About Me

Hi I'm Liza. I have a number of years experience in both the Marketing and advertising industry as well as eCommerce Online stores and extensive Leisure and Corporate Travel Management experience in some of South Africa’s leading Tourism and Travel Management Companies.

My Corporate Travel & Leisure Agency working experience coupled with a qualification in Online marketing through the University of Cape Town attributes to an informed and creative mind. With experience in both outbound and corporate travel as well as my digital marketing experience, I am competent and capable to independently manage, monitor, research, create, post, respond, co-ordinate, interact, represent and report back

I work well independently or as part of a team.  I am a determined and disciplined go-getter who  has just recently sold one of my businesses. I continue with my digital marketing consulting and have recently founded and opened a school in Durban North for special needs children.

Public Relations, Marketing and Travel are my 3 passions and my creative comfort zonesI have included my most relevant skills yet abbreviated positions and information. Should you wish to see my Full CV please visit my LinkedIn Profile
