About This Episode
In our latest episode in collaboration with the University of London’s School of Advanced Study, Michael is joined by Dr Eliza Filby, Generations Expert & Historian of Contemporary Values.
In this special series with global leaders, writers and campaigners, we will be reflecting on more than a year of challenge and change as we ask the question: how has COVID changed us?
A generations expert and historian in contemporary values, Eliza specialises in ‘Generational Intelligence’, enabling companies to understand generational shifts within politics, society and the workplace, while looking at how demographic disruption is transforming the world as we know it.
From Baby Boomers to Generation Alpha, Eliza examines how the traditional lifecycle is being reordered and remade in the 21st Century: from the impact of us living longer, to what we can expect in the post-pandemic age.
