What does it mean to be a man today? Are terms like ‘man up’ or ‘be a man’ relevant for guys moving forward? How is being a man today harder or easier than being a man in the past?
Esquire Singapore’s EIC Norman Tan will be spearheading the conversation to dissect the intricacies of masculinity and the modern-day man with a two-part Esquire Talks series that is happening at our inaugural Esquire Shophouse on the 4-5 August.
The first part of Esquire Talks delves deep into hard-hitting topics from men and addiction, toxic stereotypes to suicide. The panel, hosted by EIC Norman Tan will be joined by Ben Hopkins, founder of BioOnics, Calvin Soh, founder of One Kind House, Terence Quek, CEO of Emergenetics APAC and Angela Ng, Managing Director of ANtrepod.
EIC Norman Tan and Ben Hopkins will wrap up with the second part of Esquire Talks with Paul Loiz, global brand director at Unilever; Lavinia Thanapathy, Vice President of SCWO, and Dylan Soh, 16-year-old son of Calvin Soh, from part one of the panel to touch on fragile masculinity, and the role it plays in media and advertising.
