What leadership capability will you need to thrive?


Last night I was a guest speaker for the International Women’s Forum Emerging leaders’ program. One of the questions I was asked to address was “What leadership capability will you need to thrive as a future leader?”

Real Communication

Now I know I might be a bit biased, but my answer was real communication. Specifically, storytelling to connect and engage with people in a more authentic way. I also combined this with being able to more effectively present information. These leadership capabilities have always been an important aspect of leadership. But as we lead into a future with more diversity, greater uncertainty and exponential rates of change, the ability to communicate, influence and present in a more engaging and effective way is critical.

Storytelling and Presenting

This is exactly what I help people with, hence my bias. I have scheduled one remaining public workshop each of Business Storytelling and Presenting with Impact for 2021. Both are half day virtual sessions coming up in November. I know we are all over virtual everything, including drinks, meetings and training but I guarantee you this will be some of the best virtual training you have ever done. You can see a snippet of testimonials from previous virtual participants below.


Gabrielle’s workshops are incredible. She engages and captivates her audience in a way that optimises each participant’s interest and learning – something that requires great skill in a virtual environment. Gabrielle is an exceptional presenter and educator on communication. Julie Bolton, Newcrest Mining

So glad I registered for the Presenting with Impact Webcast. Your humility, humour and ability to flow seamlessly was masterful. Natalie Welch, Founder, Work Team

Alternatively, an in-house session for your team might be more suitable. Feel free to contact us to set up a time to have a chat with me about your needs. My calendar for 2021 is almost fully booked out but I do have a handful of dates still available. We are also taking bookings for 2022 with the hope that we can run face to face sessions once more.
