Amy Selwyn - CEO, NewsXchange
A recommendation for Elizabeth Filippouli really only requires one word: WOW. I have had the great privilege of working with Elizabeth in the evolution and development of News Xchange, the international news industry's premier annual conference and conversation. I personally handpicked Elizabeth for the News Xchange Executive Team because of her fantastic energy, her creativity, her willingness to think things through in entirely new ways, her commitment to excellence and her open, collaborative style of working. Elizabeth brings passion
and fierce intelligence to her work. She understands news, media, technology and innovation, and she is great champion for thinking globally and imaginatively. Her standard is of the highest order and she delivers every time.
I recommend Elizabeth in the highest possible terms. She is a real doer and a real mover and shaker! She makes great things happen! And she is absolutely fantastic as a colleague and a team member. In a word, Elizabeth Filippouli is a WOW.
Salim Amin - Chairman at Africa24 Media
She belongs to this rare breed of people who can see the wider picture of our world and approach things from a global perspective while understanding cultural and other differences. She has lived in multiethnic/multicultural societies, acquiring profound understanding of deeply rooted cultural habits and traditions. Elizabeth's initiatives are very impressive, especially as through her dedication and commitment to hard work she achieves success within a short time frame!
Peter Bisanz - Global Agenda Councils, World Economic Forum
The presentations today could not have gone any better. As a result – I wanted to again convey our sincere gratitude from everyone at the Forum and especially the GAC team. I think the deliverables you have given us with continue to spark many conversations in the weeks/months to come. Thank you so much for all of your amazing work on this project!

I have known and worked with Elizabeth for the best part of 10 years during which she was a CNN World Report contributor and delegate, a CNN stringer and anchor/correspondent for Al Jazeera. Elizabeth is an energetic, smart and highly talented print and broadcast journalist with a passion for covering the world and improving global journalism. She possesses the highest editorial integrity and cares passionately about the future of her profession.

I would like to thank you for a successful and very empowering workshop today! I look forward to more joint events in the very near future.
George Frost, Producer
To you and your absolutely superb team a massive massive thank you. It was a truly superb event and an incredibly special way to collect my father’s, Sir David Frost, last award. All of the workshops were fabulous and everyone that I spoke to was similarly blown away by the whole event.
Dr Roger Hayes - Senior Advisor APCO Worldwide
I have noticed, working in and having lived in a variety of countries, that many people have the economic and political knowledge required. Few also combine the cultural dimension.
Elizabeth is good on strategy and process, not a combination of skills often in evidence. She can be charming and tough in equal measure and is particularly keen on setting and meeting deadlines, essential for any global coordination or business management role. Her passion is collaboration between civil society,(including media), politics and business, recognising that many of the world’s issues can only be solved by these different groups engaging together.
Richard Peel - President UK Media Society
Elizabeth's extensive experience as a broadcast journalist coupled with her networking skills and magical personality make her a formidable operator. She has strong business acumen, an ability to identify opportunities and an extensive knowledge of politics and business. Elizabeth is also conscientious and determined. I would thoroughly recommend her as an essential contact or business partner.
Rodney Pinder President, International News Safety Institute
Elizabeth Filippouli is one of those rarest of people - super efficient, effective, charming and terrific to work with. She organised an event for the International News Safety Institute, taking all the work on her own shoulders, and it turned out to be the most successful we have ever staged! She is now on our Executive Board and we're benefiting in a much broader sense from her ideas, energy and extremely amiable company.
Michael Bland - MD at Michael Bland Communication Consultancy
Elizabeth is a total, tireless, dedicated professional, while also warm and friendly.
Stephan Chambers - Director MBA degree at Saїd Business School, University of Oxford
Thank you all for your amazing work on the GAC project. It was an honour to be associated with your work and to see how delighted WEF were. I have no doubt that the school, and future generations of our students, will benefit from the association. Marc’s guidance and mentorship were invaluable – all in all a really great job.
Vladimir Krasojevic - Leadership Partner at Gartner
