In a world where information is moving at a speed of light, we cannot continue to decry the lack of data. We cannot afford to be left behind. The danger of not having readily available and easy to access data is that false claims can easily be made and be accepted because they are not likely to be disputed or discredited due to lack of data. In this age of rapid change, research is required by organisations to aid success, to keep pace with changing needs, ideas, practices, technologies, behaviours, laws, regulations and demography that are likely to impact our businesses, to find, gauge and seize opportunities, and to provide innovative solutions. In addition, organisational decisions that are supported by both theoretical and empirical facts are at the very core of sustainable organisational success. Show me a truly innovative and successful organisation, and I will show you what has gone into research and development. There is a common saying that “ipsa scientia potestas est,” that is “knowledge itself is power” or simply “knowledge is power.” Knowledge empowers organisational leaders and followers to achieve great results. Indeed, true power comes from knowledge and no individual or nation can experience genuine prosperity without knowledge. Organisational development is possible through knowledge, and like the Singapore’s knowledge-based economy, a knowledge-based organisational model is possible, if we believe and pursue it.

Some of the challenges and gaps highlighted above are the very reason why LeishTon Consulting & BoardGov Limited (LeishTon) was established. Although LeishTon might not be able to provide all the solutions to the challenges highlighted above, but it would surely contribute its quota, and making sure that regarding the challenge with the non-availability of data, its solution reduces the data challenge by the percentage of its contribution. LeishTon is a company registered in Nigeria to offer game-changing services and solutions in consulting, research, training and corporate governance data (GovData).  At LeishTon, we work to first understand our clients’ specific needs, and then offer personalised solutions. Our services and solutions are for a wide range of sectors, including for profit, public sector and not-for-profit. These services and solutions are also designed to carter for the needs of a wide range of industries, including banking, insurance, agriculture, oil and gas, telecommunications, pharmaceuticals, engineering and construction, extractive, information and communication technology (ICT), real estate and property management, manufacturing, healthcare, retail, services, pension fund administrators (PFAs), and capital market operators (CMOs). Capital Market Operators include, but not limited to, broker-dealer firms, asset management firms, trustees, registrars, issuing houses, wealth management firms, amongst others. We designed three robust website through which we offer consulting, training/research and governance data solutions respectively and our clients can engage us via these websites:

Our philosophy is to deliver the best at all times, “optimum aut nihil.” Our mantra, Insight. Focus. Agility captures the very essence of LeishTon, which is to deliver exceptional service and solutions to our esteemed clients at great speed. We derived our mantra from the genius of the cheetah. In Native American symbology, the cheetah represents swiftness, insight and focus. The cheetah is the fastest land animal in the world, reaching speeds of up to 113km/h. They can accelerate from 0 to 100km/h in just 3 seconds. At LeishTon, we focus on collaborative engagement and disciplined execution to achieve our collective ambition. LeishTon’s collective ambition is necessary to provide a clear and precise summary of how LeishTon leaders and employees think about why they exist, what they hope to accomplish, how they will collaborate to achieve their ambition, and how their brand promise aligns with their core values. At LeishTon, we collaborate to shape a collective ambition that supersedes individual goals and takes into account the key elements required to achieve and sustain success.

With the experience of the global financial crisis in 2008 and the economic uncertainties that followed in many economies across the globe, even up to the present day, it has become imperative for organisational leaders to lead through high-stakes uncertainty. LeishTon would provide support to organisational leaders in this regard. This support would come in many forms, including advisory, training, research, coaching and mentoring.

Our goal is simple, to provide top-tier consulting, training experience and top-notch research and governance data for our esteemed clients. We help our clients succeed where they do business and we enhance their knowledge through our training interventions and make corporate governance data available through our BoardGov database to aid their decision-making. We have assembled transformational, authentic and servant leaders who have the expertise and experience to get the job done, from advice through execution. We would also provide training for knowledge enhancement, where necessary. Our facilitators and trainers, at LeishTon Academy, were carefully selected and they bring valuable experiences as current practitioners and former practitioners in leading and highly regarded organisations. In fact, they are experienced subject matter experts with extensive professional experience in their respective areas of competence. The people behind LeishTon and the faculties are people of impeccable character. They understand that maintaining the trust of their clients is essential to their success and they are committed to putting clients’ interest first. They are also committed to delivering the most exceptional clients’ experience.

At LeishTon, we believe that organisations need to continually re-invent themselves, and organisational leaders and employees need to continually acquire new knowledge to ensure that they as individuals and their organisations continue to be sustainably successful. LeishTon will be a dependable partner in your re-inventive and knowledge enhancement journey.

Finally, the dream behind LeishTon is big and I am proud to be part of this dream, and I hope you will be proud of this dream when you give us the opportunity to offer our services and solutions to you. We would not let you down! Thank you for believing in us and giving us the opportunity to serve you.

Sincerely yours,

McLeish Otuedon.
