"Landing a corporate gig of this calibre in the capital of northern Italy's Veneto region is really a dream come true and I look forward to building on these kinds of opportunities even more in the future," says Liezel.
Veneto is a North-Eastern Italian region stretching from the Dolomite Mountains to the Adriatic Sea. Venice, its regional capital, is famed for its canals, Gothic architecture and Carnival celebrations.
Veneto was part of the powerful Venetian Republic for more than 1 000 years, between the 7th and 18th centuries.
Having kicked off her public speaking career on home ground in South Africa 10 years ago, Liezel has solidified her globetrotter status; hosting events across the country, as well as in other international destinations such as Bali, Thailand, United Kingdom, and the Seychelles.
Embracing the challenges and joys of diversity, her clients have ranged from high-flying financial institutions, to tourism boards and sporting brands.
