Leighton Davis is a man who wears many hats. During the course of a busy week, he juggles being chief executive officer, pastor, counsellor, co-worker, brother, father, husband and friend.

Sometimes these hats are stacked so high, that trying to balance them all, can seem overwhelming, but Davis who describes himself as a serial entrepreneur is passionate about his life, his family and his projects.

“I am a man of God first, husband and father to three beautiful children. I love to build brands. My passion for business started at Wolmer’s Boys School. I took my lunch money for the entire week and bought sweets from Woolworth. I resold them and doubled my money,” Davis said.

His early entrepreneurial pursuits then served as a catalyst for his later years as an astute businessman.

As a teenager, and while in his early twenties, Davis promoted several events including Special Delivery, Smirnoff Xclusive and Heineken Wednesdays, among others.

His passion for event management also led him into launching and managing events for several corporate companies in Jamaica.

“I have been blessed to help launch many local and international brands including Digicel 4G, Massy Insurance, GK MPay, and RBC Bank.  I was also part owner and publisher for Wealth Magazine and Jamaica’s first 24hr business cable channel Business Access TV,” Davis shared.

The launch of Wealth Magazine

Wealth Magazine was a finance and lifestyle magazine which was entirely Jamaican; all writers, businesses and personalities featured in the magazine were Jamaicans.

Five years after the creation of Wealth Magazine, Davis and his then business partner Garth Walker launched Business Access TV, a fresh, revolutionary breakthrough in Jamaica’s media landscape.

It was the first business and lifestyle cable channel to provide original local content that motivates and inspires.

They also delivered high-quality programmes that promoted positive ideas and initiatives to grow wealth and prosperity.

Prior to starting Wealth Magazine, Davis was the import manager at Mainland International Limited for six years. However, he kept his passion for event planning and promotions active during this time.

He has also had roles from general manager at LoveTV to a director for various companies in media, manufacturing and event management.

Additionally, Davis served on the board of directors of the Bureau of Standards and the Factories Corporation of Jamaica.

“I have had many failures and many accomplishments, they both have helped me to become a better marketer and project manager,” he said.

Today, Davis who has been at the forefront of brand building and project management in Jamaica for the past 20 years now leads the team at Project2Project Consultants.

Their mission is to implement world-class marketing strategies to help clients to become number one in their industries.

“P2P operates as a boutique agency managing various brand, event and marketing executions for corporate companies in Jamaica.  From my experience, innovative ideas and track record companies and organisations call on me to execute for them and this has allowed me to start this business to fill this void,” Davis said.

Several of his clients include Guardian Group, EdgeChem, Keller Williams Jamaica, Jamaica Manufacturing and Exports Associations, Purity Bakery, EduFocal, Unicomer (Courts) Jamaica Limited, GraceKennedy Group and Jamaica Business Development Corporation to name a few.

Davis said he is naturally driven, not only to provide for his family but to leave a legacy on earth.

“I have a passion for brand building and helping others to achieve their purpose in business and their professional careers. I have always loved helping persons, I have turned this into my mission.”
