Speaking Engagements

Over the last thirty five years, Hugh Latif has been retained for numerous speaking engagements.

Hugh has an informal style and always interacts with the audience. He comes across as inspiring and honest. He handles business strategy, international markets, sales and marketing, business management, organizational change, leadership and motivational subjects with creativity and insight.

He can effectively make "boring subjects" attractive through the use of humor, personal experiences and observations he brings from his extensive travel around the globe.

His fluency in five languages (English, French, Italian, Portuguese and Arabic) and his intimate knowledge and experience with many international markets makes him an ideal speaker for many special events.

Hugh customizes his speaking engagements to his clients' needs. He focuses on the client's objectives and challenges and is "quick on his feet" with a wide range of audiences. He is committed to making the event a successful one and he offers an overall unique service backed by a satisfaction guarantee.

Previous speaking engagements include business events, seminars, presentations, as a keynote speaker, association events, sales meetings, internal and external corporate events, etc.

Previous speaking engagements include, Ontario Exports Inc. The Canadian Association of Corporate Growth. AC Nielsen, Small Business Week Event, Association of Canadian Biscuit Mfg, Nielsen Media Research, The Business Development Bank, Step Ahead, The Dun & Bradstreet Corporation and The Mississauga Board of Trade.
