Specialisms: Modern Masculinity, Empathy

Chris is a journalist and author of ‘Be a Man – How macho culture damages us and how to escape it’. Chris has written on the topic of masculinity for numerous national newspapers, made films for the BBC and now speaks in schools, universities and workplaces to promote a healthier idea of what it means to be a man. 


Chris believes too many young boys are still being socialised to believe empathy and compassion are ‘feminine’ traits, and allow themselves to swayed by the belligerence of men attempting to prove their dominance. 

Chris is proud to be a Director of the Speakers Collective.
