Testimonials

Arman was a pleasure to work with and made a significant contribution to our event. He worked to the briefing we provided him and was a positive addition to our line-up of speakers.  Arman always provides a great call to action for men who want to do more to promote gender equality and help tackle the problem of violence against women.

Arman is an excellent communicator.  He has a wonderful innate ability to connect with a teen audience.  A brave, honest , powerful presentation that gave students tools to recognise family/domestic violence.  Our students now feel like they can create change and strive for a respectful world.

Amazing man who touched everyone in some way.
Day Surgery Nurses Association

The session with Arman was fantastic.  Everyone who I have talked to has only positive things to say about the powerful insight provided into domestic violence.  Afterwards, the staff asked a number of questions and Arman was brave enough to provide comprehensive and personal answers on this difficult subject. This session was very worthwhile for our staff to increase their awareness on domestic violence.

Beautifully balanced speaking style. Combined personal reflection in an empathetic manner with really sound, constructive advice. Able to keep the audience engaged. Able to mix subtle humour throughout his presentation. Very professional demeanour and we appreciate the reduced fee that was charged due to us being a NFP.
