BIO:

Lizzie’s work primarily centres on the impact tech, creative industries, and media have on education, society and business, with a specific focus on the under 30’s.

With a background in journalism (Visit USA Travel Writer of the Year 2005), she has a strong foundation in communications, including being a speechwriter for central government at the Department of Health and editor of Pride London magazine.

A two-time TEDx speaker, Lizzie often give talks on gender equality, engaging young people, the power of curiosity, and Artificial Intelligence bias. See more talk topics here.

She also works closely with the charity Young Enterprise and is the host of their Tenner Challenge Awards Ceremony (2018 & 2019).

Her platforms:

Consulting: Surfacing Purpose helps businesses and corporations work better and more effectively by breaking down costly silos, building identity and creating meaningful brands around values.

As founding partner of Surfacing Purpose Lizzie is an adviser on strategy and engagement, helping organisations to better, and more effectively, smash internal silos, surface ideas and focus purpose and create brands that customers will love.

Always asking the hard questions, she quickly but effectively identifies better ways of working and communicating internally and externally, helping create roadmaps for meaningful and impactful change.

She’s also advises organisations and companies on how to onboard young people, as well as consulting on how to best prepare for a blended generational workforce and the role tech will have. This is ever more pressing as we see Baby Boomers, Gen X, Millennials and Gen Z all occupying the workplace.

Their ethos is ‘Doing Production Differently’ and they empower young and rising talent, alongside industry veterans.


The Z-X Spectrum: The popular podcast ‘The Z-X Spectrum’ (that Lizzie co-host’s with Brandon), is now produced by Studio BE, which centres around the intergenerational view in technology, media and the digital space. They also take The Z-X Spectrum to conferences, for example, at the hugely prestigious media industry event, the Children’s Media Conference. So if you want to benefit from having The Z-X Spectrum on your conference lineup, get in touch.
