Our Founders

WYSER Group Pty Ltd trading as WYSER Men was founded in 2022 by Larry Dawson and Drew Barrett in their quest to establish an enduring legacy to help men to become better men through specialised online learning programs backed-up by a powerful support network. WYSER Men and the WYSER Community are the result of their combined vision, wisdom and complementary skills and expertise.

Larry Dawson

Larry Dawson is a co-founder of the WYSER Group. His principal objective in life for the past 27 years has been to provide men and women with professional advice on how to happily live in a relationship. As a married man with a blended family of 6 kids and 13 grandchildren, he has "practiced what he preached" to the many thousands of couples he counselled face to face over the years.

Over the years he has studied the modalities of Psychotherapy, Professional Mediation, specialising in Gestalt Therapy, Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP), and Emotion-focused Therapy (EFT), and used all these skills to guide many people to live a better life.

Larry was a co-founder of the Australian arm of the worldwide organisation ManKind Project and brought it here to Australia in the year 2000. He is a Certified Leader Trainer and Certified Full Leader within the ManKind Project (MKP) worldwide. He has traveled the world leading MKP men's Rites of Passage/Initiation weekends and Leadership trainings.

Since retiring and recently witnessing the effects of the COVID pandemic on men and their families, he was persuaded to re-write some of the key programs he has created and presented over the years and make them available online for many more men to access and learn.

His focus now is to ensure that the world after COVID is a place where all men can gain easy access to these exclusive learning programs and the relevant resources that support their needs on how they can be in right relationship with themselves, their partners, their families and their communities.

Drew Barrett

Drew Barrett is a career Information Technology professional and a co-founder of the WYSER Group. His principal objective is to develop and manage the online systems that will enable WYSER Group's vision to uplift and empower men to live their lives to the fullest.

Drew has been developing integrated websites and web applications for over 20 years and brings significant business experience and acumen to the WYSER Group. He is passionate about information technology and software development that is highly functional, yet easily used by people with limited technical experience or capability.

Online training and video conferencing platforms have developed significantly since the onset of the COVID pandemic, and Drew believes that as people become more familiar and comfortable using online systems, it will open opportunities for men to come together online to grow and develop as a man and help support others on a similar journey.
