"Highly inspirational, lovingly personal, and an energetic bundle of passion. Fabian is the best speaker on leadership I have ever heard. She brought tears into the eyes of her audience, while leaving them highly energized and ready to rumble."

Gerald Babel-Sutter, Founder & CEO, Urban Future Global Conference

"Fabian walked into a room of 75 of our most senior leaders from across Latin America and the United States and within minutes had captured their hearts and minds. The room immediately felt different. Fabian has a unique and unmatched ability to find the moments of truth that need to emerge for real change to follow; she expertly draws critical insights from below the surface and places them in the spotlight; and she has a gift for cultivating deep optimism in ourselves, in each other, and in the future. I have seen Fabian do this with many audiences, over many, many years – never more powerfully than with our team in January 2023."

Adam Smith, Senior Vice President , Impact, Laureate University

"The Quest Global Marketing Leadership Team sincerely appreciated your coaching, teaching, and guidance last week. You facilitated and directed us toward more constructive collaboration, communication, and overall leadership. Back in our everyday work rhythms, it feels like a part of our team is now missing!"

Samuel Douglas, Center Manager, Quest Global

"I have done leadership development over the last 9 years and can say hands down this is the best experience twice over. Such a privilege."

International Marketing Executive, Global Engineering Firm

"Profoundly relevant. Has given me a whole level of insight into working in a remote environment in how I help to build a more constructive and calmer engaged team, and to my great surprise, how I do this at home. Would never have thought this way of thinking and working even existed."

Senior Executive, Global Marketing Team

"Just love working Fabian. Such deep expertise, I trust her deeply and always get further insights when we work together."

Global Head of Sales Operations, Engineering Firm
