“A richer life for me means having a curious mind and always, always asking questions.”
An author, academic and expert in generational change.
Eliza Filby began her career as an academic, graduating from the University of Warwick with a PhD in Contemporary History in 2010 and going on to teach undergraduates at the University of Renmin and King’s College London. She published her first book, God and Mrs Thatcher: The Battle for Britain’s Soul in 2015, shortly after founding GradTrain, a company which provides communication and public speaking training to graduates.
Today, Eliza writes and speaks on the history of generations, exploring and explaining the shifts in our societies that define cross-generational relations. Eliza has worked with everyone from VICE media to the Royal Household, and has spoken at the Financial Times CEO forum, the EU’s Human Rights Forum and the UK’s House of Lords Select Committee on intergenerational unfairness. Her writing regularly appears in British newspapers, including The Times, The Guardian and the Financial Times. Eliza is currently working on a forthcoming book about ageing in the 21st century.
