Beyond The Black - Keynote Speaker - Alex Honnold


Alex Honnold

Get inspired to go beyond with professional rock climber Alex Honnold—the only human to free solo Yosemite’s El Capitan—an achievement captured in the Oscar-winning film Free Solo. More people will walk on the moon than will do what Alex has done. His rare skill, unmatched mental focus, and unique future vision will make you think he’s (almost) from another universe.

Join us at BeyondTheBlack to hear Alex’s riveting keynote where he’ll encourage you to go beyond the limits and envision what’s possible when you tackle challenges head-on. In these times of uncertainty, get motivated to overcome obstacles, dig deep for strength, conquer fears, and embrace resilience to reach hard-to-imagine heights.
