A Self-Improvement Motivational Conference for
The Modern Man
MATC is the acronym for Men, Anxiety and The Conversation, founded by Ryan Allen after he read disturbing reports around suicides involving the male demographic, simply because men were not sharing any inner challenges, which everyone goes through. So, with that in mind, he took action and began to plan a regular event for men to learn how to improve their lives and manage their anxiety and ultimately break free from it and live again with purpose and direction.
MATC Conference curate and invite 17 Speakers to share their life lessons in front of a live audience and online through our live streaming. Our events include a line-up of Standup comedians and music as part of the conference, with our own dedicated London photography exhibition about Men, called Breathe Again, in partnership with Industry Photographer, Fiona Freund, founder of WeAreMoi.

MATC MEETUP MONTHLY
MATC Conference is all about like-minded people sharing life stories and experiences around anxiety and how to combat it. We plan to have monthly meetups, which will also be an opportunity to network with the conference team and learn how to become a speaker. Our meetup events will also be online to cater for those who are unable to physically attend due to living overseas.
*Please Note: MATC will maintain social distancing and encourage new members to follow individual venue guidelines and UK Government policy, if and when they change.
The Official MATC Conference Website
Launches October 2021.
MATC Conference Photography Exhibitions will evolve each year to open the conversation around men and anxiety that can lead to suicides if society is not more open to the conversation rather than awareness alone. People are now more aware but that's not solving the greater challenge, men are staying silent for societal and historic pressures. Our exhibitions open the visual dialogue for our audience to consider making the next step to having the verbal conversation.
