“Eliza Filby was invited to address a gathering of senior women working in financial risk in the City. She gave a fascinating and wide-ranging talk about female leadership in politics and its relevance to women working in the business world. Eliza was entertaining, engaging, and relevant and I would not hesitate to recommend her for other speaking engagements. She sparked off a lively discussion and was a great catalyst for future events we have now held as result.”
