Gabrielle Dolan can tell you a story or two.
In fact, it was while working in a senior leadership role at National Australia
Bank that she realised the power of storytelling in effective business
communication. Since that epiphany, Gabrielle has found her calling as a
global thought leader on authentic leadership and business storytelling.
A highly sought-after keynote speaker, educator and author, Gabrielle has
worked with thousands of high-profile leaders from around the world and
helped countless of Australia’s top 50 ASX companies and multinationals to
humanise their communications – Accenture, EY, VISA, Uber, Australia Post,
National Australia Bank, Amazon and International Committee Red Cross to
name drop a few.
She holds a master’s degree in management and leadership from Swinburne
University, an associate diploma in education and training from the University
of Melbourne, and is a graduate of the Harvard Kennedy School of Executive
Education in both the Art and Practice of Leadership Development and Women
and Power: Leadership in a New World.

Bringing humanity to the way business people communicate isn’t just a career,
it’s a calling. The ultimate expression of her passion for the cause is her Jargon
