“My passion lies in advancing human performance through a practical and principle centred approach.” - Marlinie Ramsamy


Most people you speak to have heard of  The 7 Habits Of Highly Effective People  and when you say the name FranklinCovey, this is what people think of. But FranklinCovey is so much more than one amazing leadership philosophy, it’s a global company specialising in performance improvement by helping organizations achieve results through a change in human behaviour.

FranklinCovey South Africa is a 100% Black-owned organisation with Level 1 BBBEE status and SETA Accreditation.

One of the top 20 leadership development companies in the world, our Mission is to enable greatness in people and organisations everywhere. Our solutions consist of a wide range of  methods, tools and knowledge in strategy execution, sales, culture change, sustainable productivity, personal development and leadership.

We have over 2,000 employees worldwide in +100 countries. The assignments are always about the same thing. To achieve new and better results, in a sustainable way with strong commitment from employees.

Basically, it’s about building cultures. We believe that most things in an organisation can be copied: systems, processes, products, pricing models, etc. But it is not as easy to copy a good and sustainable culture. Culture becomes the ultimate competitive advantage. And the culture is neither more nor less than the sum of the employees’ behaviour, stated and unspoken values ​​as well as the norms and principles that the organisation works towards.

Access to world thought leaders and experts

We have learned that good cultures are always consciously created. They are leader-led, they have clear structures and they have a common language. We have processes for training, workshops and discussions to facilitate this.

We give our customers access to tools, methods, training and ideas from the world’s foremost experts in the areas we work.

In recent years, we have invested approximately US1.5 billion in research and product development to make it easier for those who want to bring about a change in their organisation.

Our strategy is to always strive to offer our customers:

  • The best content in the areas we work with
  • The most comprehensive and high-quality global delivery organisation

The most flexible model for how training and other processes can be conducted, digitally, in classrooms, in seminars, jointly or based on individual development journeys. 

My passion lies in advancing human performance through a practical and principle centred approach.

  • Strategy execution using the 4 Disciplines of Execution approach
  • Talent Building and Management
  • Creating enabling culture / Business Culture Change
  • Productivity
  • Trust
  • Leadership in Schools

Our fearless leader is a seasoned business woman, public speaker, and thought leader. She’s an energetic, vibrant, and empathic keynote speaker with her expertise lying in helping leaders and organisations develop leadership capabilities that drive results and engage people.

With more than a decade of experience and a specialist in leadership development, Marlinie has worked with many large blue chip organisations assisting them to achieve results that require a change in human behaviour.


She believes that great leaders lead their organisation through unleashing the latent talent of their people, clarifying purpose, aligning systems and inspiring trust – key characteristics that create an endearing influence on the organisation’s culture, people engagement and ultimately on business results.


Marlinie lives in Pretoria with her husband Jonathan and their three children
