“Enthusiastic, motivating, unpretentiously happy, hard working as a few people I have met my whole career so far.” ~ Andreas Gournelos – IT Manager, DAGOC
“I know Liezel form the Doha Asian Games Organization Committee which was a multinational working environment formed to serve the Asian games while it was hosted in Qatar in 2006. We were from 77 different nationalities with many different mind sets and coming from different backgrounds and different cultures. Liezel was dealing with everybody in the team and with different contractors who came from different countries but she was always there, smiling, supportive, and helpful. She is so professional, hardworking and committed.” ~ Eyas Orabi Nakhleh – IT Projects, DAGOC
“I have worked with her during the preparation for the Asian Games in Doha in 2005/6, during that time I have found her to be well organized and disciplined in the tasks that she carries out.
Her time spent in the various executive assistant roles has prepared her to take a step into a project management position primarily for her organizational abilities, her teambuilding skills and her ability to focus to deliver to agreed deadlines.
She can relate well to people and it is with these skills and individual dedication that she will be an excellent choice to manage and lead projects to a successful conclusion.” ~ Murray Isaac – PMO Manager and Consultant, DAGOC
