Having run the family business and her own consulting firm for more than 15 years, Fabian Dattner joined forces with Jim Grant at the end of 1997 to form DGL International (now Dattner Grant). At the time she was already one of Australian's best-known female entrepreneurs, speakers and leadership commentators.

She has been cited by Australia's business magazine The Bulletin as one of the country's top 100 contributors, has twice been a runner-up in the state Telstra Businesswomen's Awards, and is an Australia Day Ambassador. Dattner regularly contributes to various media around Australia on women in leadership, women in STEMM, and leadership ethics and engagement. She has authored several books on leadership.
