Soho Speaks Out

In celebration of International Men’s Day, we hosted the Soho Speaks Out panel discussion, bringing together some of Soho’s leading influential and inspirational men. In support of Soho-based charity Samaritans, the panel addressed the International Men’s Day themes; “Making a difference for Men and Boys” and “How can we give Men and Boys better life chances”.
The credible event was held at the Chapel at social enterprise members’ club The House of St Barnabas, in the heart of Soho and was hosted by Annie Clarke and Will Clempner, founders of social platform Can We Just Ask.

On the panel were; iconic Soho tailor Mark Powell, who spoke about the barriers and benefits he faces as a man working in the fashion industry; Footpatrol Area Manager, Jimmy Horrocks, who broached the subject of commitment and success; Kricket Head Chef and Co-Founder, Will Bowlby, who addressed the importance of mental health in the hospitality sector; Samaritans’ Listening Volunteer, James Spackman, who discussed the charity’s vital emotional support work and Programme and Employment Manager for The House of St Barnabas, Brian Beaton, who spoke passionately about career opportunities for men and boys.

We executed a strategic PR and digital campaign including media partnerships with London-centric publications Time Out and London on the Inside.
