About Lizette

profile picture, Lizette de Vries-Venter, Linzé Brandon
Lizette de Vries-Venter started her professional life as an engineer specialising in electromagnetic compatibility, then changed to another specialised field: explosion protection - intrinsic safety. Then she added consulting work to the portfolio of her business. The project management came about after she had to close down the business due to a downturn in the economy.
After ten years as a senior project manager, she returned to consulting work specialising in product safety certification. She also formalised her training skills and qualified as a life coach.
Life coaching made perfect sense since it embodies her passion for helping people realise their own goals. She decided to specialise in the things that experience taught her was required for the future: career development and retirement planning.
Lizette is a published author of fiction and non-fiction books (pen name: Linzé Brandon). She started the Pretoria Writers' Group in 2012. By the end of 2016, all the members of the group were published authors as a result of her guidance and leadership.
Since the start of the COVID19 pandemic, she teaches art skills online and plans to have her own art exhibition in the not too distant future.
Her hobbies include reading and cross-stitch embroidery.
She is also a student of Yang style t'ai chi, Stoic philosophy, and is a mindfulness meditation practitioner.
Lizette is married to Francois Venter and they live in Pretoria, South Africa.
