Lizani Smith

Head of Tours Department at Paris Perfect

Lizani has studied tourism management at TUT and has worked in the industry for the past 5 years. The first 2 years she did bookings for apartments in Paris and London and the last 3 years she developed a tours department for the company - an apartment rental agency called Paris Perfect and London Perfect. Setting up the tours department required the sourcing of quality tour operators, tour guides, putting tour packages together, creating itineraries and sourcing tickets and solutions for custom requests. The company also set up a concierge department in Paris which included preparation and delivery of all tour documents and tickets as well as special requests like a cake for a birthday, champagne for a celebration and so forth. All was co-ordinated between Lizani in South Africa and her colleague in Paris.

Previously Lizani has also worked as a creative consultant at a packaging design agency called Sainsbury Design, and has been part of a multimedia company for 3 years where she filmed and edited short films, weddings, corporate videos, music videos and live mixing of corporate functions.

Lizani loves to sing, is learning to play the guitar (it is going very slow) and is obsessed with music. She loves people and their stories. She is also excited to learn new skills and to see the world in a timely manner. There is no rush.
