Smart Talks

Public speaking was once one of my biggest challenges, but I am now a regular keynote speaker at fashion and business events. As my personal focus has shifted from fashion design to mentoring, I have embraced the opportunity to teach and inspire. Every time I step up to speak, I know I have the power to change lives for the better.

My team and I are passionate about making your next event one to remember, where guests not only leave inspired,energised and grinning from ear-to-ear, but are still talking about it weeks later! We offer a range of informative, motivational, educational and fun talks that can be customised to suit any crowd.

In addition to running my own successful businesses, I have been actively involved in several charity organisations as both a stakeholder and board member in South Africa and Australia.

Now, through Smart Collective, I am offering mentoring opportunities across a range of categories. From personal to business, my team and I will support you to be the best version of yourself, while offering practical tips and valuable information across a range of topics.

Smart Fashion Talks

A great attraction for your next event is a tailored fashion talk from one of our Smart Collective stylists. We will work with you to create an outstanding talk that caters to your audience perfectly, taking into consideration factors such as the age, gender, common interests and the type of event you are holding. These talks will be filled with fashion and styling tips, advice for day-to-day dressing and tools to help present yourself positively. As with all Smart Collective work, we aim to inspire everyone to FALL IN LOVE with their own unique fashion style, offering plenty of practical tips how to achieve that.

Fabulous Inside & Outside Talks

Being fabulous inside and outside is all about the balance between a positive outlook, great personality, and great style to complement it. I aim to inform and inspire audiences at these talks with my vast knowledge, life experience and abundance of passion. My talks deliver a range of valuable tips and inspiring information, but they are never without a light-heated laugh or two!

The Fabulous Inside & Outside audience will leave energised and with a greater understanding of the role fashion plays in empowering women to be more confident in their everyday lives, as well as how to embrace their own style. They will gain a much richer belief in the power of positivity – sometimes life does not go as planned, but with a can-do attitude and smile on your face, you can get through almost anything. My goal is to encourage everyone to stop and enjoy the little things in life and make the most out of every precious moment.

I would love to share my journey with you, to inspire and encourage a more positive way forward, anywhere around the world.

Motivational Talks by Lizelle

My life’s passion is to inspire and encourage people to be stronger versions of themselves through my work as a mentor and fashion advisor. In my motivational talks, the key message I bring is that the glass can be ‘half full’, no matter what curve balls are thrown your way.

My motivational talks can be customised to any theme or audience, drawing on a variety of experiences to illustrate the power positive thinking, self-care and enjoying the simple things in life. Amongst other challenges, my childhood home was a caravan, I have overcome learning difficulties and language barriers, I chose to work from the age of 11 and have spent my entire 20-year marriage as a FIFO wife. My two girls and I had to try our best to settle into life in a new country, not knowing anyone and having to face living in a big city for the first time. I have done so much, seen so much and learnt so much already, but these experiences have only made me stronger.

Over the years, I have learnt to find joy even in small moments, like watching the bubbles in a fizzy drink, or enjoying water from a crystal glass. I have always had the ability to look at life from a different angle and be inspired by the world around me.

I would love to share my journey with you to inspire and encourage a more positive, stronger way forward anywhere around the world.
