sponsored by clothing retailer, 4 May.
