Menslink Business Breakfast
Now in its 10th year, the Menslink Business Breakfast is our annual fundraising event and draws nearly five hundred leaders from across Canberra to hear from inspiring speakers, network with other community-minded people, and support the great work of Menslink.
The Business Breakfast is held each year in September and is attended by executives from large and small businesses, government, sports, education and the community sector. Both Federal and Territory politicians from all major parties also attend to show their support for Menslink and the young men in our community.

Lieutenant General David Morrison AO
The 2015 breakfast featured keynote speaker Lieutenant General David Morrison AO (Ret’d), former Chief of Army. He and Menslink CEO Martin Fisk talked about the need for better role models for young men so that they can avoid the potential pitfalls of violence, drugs and alcohol, self-harm and suicide.
The breakfast was covered extensively in the media, including an article and editorial in the Canberra Times.
Principal sponsors included: ACT Policing, Icon Water, Capital Chemist and the Snow Foundation. They joined major supporters: ACT Rugby Veterans, Bendigo Bank, Brumbies Rugby, Canberra Raiders, NCDI, Proximity Legal and PWC, plus a host of other supporters – all of whom made the event a tremendous success.
