About me

My Background

As an Internet pioneer, I helped shape the new media business landscape in Germany with innovative and award-winning concepts and solutions for international corporations and start-ups.

As a certified trainer and coach I started to use my passion for connecting people with different backgrounds to work on goals as a team.

Why I do what I do

When I became a mum at 40, I decided to leave the corporate world, to focus on education and making the world a better place - especially for our children and us working mums. I went back to the university and earned my master's degree in Educational Technologies and Online Learning - all while working part-time and having a toddler running around.

When I left my husband of 22 years, I had to speed up my business idea a little earlier than I thought. That was hard (and still is at times). My motto: Never give up, and we are always stronger together.

Gaby opening the First MIBA Networking Event Mallorca in September 2019

Mallorca is my home by choice. After having lived on different continents I wanted my daughter to grow up in a place that was not as fast-paced and noisy as Berlin, but at the same time a good mix of people from all over the world, who chose the Spanish life-style and the beauty of this island.

 

We moved here four years ago and I now live with my daughter in beautiful Alaró.

As a co-host of the MIBA Networking Mallorca group I became part of the Mums in Business Association, a global movement of more than 40,000 business women with a following of more than 130,000.

 

The network is all about women supporting women and we organise child-friendly networking events every month. 

MIBA understands networking as building relationships.

Working Out Loud? Women Out Loud Circle

Working Out Loud is a method invented by John Stepper, and being practiced in more than 40 countries. A circle means that 4-6 people meet for an hour for 12 weeks in a row following a proven structure, and it is a great way to build relationships that can help you in some way, like achieving a goal or exploring a new topic or skill.

 

Instead of networking to get something, you invest in relationships by sharing and MAKING YOUR WORK VISIBLE. When I started this I could not have imagined how powerful John's method works. A lot of what I do today is a direct result of my working with the WOL method.

The next Women Out Loud Circle will start soon. Please contact me if you are interested in achieving your next big goal within 12 weeks - supported by other women and a powerful method. No costs!

My Working Out Loud Circle of absolutely amazing Business Ladies Eva Maria Danzer,

Karin Ockert-Höfler, Sharon Leigh and Barbara Wietasch. We meet  online every week for one hour, each of us

with a clear goal that will be achieved after 12 weeks through pure WOL magic.

Artificial Intelligence? Chatbots? Virtual Reality?

Yes, I wear more than one hat. My passion for new technologies never died.

That is why you will also find me interviewing really smart people talking about cutting-edge technologies in front of a camera. I am also advocating Ethics in AI and Women in Tech at Seedtoken.io, and as as a member of the Conference Advisory Board at bottish.co. And I do tutorials on innovative technologies like Chatbots and AI. It's pure fun!
