The heart and soul of Marmanie
We are committed to a future in which social enterprise, environmental stewardship and business leadership converge to create economic growth and prosperity for generations to come.
Marmanie’s mission is to use our expertise and networks to create practical, sustainable growth solutions that positively impact both people and planet.
We carefully craft a ‘middle way’, through consensus and cross sector partnership. We draw from best practices across many fields and creatively apply them to local contexts and opportunities. There are no textbook solutions for the kinds of projects that Marmanie strives to tackle because of their fundamentally interdisciplinary, cross sector nature. We specialize in working in the 'space between', captured conceptually and visually by the brackets in our logo.
What we care about
At Marmanie we believe all solutions start and succeed because people make a commitment.
We work hard and our operating guidelines are simple and values based:
We choose to work in partnership with likeminded people because we know that when we work with clients and partners who have a similar outlook, our collective impact and output is much greater.
Giving and receiving
We believe our network is our greatest asset. Therefore, we work hard at maintaining it. This means we lend our knowledge, skills and time to our contacts as needed, and call on them to assist us when we need their support and complementary expertise.
Local and scalable
We combine local cultural awareness with strong business models. This means building enterprises that harness buy-in from our local partners whilst being flexible and robust enough to ensure that these solutions can scale across geographies, cultures and entrepreneurs.
Thinking and doing
Marmanie is about both thinking and doing. We believe that it is as important to implement and carry through a project on the ground and in the commercial environment as it is to build the strategic vision in the Boardroom. It is by staying involved from vision to full roll-out that we are able to ensure that our solutions are culturally and economically appropriate as well as enduring.
“Marmanie consulting provided high quality advisory services to the Africarbon partnership, helping build out a pioneering business model in a challenging and rapidly evolving multi-stakeholder environment.
We were impressed at the ability to translate broad ideas into actionable initiatives with clear milestones, with Marmanie consultants delivering beyond their brief and willing to take on new tasks that stretched the original remit.
Marmanie is effective at managing multiple clients with a proactive and professional approach that builds buy-in and has increased our confidence in the Africarbon partnership.”
