Lord Jason Scott

Prestige Events Magazine had the pleasure of getting to know the one and only, Lord Jason Scott. Founder and CEO of Lokkima- Fat Loss Technology and Franchises, Speaker, 2 X Best Selling Author, event industry legend, and member of LevelUponSlack.

1. You are a legend in the world of events! What inspired you to create 
Lokkima, The Eventrepreneur, and The Guestlist Podcast?
Thank you, I was doing very well in events, loved every moment of it but members of my family were not getting the same opportunity to do something they loved, so I looked at what my family focused on. This research lead to me understanding that looking and feeling good was the one thing that everyone of us had in common and so Lokkima ( a new wave) was born. An aesthetic cosmetic technology business that could help my dad and so many others live a life of passion, purpose, and profit. You can see more of my story here and see the treatment in detail in his interview on the Espresso morning show in South Africa.

Eventrepreneur Ltd was started, with one aim in mind, to help as many people as possible level up in their business. It is now growing to be the fastest-growing business group for founders in the world, connecting entrepreneurs throughout the world over Slack. Our community of members represents 6, 7, 8, even 9-digit founders. LevelUp OnSlack  ‘Your Network is your Net-Worth’ is a group dedicated to working together, assisting each other and mentoring each other to achieve growth like never before. A community moderated and mentored by founders and business owners who have excelled way past 6 figures and some way over 7 and 8 figures. 
As for The Guestlist PodcastAs podcasting continues to go mainstream, more listeners overall means more possibilities for your organization to reach new clients and customers.  So it only makes sense that I launched a podcast. That said, I had no idea that it would do as well as it has, but I believe this is more due to my guests than my hosting skills. The secondary reason for me having a podcast, and this could be one for you too is to enable me to build a stronger relationship with you, my followers, fans, friends, and audience – much stronger than I could ever do with just my tweets, and blogs alone, I believe. I also teach others to podcast now and have a consulting service to take people from podcast zero to listeners hero.
