“If it wasn’t for events like this for men that Mike is creating, I’d be dead. Simple.” – Nick Bowditch, Keynote Sydney 2017

This is an Event for…

Men tired of the status quo, searching for more in life;
More Drive, more Meaning, more Purpose.

“MY LIFE’S OK, COULD BE BETTER.”

Maybe that’s you. On the whole, life’s going well. But nagging at the back of your mind, you know you could be experiencing more.

More fulfilment. Deeper connections. Better relationships. Broader experiences.

 

With a group of gents who’ve ‘been there, done that’ we’ll to explore how you can have those things.

This is an event for men who want to experience the next level in their life and meet other like-minded men.

However, unlike other events where it’s all serious talk, this event will be a little different.

They’ll be the opportunity to experience cool shit. Like cutting edge VR, then drinking craft beer and drams of fine whisky, and also learning about managing your finances more effectively, plus some mindfulness and meditation.

As men we love tech and good alcohol, so this event is going to bring those cool things together, whilst examining how to become the best version of yourself.

 

At the end of the day, you’ll walk out with a greater sense of clarity and purpose in your life and make a bunch of connections with other cool men who are on a similar path as you.

Expect to leave feeling lighter, with a weight off your shoulders – the outdated expectations of manhood, the self-imposed pressure of having to solve everything yourself, armed with new tools to be your best authentic self.

If you want to come, best be quick, seats are very limited.

 

If you’re ready to question the status quo, to stretch yourself and grow, register now as these events have limited capacity and will sell out.

Watch The Show

“Empowering men to own their shit! 

I recommend this event to anyone who knows they’ve got more to give I life. You’ve got direction, possibly, maybe not. Whatever it is for you, come to the event and share yourself and learn from others.

It was a bloody pleasure to speak at and be a part of.

What people are saying about ‘Beyond The Beers – The EVENT 2016’

“10/10, it was inspirational. High quality speakers. I got a lot out of it. I connected more deeply with men and I’m craving more of this, I’m so inspired! I wish there was more of this.”

– Patrick Gregson

“Beyond expectations. Blown away by the quality of the speakers. The guys resonated with it; a lot of stuff we think about, but maybe don’t talk about with our mates.”

– Josh Masters
