We’re delighted to welcome Dr Gabrielle Walker, BBC presenter and Chief Scientist at Xyntéo to Chair our Energy for all discussion on 24 February 6.30pm.

At strategic advisory firm Xyntéo, Gabrielle works with CEOs and senior executives from a wide range of global companies on reinventing growth and creating business models that are fit for the future.

She has been Professor at Princeton University, Climate Change Editor at Nature, Features Editor at New Scientist, has presented programmes and series for BBC radio and television and has written for a host of international newspapers and magazines.  She has written four books including co-authoring the bestselling book The Hot Topic, covering the energy transition and climate change, which was described by Al Gore as “a beacon of clarity” and by The Times as “a material gain for the axis of good”.

A self-confessed ice addict, Gabrielle has also made more than a dozen trips to both poles. She has climbed trees in the Amazon rainforest, swum with piranhas, been sneezed on by a hump-backed whale, dived with David Attenborough on the Great Barrier Reef, hooked lava out of a live volcano, and flown in zero gravity. She has a PhD in Natural Sciences from Cambridge University.

‘Energy for all’ will discuss global energy access and inspirational ways to make it a reality. Find out more.

This is a public discussion and all are welcome to attend. We hope to see you there.
