"WOW, The Global Townhall is a great forum!  This little enterprise came out just beautiful, it is a work of art and it was outrageous fun as well!  i love your autobiographical musings on the website; your interviews are rich.  I really enjoyed talking with you Gabrielle."  Story Musgrave, Hall of Fame Astronaut.  He is repairing the Hubble Telescope in this picture, having to space walk to complete the repairs.


"I love The Global Townhall.  I would have to say that Gabrielle Reilly is one of the most interesting and dynamic people I have come across for a long time, we should all stand aside and listen to HER stories. I loved the question's she asked and would love to read any thing she has to print, this woman is going place's...  xx A fan Kelly Le Brock."  Kelly LeBrock Interview


"I have read your column (The Global Townhall) with joy!  Great interviews and discussion points.  Thank-you for sharing; it is great work. "  A statement from Gen Caslen when he first discovered Gabrielle Reilly's work.

" Gabrielle is an incredibly talented leader and team builder, with outstanding interpersonal relationship building skills. She is a winner in every way you can imagine.”  General Robert Caslen, 3 Star USA General. 

This second statement from Gen. Caslen was given a dozen years later, after Gabrielle served as a civilian Board Member/Trustee on a prestigious United States Military Board alongside 3 Star Generals, working with world leaders to resolve conflict around the world without having to resort to war.  Indonesia's President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, the King of Bahrain, Prime Minister of Singapore, Colin Powell, General Petraeus etc. are just a few of the alumni.

The international award Gabrielle Reilly won that she wished didn't even exist.  An award for "Exceptional Acts of Courage and Achievement" presented by the Mother and Father of Nirbhaya, the yound woman who was gang raped to death on a bus in New Dehli.

"One of my funnier experiences in Darwin was when I was in the Miss Australia Awards," she (Gabrielle Reilly) said. "We were all dressed up and taken on a beautiful champagne, sunset hovercraft cruise. There was not a toilet on board and many of the girls on board were just busting to go after a glass or two of champagne. The hovercraft pulled up on a sandbank in the middle of nowhere and all you saw was a bunch of contestants running down the beach in formal wear to glamorously squat in one of the few areas with any scrub." (We were all worried about crocs grabbing us.)


"Reilly doesn't know if she will visit Australia before the election - although "A Current Affair" and Today Tonight (and maybe even "The 7.30 Report") will be falling over themselves to get her on camera is she does."


"Gabrielle, it's been really lovely speaking with you.

Gabrielle served as an Executive Board Member at The Command General Staff College (CGSC) Foundation at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas alongside 3 Star Generals of the United States Army. This is a prestigious United States Military Board of which the CGSC alumni include Indonesia's President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, Singapore's Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and the King of Bahrain, His Majesty Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, Gen. Petraeus, Colin Powell, and President Eisenhower.

She also served as the Chair for the International Friendship Gala for the Board, held at the Kauffman Centre for Performing Arts (like the Sydney Opera House) to welcome the prestigious military officers from around the world to the United States.  The Officers come with their families to live on the base for one to two years to study and build important relationships with each other, and therefore other nations. These relationships have prevented conflict around the world over the 100 years it has been running, and this is why Gabrielle is so incredibly passionate about the program.  It has undoubtedly, and very quietly, saved many lives around the world and brought stability amongst nations. 

Consider, in the past 30 years Indonesia quietly and slowly became democratic under President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono's reign, firstly, as a General and then as President.  He attributes much of the success his country has enjoyed, due to his training at the United States military base in Kansas.  It gave him the foundation of understanding a successful democratic country as the Officers are also trained on politics and economics.  His son has also attended the base for a year.

And during this decade of experience, Gabrielle learnt some invaluable lessons working, planning and strategizing alongside the 3 Star Generals who are some of the most well-educated and well-trained people (almost machines the efficiency is so incredible) in the world.  Those lessons include;  how to run a project with ultimate efficiency.   What a strong work ethic looks like (the Generals have worked 5am to 10pm either working, doing physical fitness or educating themselves, their entire career) discipline, a strong code of conduct of character, integrity, honesty at all costs, and of course, timeliness.   It was her greatest honour to have served on this Board among several international boards she served on.
