She has worked with businesses in: oil and gas, utilities, renewables, finance & investment, retail, FMCG, risk management, certification and in professional services organisations.

She is co-author of the bestseller The Hot Topic on how to avoid global warming while still keeping the lights on, described by Al Gore as “a beacon of clarity” and by The Times as “a material gain for the axis of good”. She is author of four books exploring the relationship between humans and our planet. Gabrielle has been published in more than 20 countries and translated into a dozen languages.
As well having also climbed trees in the Amazon rainforest, swum with piranhas, been sneezed on by a humpback whale, hooked lava out of a live volcano, and flown in zero gravity, Gabrielle describes herself as “ice addict” and has made more than a dozen trips to both poles.
