Since Sleeks are from all over South Africa and the world, and some of you weren’t able to join us at the year end dinners, we thought it best to share some of the amazing inspiration from our speakers on the 3 nights. They all had some wisdom, humour and inspiration to share – it needs to be shared far wider than those who were privileged enough to attend. Elan & Eric were brave enough to attend 3 dinners in 3 cities over 3 nights – here’s a short little recap of the amazing nights had by all!
The night opened with our two fearless leaders, Elan & Eric sharing some of the history of Sleekgeek, the path it took to reach 100 000 Sleeks, and the vision for the future. We’re aiming to build a community of 1 000 000 inspirers wherever they are to inspire themselves and those around them to live the best versions of their lives. To pledge to be an inspirer and join the revolution, sign the pledge here: The Sleekgeek Pledge. Next up, we were treated to 3 incredible stories from 3 wonderful ladies from our community – Nicola Cafun, Pumla Muhamba & Jill Prins. Their stories all resonated with the crowd and carried some of the same sentiments throughout – it’s not a quick fix, but a long term commitment to bettering your life, that no matter what your starting point is, you are capable of big change and that if you put your mind to it, you are more powerful than you are capable of comprehending.
Next up, was our JHB bunch. Once again, Elan & Eric kicked off the evening with their vision, mission & objectives for the future of Sleekgeek. Those in attendance were then treated to two brilliant stories of overcoming adversity and living truly inspiring lives – Leigh Ritchie Hirsch & Raquel Floris. Two women who’ve inspired our community with their honesty, integrity & positivity.
The final stop on the Great Sleekgeek Dinner Adventure was Durban. With a full house, the crowd was ready, keen & excited to here from the team as well as hear some amazing stories of transformation & inspiration. Diane van Aswegen, Samantha Amelia Dreyer & Ntomboxolo Thafeni each shared their 10 minute whirlwind stories of how they’ve achieved their goals.
The Year End dinners in all 3 cities were an absolute smash – to meet Sleeks, both golden oldies and newbies, to eat delicious food and to hear stories of such courage and inspiration has lit a fire in all of us to start 2017 with a bang!
Look out for 2017’s dinners in the new year.
