Communication workshop

Vincent Men’s Shed welcomed Owen Catto from the Regional Men’s Health Initiative.  There was some pretty alarming statistics presented regarding men’s health outcomes compared with women’s health outcomes which made us sit up and take notice.  However the main topic was “Communications” and Owen described, in a good humoured manner the differences between the way the male and female brains and communicating styles operate, illustrated by some amusing videos and slides.  It kept everyone interested and sometimes squirming in their seats as they recognized their own behaviors being described.  A great presentation and Owen joined us for a sausage sizzle afterwards.
