Ep 232: Introducing Courageous Conversations with Leanne Pilkington

“It’s important to talk about the story and the journey. Because when people get to the pinnacle of their careers, there's often a lot of stuff that goes on behind the scenes you don't get to hear."

It’s the start of something new on the Elevate podcast as we welcome Leanne Pilkington to the team as host of her podcast Courageous Conversations.

Leanne has been the host of Courageous Conversations since May of 2019.

She is also the Managing Director of real estate group Laing+Simmons, the President of REINSW, the founder of Real Women in Real Estate (RWIRE) – as well as being a regular contributor to Elite Agent.

As some of you already know – with Courageous Conversations you can expect a frank and fearless look behind the scenes with some of the industry’s most prominent names how they got to where they are today; the challenges they have needed to overcome in the process and how they conquered the obstacles in their pathway.

To celebrate Episode 81 of Courageous Conversations and the first episode under the Elite Agent Elevate brand, Leanne’s first guest is Elite Agent Editor and Elevate’s regular host, Samantha McLean.
