She has also written for, amongst others, The Economist, The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times.
As a writer Gabrielle has published four titles, including co-authoring the bestselling The Hot Topic - How to avoid global warming while still keeping the lights on. The book separated out the hype, the dogma and the agendas to look at the realities of, and potential solutions to climate change. It was was described by Al Gore as “a beacon of clarity” and by The Times as “a material gain for the axis of good”.
As a consultant and strategist Gabrielle advises businesses at C-level on issues including areas for future investment, manufacturing and the circular economy, and the impact strategy in these sectors can have on public and employee perception of a business.

Gabrielle’s work has seen her make over a dozen trips to both North and South poles. She has also climbed trees in the Amazon, been sneezed on by a whale, extracted lava from an active volcano, swum amongst piranhas, and experienced zero gravity.
