  With a radio career spanning the best part of two decades, Nige Johnson is no stranger to speaking to the masses.  Nige was one half of one of Canberra’s most successful radio duo’s who consistently topped ratings with their morning drive slot.

How many scientists do you know that have their own radio show? We can only think of one, Mr Adam Shirley. Adam spent much of his early days on the shores of Corio Bay in Geelong, nestled amongst the endless vistas of oil refineries and wood chipping mills. Adam moved to Canberra in 2012 and has yet to find the exit. Born in England, Adam is a cricket tragic who has previously packed trucks, prepared food and pulled the odd hotel night shift for a crust. He is a scientist by trade, has entertained kids of all ages at Questacon and still embraces his inner nerd. Midweekers are available to women and men of all ages who want to come and listen to inspiring stories from our local men, as well as to understand some of the key issues facing young guys in our region.

This Midweeker will be held in loving memory of the ever resplendent Rhys Summergreene. Rhys Summergreene sadly lost his battle with Stage 4 Cancer in January, Menslink wanted to take the the opportunity to honour and remember him and his contribution to our organisation on the date he was supposed to deliver his own Midweeker. Rhys was a respected and loved Businessman from Peter Blackshaw Real Estate. He was a local Canberra man who dusted himself off after a business relationship fell apart, only to learn shortly after that he had a highly aggressive form of Cancer. Rhys was known for his philanthropy, fundraising and long standing, distinguished career in property. He found great reward working with ‘A Cure for Freyja’, The Cancer Council, Red Cross, Menslink and many other foundations, all whilst fighting his own illness. Rhys injected his own brand of humour when telling his story and he employed his own unique strategies to overcome depression in its many forms. Come hear Rhys’ story, as written by him and told by those who loved him most. Midweekers are available to women and men of all ages who want to come and listen to inspiring stories from our local men, as well as to understand some of the key issues facing young guys in our region.

Menslink Midweeker with Ben Henderson

May 22 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
Gryphons Caffe & Bar, 16 Barker Street
Griffith, ACT 2603 Australia

Ben Henderson probably never imagined that a mosquito would be the cause of his toughest battle. That an insect would threaten his mountain biking career and leave him bed ridden, unable to do anything on his own. Ben Henderson was riding for a spot at the 2012 London Olympics when a mosquito bite quickly halted his riding career. While racing on Malaysian island Langkawi in 2011, Ben was bitten more than 50 times and contracted the Chikungunya virus and Epstein-Barr virus. The rare disease left this elite athlete bed ridden for six months and Ben battled chronic fatigue for a further two years before being able to ride competitively again. Ben’s attitude of 'whatever doesn't kill you makes you stronger' has seen him go on to run a half marathon. Midweekers are available to women and men of all ages who want to come and listen to inspiring stories from our local men, as well as to understand some of the key issues facing young guys in our region.

Shane grew up in Sydney's Mount Druitt as one of six children in a family troubled by drugs, alcohol and violence. He dropped out of school at just 15 years old, later taking a job with Australia Post. Shane eventually found a pathway into tertiary study and he went on to complete not one but three university degrees. Shane Drumgold was appointed the ACT Director of Public Prosecutions in December 2018, a job his 15 year old self would probably never have imagined possible! Shane's story is one of resilience and hard work, really embodying the Menslink message of 'Everything Is Possible'. https://www.canberratimes.com.au/national/act/shane-drumgold-announced-as-new-act-dpp-20181211-p50lf4.html Midweekers are available to women and men of all ages who want to come and listen to inspiring stories from our local men, as well as to understand some of the key issues facing young guys in our region.

If you’ve heard David on breakfast radio or SBS world news, you would get the sense that this man is articulate, intelligent, humorous and professional. David has struggled with his mental health about a decade now, using different vices to try to cure his inner pain. David is quoted as saying “Too often it is overlooked and ignored. Depression isn’t just feeling sad or a little blue. It's an illness and the end result can be fatal.” David first publicly spoke about his battle with depression in 2018 in the hope of encouraging other people to speak out about their mental health issues and help end the stigma. David will be speaking on the eve of 'R U OK? Day' and 12 months on from when he first spoke publicly about his experiences. https://www.canberratimes.com.au/national/act/david-sharaz-reveals-personal-battles-as-he-urges-others-to-ask-ru-ok-20180906-p5024c.html Midweekers are available to women and men of all ages who want to come and listen to inspiring stories from our local men, as well as to understand some of the key issues facing young guys in our region.
