21st century leadership: rebuilding trust and re-engaging talent

"We had an amazing and enriching Performance Theatre in Lisbon that was without any doubt the best ever. Energising , stimulating , mind opening and simply enjoyable. From purpose to leadership to tackling some of the biggest challenges the world faces. This was only possible thanks to Gabrielle's great leadership in not only putting this all together but also by skilfully leading all the key sessions with passion." Unilever

"I have seldom experienced a moderator who possesses such great skills in bridging different panel participants perspectives, synthesizing their views and outlining potential leanings – without occupying any unnecessary space herself. Gabrielle demonstrates great passion and confidence with the subject matter while treating every panel participant with the greatest respect." Ikea Foundation


"Gabrielle Walker is a lively and charming speaker, with passionate views and a stack of evidence. She brings data alive and engages her audience with her extraordinary vitality." The Rt Hon Michael Portillo, former UK Cabinet Minister


"It is rare indeed to find a facilitator who has such a grasp of the subject that she instinctively knows which points to pursue and which to drop and does so with such an effective combination of charm, persistence and firmness." Royal Dutch Shell


"I had heard many of the global warming points before, but I’d never heard them combined so well across a range of inter-related subjects: i.e. corporate social responsibility, likely future consumer behaviours, and capital structures. The combination made quite an impact." Pocket
