Most of us have seen “Gladiator” and perhaps at times imagined that we are Russell Crowe fighting off tigers, lions and Giants coming at us with maces and chains! But the truth is that every man is, in some ways, In The Arena. We all have battles to fight – maybe in the workplace, in our family life and certainly in the spiritual world.

In The Arena – is an event for men to consider not just the challenges of life’s battles – but the opportunities including:

  • You are tougher than you think you are

  • Keep on fighting on

  • Finishing the race

  • Coping with failure

  • The heart of success

  • A man and his family


Rob Parsons OBE  is the founding chairman of Care for the family and is the author of twenty books including “The Sixty Minute Father”, “The Money Secret”,  and “The Heart of Success”.  He has spoken to over a million people in live events across the world – including to many blue chip companies and governments.

Gerrit Bantjes was the fitness coach at Cardiff Rugby Club. As a former player himself he knows all about the physical challenges and psychological warfare involved in winning the game. At age forty he became paratrooper having passed one of the most grueling physical assessment courses in the world. For the past 15 years he has spoken to companies, hospitals and schools on the importance of a healthy lifestyle. A brilliant communicator!
