Recent testimonials from Gabrielle’s clients:
“Gabrielle is a fantastic speaker. She captivated our audience, and was one of the highest rated speakers by our delegates. She clearly makes the case for why climate change risk is a problem that must be addressed today, while also highlighting why this could be the best investment opportunity of the century. She debunks the myths, provides a clear narrative on what the big issues are, and puts them in an economic context.
