Public Speaking - Fabian Dattner

"(Her) speech is a burning fire" - Swinburne University


Fabian Dattner, one of Australia's most outstanding speakers, has a fire in the belly - a passion - that is a rare gift to audiences.

Fire her passion into your next speaking function. Inspire those you wish to engage.

She speaks simply, eloquently and powerfully about strategic leadership, alignment, vision, purpose and values. Fabian is at the forefront of organisational development with leading Australian organisations and promotes the need for change, offering a sustainable approach to business and organisation.

Rather than 'off the shelf' speeches, Fabian takes time to know each and every audience, shaping her presentation into an informative, entertaining and intimate conversation.

Fabian is well known to many Australians. She is founding partner of Dattner Grant, highly regarded leadership experts, and founder of Compass, a national leadership initiative for women. She is also founder of Homeward Bound, a global initiative seeking to build a global collaboration of women in or taking up leadership roles with a view to influencing policy and decision making. The first coterie of women are already working together, and in December 2016, 77 women went on an expedition to Antarctica. She has travelled Australia for over a decade and her passion has led her to write three books and hundreds of articles. She has been three times a finalist in the TELSTRA Business Women’s Awards (last in 2016) and has been selected as one of the NAB 2016 '100 Women of Influence'.

Be touched by Fabian's knowledge, vision and pragmatic guidance at your next special event, conference or social club gathering. You won't be disappointed.
