Awareness talks

Orchid Male Cancer Information Nurse Specialists Rob and Katherine regularly travel around the country providing male cancer awareness sessions to companies the community and workplace.


We would be pleased to try and provide speakers for awareness days, information or training sessions subject to availability.  We can talk on an individual cancer or all three using power point presentation Q&A sessions and interactive learning.

Our portable information stands, posters, information materials and DVD have also proven popular and can be used in your foyer, rest area, canteen during lunch hours, health promotion events etc.

Please contact us to discuss your requirements by e-mailing or calling 0203 7457318


The chap really knew his stuff but he delivered the information clearly


He didn’t act like a doom monger but very matter of fact and reassuring but did incorporate some gentle humour which took the edge off things.


The delivery wasn’t too highbrow nor patronising/dumbed down/condescending



Very informative and useful.


Both very good. I think men tend to get easily embarrassed about that particular subject and I thought the presenter was very matter of fact and understated. Perfect!


Good, there was lots of information. The guy added some humour to the subject which made everyone feel relaxed.

Thank you so much for taking the time to come to Nottingham to raise awareness regarding male cancer. It is much appreciated, and hopefully the awareness raised will save lives.




I sincerely would like to thank you for attending both site and office and give two presentations. The workforce have really liked the presentations.






Thank you so much for coming to Kimbolton School last Friday as part of our Health Awareness Week. The year 13 students were very positive in their feedback about the presentation and it has certainly provoked some thought amongst them.

I’ve already had some good feedback from colleagues who attended telling people how good it was.One of my colleagues who hadn’t attended was told by someone who had that it was very good.  Quite a surprise because he’s renowned for being less than positive.

Just a quick note to say a huge THANK YOU for all your hard work today. The boys found the sessions extremely informative and you have made a huge impact on their awareness of testicular health and have really helped to break down this taboo issue.



Indeed, there was very positive feedback and food for thought following your excellent presentation to both staff and beneficiaries.







Thank you so much for your talk last night. The feed back from the parents was very positive with 3 families commenting “ Found the presentations very interesting” and “ My son enjoyed it and found it very interesting” and “ very good evening”.





Informative, excellent and explained in layman’s terms




 Easy to follow and understand, very informative




                                  Should be an annual thing for every employee




                                     Many thanks. Wonderful presentation and very easy to understand





                     Really good event, very informative





Rob had a lovely nature made it down to earth and not embarrassing











He was very articulate in front of an audience of all women. He explained things very clearly using everyday language and put everyone at ease.




Coming from a Caribbean background it has made me aware of the risk factor











Many thanks for coming to the vielife offices on Wednesday; it was great to have so many people attend your presentation which was very informative. It’s not an easy topic to present and I thought you did an excellent job at pitching it at the right level.









Simple clear information





Very well led day thanks!





 Thanks for coming across to Thatcham and giving the presentation. I have only had very positive feedback from your presentation.












Very many thanks for taking the time to present to the Nurses’ Forum – I received excellent feedback about your session on both the quality of the presentation and its value. We were all pleased that you were able to cover the three male cancers in the time frame; the nurses felt that their existing knowledge had been significantly enhanced.




I thought it was great and you delivered it very well and I have learnt quite a lot from you. The men have commented how interesting they found the presentation and they feel more enlightened. They also said you made them feel at ease so they could ask questions. Thank you again.




Firstly thanks for talk yesterday at Dunton. Very helpful and informative the people I have spoken to say it was very good and they thought it was well worth attending.

I found it very interesting with just the right amount of content and I would attend other sessions.



I thought it was really useful and the right level of information and I would like to see more







I attended the presentation yesterday and was very pleased with it.  Not too much information as to get boring, but just the information we need to be on the look out.  The folders will be useful as a memory jogger as well.



I would definitely like to see more of this sort of information session in the future.



Yes, I found the presentation very informative indeed, with having three sons, and a husband, the information I received, I went straight home to deliver to them all !  The information will be helpful in the future, and the quantity just right, (with no information over load) The literature received, I have taken away with me to place them in our break out area for everyone.




The facilitator was excellent also, as was not all doom and gloom, and was very good at getting the important points across.




I thought the presentation was extremely useful and informative.




Information was pitched at right level, and gave good insights, would attend similar events for sure.




Getting a really good response to your presentation.






Thank you so much for your talk last year, I know the boys found the talk fun (passing the balls around!) and extremely informative. I was wondering if I could book you again.
