I have always followed my own path: a treasure hunt to discover my purpose, building bridges between people, exploring new things every day and using my talents to contribute as much as possible.
This has brought me a really big family, friends in 80 countries around the world and a house in the countryside where I grow my own vegetables (talent there is still under construction…).
After exploring my creative and adventurous side in professional ballet and diving, I have worked as a lawyer, in a law firm and for the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs. As a Chief Compliance & Risk Officer in a big telco I have managed and transformed big teams and advised and closely worked with the Board of Management and Supervisory Board. As a management consultant for McKinsey I advised and coached companies on strategy, change management and big transformations.
From pure management consulting I then made the transition into coaching, management support, and team facilitation. Together with my partners, I support individuals and teams in processes of transformation, taking them into nature and giving them the experience of true communication.
I hold a double masters in law and an INSEAD MBA.
I get my inspiration from travelling, nature, books, music and arts. I love dancing, yoga and (healthy) food.
Gabrielle” vision and mission
My dream is to create a shared awareness of how we, as people, can grow – individually and together. When we make true connections, we access incredible potential and boost our creativity. This makes it possible for us to realize great things. In other words, I believe in magic…especially in making magic together.
