Liezel van der Westhuizen lands exciting international gig.

Only a few weeks after emceeing a successful conference in the United Kingdom, Liezel van der Westhuizen has accepted another exciting international opportunity – this time to act as Master of Ceremonies at a 3 day conference in Hong Kong.

“Landing a corporate gig of this calibre in a world class business hub like Hong Kong is really a dream come true and I look forward to building on these kinds of opportunities even more in the future,” says Liezel.

Having kicked off her public speaking career on home ground in South Africa 10 years ago, Liezel has hosted events across the country, as well as in other international destinations such as Indonesia, Thailand and the Seychelles.

Embracing the challenges and joys of diversity, Liezel has hosted high-end corporate functions, gala dinners, award shows and conferences for major global and local brands in South Africa and Africa. This has successfully equipped her for the 3-day conference in Hong Kong taking place on the 14th – 17th May.

With infectious energy, sharp wit and panache being the hallmarks of Liezel’s brand, it’s no surprise that her work receives consistent rave reviews from clients.

Passionate about education, Liezel notes that her degrees in Human Resources Management (B.COM) and Communications(HONS and M.COM) have been invaluable in laying the groundwork for what can only be described as a rewarding and fulfilling career.

Being part of the Toastmaster’s Society – and having received bronze and silver awards – this continues to give Liezel’s work an extra edge.

Apart from hosting events, Liezel is also often asked to do motivational talks and deliver keynote addresses. A few of her most popular topics include: ‘Beating the workplace Bully’, ‘Empowering Women’ and ‘Finding your inner strength’.

All the best to Liezel in Hong Kong – make SA proud!
