‘Eliza’s Millennials project was both inspiring and enlightening and her findings have been invaluable to Toni & Guy and label.m….we have loved working with her. Each individual involved in the Millennials project came away with an entirely positive outlook and I can truly say it’s made our company even more encouraged to continue to succeed.’

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 rigour with the practical experience of a successful businesswoman. It’s a winning combination.’

‘It is a near impossible feat to talk about millennials or marketing without sounding ignorant or patronising. Dr Eliza Filby is fresh, compelling and relevant. She is able to command her audience’s attention with ease and her insights leave you questioning everything you thought you knew.’ 

Richard Ascott, Creative Agency, JustSoLondon

Eliza has an exceptional grasp of what is happening intergenerationally – the Gens X, Y and Z especially. She has complete grasp of her data whilst being an excellent warm communicator.’

“Eliza Filby is one of the most original scholars of her generation. As much at home in contemporary politics as in history, she ranges over a vast field with an acute intelligence and sovereign command of her material.”
