Type Of Speaker


Thanks for giving an excellent talk at the Central Saint Martins, Culture & Enterprise Symposium. You were incredibly engaging and you delivered a memorable talk, sharing your business expertise, entrepreneurial insights, and knowledge on sustaining impact.
University of the Arts London

Gabby gave an engaging and honest talk. She has an inspiring story and an incredible understanding of leadership and what it takes to run a social enterprise that matters. The team took a lot of take-aways from the talk and it will no doubt help to shape the work we do.
Love Her Wild

Gabby talked passionately and inspirationally about the successes of Bloody Good Period & Bloody Good Employer. I loved her personal stories and insights into how they achieve real impact through advocacy, partnership and a sparkly tampon. She really inspired me to think about how change happens, and the levers to pull to maximise impact.
Given Agency

Gabby balanced speaking about her own experiences with really tangible actions for how to be an activist. The students got loads out of it and found it really helpful to hear about what young people can do if they want to change something. All in all, just a really empowering and clear session. More schools need Gabby to speak to their students.
