Mr Jaco Odendaal

Ms L (Lizelle) Pretorius

She holds a Bachelor of Commerce (BCom) degree as well as a BCom Honours degree in Management Accounting from North-West University in Potchefstroom. She joined Exceed, Tax and Advisory Services (Pty) Ltd in 2014 and is a registered student of the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA). Lizelle enjoys various outdoor activities and also volunteers at Hillsong Church. Assisting her in her endeavours is article clerk, Cara-Lee Nel from Exceed’s Stellenbosch office.

Ms C (Cara-Lee) Nel

Cara-Lee Nel is fairly new to Bergzicht Training. Since joining our Board in May 2016, she has jumped in head first to further our mission to provide affordable and exceptional education for the less fortunate through her financial know-how. She completed a BCom Financial Management degree at the University of Pretoria in 2014 and in 2015 moved to the beautiful town of Stellenbosch to complete her BCom Management Accounting (Honours) at Stellenbosch University. Currently she is registered as a student at the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA). In her free time she enjoys the range of outdoor activities that the Western Cape has to offer.

Volunteers: Student Welfare Support and Mentorship

Ms A (Annette) Scott

Annette Scott is a qualified social worker who joined our team as a volunteer in 2015. She provides welfare support and mentorship to our students on a weekly basis. Annette obtained a BA Social Work from Stellenbosch University in 1976 and worked for the Worcester Workshop for the Blind and Child Welfare South Africa in Boksburg. She has also managed her own play school for young kids 
and has served on various school committees at Roedean School and St John’s College. 
When Annette is not helping our students reach their full potential, you can find her 
hiking, rowing and doing some birdwatching – all activities which allow her to spend weekends with her family at their holiday home in Hermanus. 

Annette works closely with Hannes Koornhof, a permanent Board Member of Bergzicht Training, to drive a range of welfare support and mentorship activities at Bergzicht Training.
