  • Leon Lategan has assisted Nox Rentals and Classic Villas with a number of Sales courses over the past few years. His knowledge and insight is invaluable and we have seen terrific results, assisting our two primary businesses with some of our best ever sales months. His workshops are very worthwhile, and our team always come back rejuvenated and inspired which is brilliant! We'll definitely run with Leon's workshops and consulting for many years to come.

    Nick Taylor
    Nick TaylorManaging Director, The Nox Group
  • I first met Leon when he spoke at a digital marketing seminar I attended and immediately knew he could provide our business with the skill set it was lacking. Leon's easy manner instils confidence that your business will grow and explains clearly and concisely why the changes he recommends can only but work. Regardless of his successful business background, he speaks a language which is understandable to even the smallest business owner. Through his vast knowledge and understanding of websites and conversion tactics, his hands on no nonsense approach and easy project management style, I have no problem recommending him to any business owner looking for ways to improve their website and ultimately their business.

  • Leon Lategan's expertise in the field of e-commerce and database strategies is the main reason I approached him. After working with Leon for a short amount of time I immediately saw results and understood why he is the best at what he does. The greatest thing for me was that Leon doesn't just consult but he empowers too. After my consultation I felt confident to take the lessons taught and implement them myself to grow my business successfully. He's also a nice guy :)

Understanding him to be an extremely successful businessman, one cannot but be stimulated to apply his methods. In his consultation times with me he has been expressive and succinct; to be exposed to his enlightening analytical ideas as well as his often times out-of-the-box input is highly motivating. With his know-how, his humour and his gift of the gab, Leon is a tremendous asset to consult with for any company has my highest recommendation.

He goes through each of your online channels from your website through to social media and online advertising, providing you with a step by step means of improving each of these areas, with the ultimate goal of growing your business. I was very impressed by Leon’s ability to succinctly analyse my business and everything he recommended made complete sense.

SPEAKING

One of my absolute passions is educating people in my areas of expertise and as a result of this I started speaking at numerous different conferences since 2011.

I found myself enjoying speaking and being able to share valuable content with hundreds of people at one event and the delegates responded very positively, so much so that I was being invited to speak at more and more conferences.

The conferences were mainly focused around my areas of expertise i.e. Internet Marketing, Small Business Growth and Retail/E-commerce and after speaking at 15 conferences over the past three years I was voted by the delegates as the top speaker at 14 of these conferences. Read more…

Speaking Testimonials

  • I invited Mr. Lategan to give a presentation at the Hospitality Association of Namibia’s Annual Congress in 2011 after seeing him in action at the Internet Marketing Conference held in Windhoek earlier this year.  His presentation was hands down the best presentation at the Internet Marketing Conference and he did not disappoint with his presentation at the Hospitality Association of Namibia’s Congress either, where he was once again by far the best speaker. He engaged with the audience by providing a perfect balance of interaction, information and humour. He possesses a in depth understanding of group behavior and a very indepth understanding of the subject matter which he conveys in  a very convincing manner.  It was an absolute pleasure to have him at the Hospitality Association of Namibia’s Congress and I hope to be able to welcome him back one day.

  • Thanks Leon that was excellent as it provided useful, practical information as well as challenging the way I look at my site. Mine is currently an informational site so is 'prettier' than most plain sales sites need to be. However, I am in the middle of making some long-planned site changes and after this is complete I will definitely ask your opinion on whether the most important information stands out and grabs the user and persuades them to act in the way I require.

  • You were our highest score, so congratulations. Leon spoke at our inaugural Retail Indaba conference earlier this year. Retail Indaba aims to bring together retail management, retail staff, online retailers, suppliers and industry for high-level learning, networking and team building. Leon’s talk focused on Conversion Optimisation and looked at how retailers need to increase the amount of visitors to their website/mobile site and then more importantly turning these visitors into customers/clients. He even took the bold step by visiting attending delegates’ websites and using their websites as case studies in his presentation. It was a delight to work with Leon and we look forward in doing so again in future.

He is able to transfer the rather complex technology of conversion optimization, web usability, search engine optimization and marketing in a very easy  and entertaining way to the audience. At the 2012 Reservation Destination Member Summit he opened the eyes of the 25 portfolio members as he showed up their current web sites and explained on how to easily optimize them for a better conversion. Everybody understood immediately what needs to be done and  thus it was very valuable to have Leon as part of our annual summit in 2012.

  • Once again thank you for having shared your expertise at the On-line Retailing event, we are very grateful for speakers like you. You really add value to our events.   As discussed on the phone just now here is your rating: Methodology: We used the Weighted Average Method (WAM): each great was multiplied by 1.5, good by 1 and bad by -0.5.

  • And you ask me why we partner up with Leon!!!  Rated the best guest speaker, not once but twice at the Online Retailing Conferences 2011 & 2012, Leon Lategan adds an immense amount of value to every event that he is a part of. As a thought leader in his industry, Leon captivates his audience not by following the norm but rather by challenging the status quo. Having worked closely with him on both events, the team at Trade Conferences International values Leon’s contribution and support. It is only through partnerships with speakers like him that we are able to bring delegates world class events. Leon, thank you for time and effort you entrust into each presentation, the atmosphere you bring to every conference and for sharing your know-how with the industry.

  • I have known Leon Lategan for a number of years, and have always been inspired by his in-depth understanding of business as well as his passion for passing this knowledge on to others. Understanding him to be an extremely successful businessman, one cannot but be stimulated to apply his methods. In his consultation times with me he has been expressive and succinct; to be exposed to his enlightening analytical ideas as well as his often times out-of-the-box input is highly motivating. With his know-how, his humour and his gift of the gab, Leon is a tremendous asset to consult with for any company has my highest recommendation.

  • I first met Leon when he spoke at a digital marketing seminar I attended and immediately knew he could provide our business with the skill set it was lacking. Leon's easy manner instils confidence that your business will grow and explains clearly and concisely why the changes he recommends can only but work. Regardless of his successful business background, he speaks a language which is understandable to even the smallest business owner. Through his vast knowledge and understanding of websites and conversion tactics, his hands on no nonsense approach and easy project management style, I have no problem recommending him to any business owner looking for ways to improve their website and ultimately their business.

  • To be frank I loved  your presentation, and I rate you as the best speaker/presenter of the IMC Africa 2012. Everything you shared with us was spot on and that showed maturity and professionalism of the work you doing. You made us (audience) to be part of your presentation. One key factor that I believe made your presentation to be exceptionally different from other speakers is the fact that you took your time and visited all your audience websites so as to show us typical errors that hinders attracting customers/clients to our company websites. Your boldness of standing up to say this doesn’t work , this is how you make it to work, shows you are a person that has this motive of being the best, doing the best, achieving the best and sharing the best. I’m not surprised why your company is recognised as the best in South Africa, you simply the best and attract the best!
