"As a coach, I aim to enhance leaders’ repertoires to adapt and connect across cultures without losing their sense of self. They become stronger influencers and communicators and savvier at deciphering cultural norms and leveraging cultural diversity. They develop their capacity to be more strategic and visionary and they address leadership behaviours that negatively impact their performance."

Gabriella is a seasoned international executive coach and a best-selling author. A former Marketing Director with an 18 year career spanning across the globe, Gabriella had responsibility for group strategy, branding, product management, marketing communications and research working in partnership with cross-cultural teams.

The seven day crash course to master fear and break through any challenge' – and is the author of two career development audio books.
