Dr Gabrielle Walker is an expert strategist, speaker and moderator, with a focus on sustainability and climate change and their impacts on the energy, finance and transportation sectors.
Gabrielle works as an advisor at boardroom-level with a wide range of companies, helping to broker cross-sectoral collaborations and turn good intentions into real action on the ground. She is also a keynote speaker to corporate audiences globally and moderator of high-level debates, has hosted many international meetings and guided panels involving global CEOs, former heads of state, government ministers, military generals and global humanitarian leaders.
Gabrielle Walker has presented dozens of TV and radio programs for the BBC, reporting from all seven continents, and has written very extensively for international newspapers and magazines, including The Economist, Prospect, The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times. She is author of four books including co-authoring the bestselling book The Hot Topic, how to avoid global warming while still keeping the lights on, which was described by Al Gore as “a beacon of clarity” and by The Times as “a material gain for the axis of good”.
She has a PhD from Cambridge University and has taught at both Cambridge and Princeton Universities.
We had an amazing and enriching Performance Theatre in Lisbon that was without any doubt the best ever. Energising , stimulating , mind opening and simply enjoyable. From purpose to leadership to tackling some of the biggest challenges the world faces. This was only possible thanks to Gabrielle's great leadership in not only putting this all together but also by skilfully leading all the key sessions with passion.
I have seldom experienced a moderator who possesses such great skills in bridging different panel participants perspectives, synthesizing their views and outlining potential leanings – without occupying any unnecessary space herself. Gabrielle Walker demonstrates great passion and confidence with the subject matter while treating every panel participant with the greatest respect.

It is rare indeed to find a facilitator who has such a grasp of the subject that she instinctively knows which points to pursue and which to drop and does so with such an effective combination of charm, persistence and firmness

“Gabrielle’s talk was the highlight of our sustainability workshop—we got rave reviews. Gabrielle Walker expertly set up the issue of climate change and plastic waste, and the growing momentum around the circular economy and industry action. Her presentation was simple, relatable, impactful and touched everyone at a personal level. It led to tremendous energy in the room to take action and genuinely contribute towards tackling the issue.”
