Millennials & Generational Speaker
Dr Eliza Filby is a keynote speaker, writer, and consultant on generations and in particular the new millennials and the changing workplace.
Eliza in her speeches looks at how people’s values and behaviours are changing and the implications for politics, work, consumption, society, and economics.
Having received her Ph.D. in history from the University of Warwick, she lectured in Beijing and at King’s College London where she taught, amongst other things, a history of the 1980s to those born in the 1990s.
Her first book was God and Mrs. Thatcher: The Battle for Britain’s Soul, but by looking at the changing political arena in the eighties, she became more and more interested in the generation that was born in that era – the Millennials.
Eliza founded GradTrain, a business which provides training workshops for graduates helping them develop their soft skills from public speaking to entrepreneurship, and it has gone on to become one of the leading training organisations for universities in the UK.
Eliza is a member of the Women’s Network Forum and serves on the Advisory Board for ‘The Future Group’ at Strategy International. She has also written for the significant broadsheets in the UK from The Guardian, Times, Telegraph as well as reviewed for the Financial Times.
Eliza Filby is a leading authority on the millennial generation, and her speaking topics include –
• How demographics will dominate your business over the next 20 years
• Maturing Millennials: Savers, Parents, and Managers
• Move aside Millennials, here comes Gen Z
• The rise of the Multi-Gen consumer
• Generational Intelligence in the workplace
• The New Age of Old Age
‘Eliza not only has a superb command of the Millennials issue but is a clear, engaging and witty speaker. She held the attention of a diverse audience of senior wealth and asset management professionals and handled the Q&A in a spontaneous and lively manner. Eliza combines academic rigor with the practical experience of a successful businesswoman. It’s a winning combination.’
— Stephen Barber, Head of Group Communications, the Pictet Group
“Eliza gave an incredibly interesting and insightful explanation of what businesses need to know about Generation Z and how they differ from millennials to a highly attentive and engaged audience of Chairmen from FTSE100 businesses.”
— Mike Hepburn – Director of Financial Times 125
‘Eliza gave the opening keynote at the FutureBook conference in December 2017, and she was a huge success. The speech absolutely fitted our brief – Eliza expertly tailored her insights into inter-generational behaviours, and Gen Z in particular, to be relevant and helpful for the book trade. Her presentation style was clear and energised, her attitude passionate and professional, and I’d work again with her in a heartbeat.’
— Molly Flatt, Associate Editor, The Bookseller | FutureBook
‘Eliza has an exceptional ability to help senior executives in their 40’s and 50’s ‘+’ understand the value-systems and life-aspirations that drive millennial and generation z workplace behaviour; what to accommodate and what not to indulge.’
— Peter O’Kane, Chairman Strategy International, the UK’s leading C-level private business network
