It’s not about conquering a mountain; it’s about conquering YOURSELF.
Some people wake up every day, doubting their ability to achieve their goals however big or small. Take the leap and realize your true potential by stepping outside of your comfort zone.

Leanne Manas will take you on a motivational journey through her life – from being the shyest little girl in the class to becoming one of the most recognizable faces on South African television.

Hear about her encounters with Presidents, Celebrities and everyday South Africans and the lessons that she has learnt along the way. None of this would have been achieved without the courage and self-belief that Leanne possesses.

All of this intertwined into her unlikely journey to the Summit of Mount Kilimanjaro. Leanne Manas will have you hanging onto her every word during this emotional rollercoaster of a talk that will leave you wanting to achieve your impossible.
