About Gabi

Hi there! I’m Gabi Glover. Coach, trainer, guide, speaker and motivator. I have worked with thousands of people over the last 12 years.

I believe that confidence and the right speaking and listening skills can not only accelerate professional careers but transform lives—and, yes, potentially make you more money along the way!

Once having been shy and withdrawn, massively frustrated and deeply unhappy, my life then became ingrained in deep rooted transformational and life-long learning. I developed my own approach, work models, and several of my own signature training programmes, including, Cracking Confidence™ (public speaking), Accelerating Achievements™ (goal setting), Taking Intensity of out Interviews™ (performance), Stopping Self-Sabotage™ (awareness) and Anxious to Achieving™ (personal change), among others.

My clients range from early and experienced professionals to c-suite, start-ups, SMEs to freelancers and private individuals.

Whether you’re stuck in a cesspool of frustration or self-doubt, struggling with nerves, judgement, imposter syndrome or simply feeling left behind or not quite where you’d like to be – personally or professionally.

Now what’s stopping you from achieving the success you want?
