With a career spanning more than 40-years within the Australian arts and entertainment industry, Lizzi brings a wealth of knowledge and experience, not to mention her unrelenting passion for conservation and cinematography, to WEO.

It was a during her first ‘coup de foudre’ trip to Africa in 2011 then again in 2017 (during a writer’s retreat led by best-selling author William Whitecloud) where Lizzi cemented the idea of combining her creative pursuits with her love for animals, our planet and humanitarianism. When founder, Jacquie Pohl called Lizzi in 2020 to assist in establishing the inaugural WEO Film Festival, a friendship, vision and respected working relationship was born. A home where Lizzi with the other team members could apply their aspirations, showcasing her passions with the rest of Australia through the lenses of some of our most talented Creatives and Educators.

Since she began her career in the music industry in the 1980s, and throughout her time working alongside partner Mark at the highly regarded talent agency Morrissey Management, Lizzi has nurtured some of the biggest names in Australian entertainment. Since 2017, Lizzi has run her own boutique agency MissusM Creative, which represents and produces an elite group of talent for film, television, music and events.

Lizzi has become known and respected in the industry as a visionary and expert collaborator with a special way of bringing people together and drawing attention to a range of causes close to her heart. In the 1980s, she put together a concert with Peter Garrett for the Nuclear Disarmament Party. In the 1990s, Lizzi organised Keith Urban to front a concert in support of the plight of the people of East Timor. In 2008, Lizzi was one of a small number of people invited by Olivia Newton-John to accompany her on a 21-day walk along the Great Wall of China to raise money for cancer research and the ONJ wellness Centre. In more recent years, Lizzi has and continues to work alongside Tourism Australia on their Ambassadors program and has been linked to organisations like Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary and Canteen.

In everything that she does, Lizzi prides herself as a leader and mentor. Her trademark no-fuss and marketer attitude – along with her unwavering commitment to ethics and professional standards – sees her guidance and opinions in high demand.

Not one to name drop you can be assured, Lizzi continues to work alongside many awe-inspiring and desired talent.

Lizzi lives between Sydney and Byron Bay with partner Mark and their two daughters Mia and Piper, who both share their parents’ passion for the arts and zest for life.

Saving our WILDLIFE from extinction, educating all generations, highlighting the incredible work conservationists do to save our world, our natural world, and the inhabitants we share above, within, and beneath this great planet is what WEO is about.
