Connection space with Liesl Cronje – Brand architect for students, mold-breakers and entrepreneurs

Hi there!

I am Liesl Cronje, coach, mentor and brand architect to the courageous and wild at heart.  I guide students, mid-career mold breakers and budding entrepreneurs towards discovering their Unique Selling Proposition (talents, skills and passion).

In my former work life of twenty six years as HR practitioner, PR exec and training workshop facilitator, I mastered many skills around people, communication and connections, which I now combine with my life and business coaching skills to assist you!

Twelve years ago I resigned from a permanent position at an Educational Institution and started my own business Thyme Events, with the vision to facilitate events and workshops which connects people with their own passion and purpose as well as with others.  I broke the prescribed mold of day to day living and freed my heart!  It took lots of courage, hence the name Thyme Events – Thyme meaning courage.

Being a wild-at-heart-mold-breaker and entrepreneur is not easy but it’s worth it, and I wish it for you!

So, let’s connect!

Choose the Thyme Events logo to visit my workshop facilitation products and the Thyme2B logo to visit my brand architect products.

Isn’t it about thyme …

to find new ideas,

to connect,

to brand yourself, or your team,

to tell your story,

to start designing a new way of thinking and doing?

Whatever Thyme it is for you, I hope to be part of it!

Thyme greetings,
