Entrepreneur. Impact. NO CODE.
"For several weeks, I had been pulling my hair out trying to model a process. I couldn't find where and with what tool to do it. It took Gabrielle 3 minutes. Literally. She saved me from an endless and depressing manual job + now I can capitalize on the new tool. I still can’t believe it."
"Gabrielle is a gifted innovator. Yes, she has experience in knowledge management, but she also demonstrates a strong personal sustainability practice that is driven by her internal motivation, which is infectious. Her ability is matched by her positive personality in that she can make you feel a part of the team. She is always encouraging and positive."
"When we would catch up as friends, Gabrielle asked such insightful, thought-provoking, and business-savvy questions that I asked her if I could hire her as my business coach (this coming from someone who didn't think they needed a business coach). The ensuing year, our sessions always cleared my mind of the fog of entrepreneurial overwhelm, leaving a concrete, constructive way forward. With her open mind and her tactful yet fearless and straight-forward approach, Gabrielle is a master at creating a judgment-free environment focused on problem-solving and leveling up. If you can get a spot with her, you've struck gold!
Gabrielle Lods is a visionary entrepreneur passionate about impact. She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Chemical Engineering and a Master’s degree in Management. Gabrielle is the founder of the Green Condom Club and the International Days directory. Before starting her entrepreneurship journey, she worked in sustainability and knowledge management for both Toyota and Dupont.
As an entrepreneur, she is fascinated by opportunities that allow her to make a difference while she continues to acquire skills that are relevant to her field. Gabrielle continually keeps abreast with the latest industry tech and innovations that promote sustainability and transparency. She has unwaveringly committed years of entrepreneurship to grow her brands in that area. Gabrielle finds every aspect of her work to be abundantly rewarding.
She believes in sourcing the right people and tools to get the job done with minimal effort and maximal results. Gabrielle also supports other impact entrepreneurs to grow their businesses. She is currently based in Switzerland and travels regularly looking for good winds to kitesurf and a quiet place to practice yoga.
