Marilise de Villiers Basson
Marilise de Villiers Basson, the founder & CEO of ROAR! Coaching & Consulting. Marilise is a Certified High Performance Coach, Best-selling Author and Behaviour Change Consultant that specialises in Finance, Technology and Cyber Security Awareness, Culture & Talent. At ROAR! we are passionate about people living successful, healthy, and happy lives. It’s about making your whole life work and becoming your best self, living your best life. Over the last decade, Marilise has been specialising in Cyber Security ACT, supporting organisations to move away from traditional compliance-led “tick box” awareness approaches, towards risk-based, people-centric approaches, where the aim is to embed secure mindsets and habits into organisational cultures. Marilise’s work links closely to speak up culture as organisations rely heavily on their people to report suspicious behaviour and mistakes promptly in order tocontain and fix incidents. As a result, Marilise passionately believes that leaders have a legal and moral duty to create safe and inclusive spaces where individuals and teams are not afraid to speak up, can perform at their best, and in turn make their organisations high performing.
