"Ready or Not, Generation Z is Here"
Join Global Brands and 80,000 attendees who have utilised Alexia's knowledge on Generation Z to keep ahead of the curve.
Described by the NZ Herald as the Headmistress of Gen Z, Alexia is the founder of GirlBoss NZ - New Zealands's largest organisation for young women. In 5 years, GirlBoss has grown to 13,500 members and programmes have been implemented in more than 100 schools across New Zealand, Australia and the Cook Islands.
Alexia’s mission is to get women to the table - the boardroom table that is, and she believes the decisions made while young are crucial in paving the way.
Alexia is a living, breathing example of how Gen Z are making their mark on the world, becoming a Deloitte Global Scholar, National Geographic Explorer, and a Facebook Leadership Fellow. She studied Leadership for Change at the University of Cambridge and is currently studying towards her Masters in Emerging Technologies.
Alexia has received over 30 Awards for her work including being named the 2019 Prime Minister’s Pacific Youth Award Winner, Pacific Young Entrepreneur of the Year 2020, Semi-Finalist for Young New Zealander of the Year, the Most Influential NZ Woman under 25 at the Westpac Women of Influence Award, 2021 Commonwealth Covid-19 Hero, Forbes 30 under 30 2021, and Finalist for World Young Entrepreneur of the Year 2020
Alexia was also awarded a Queen's Young Leader Award for Services to the Commonwealth by Her Majesty, The Queen, at Buckingham Palace. She was selected from over 20,000 nominations and is the youngest Commonwealth Citizen to hold this honour.
Through her jaw-dropping stories, Alexia proves that you are never too young (or too short) to create change.
"Nothing could be more important than the work (Alexia) is doing for the next generation. Her voice is important to empower other youth"
“I’ve been going to HR conferences for over 20 years, so I’ve seen a whole generation of talks about generations. I’ve always been a bit cynical about them. But Alexia provided a practical, insightful, funny, nuanced, and original presentation about Gen Z. NASA, David Beckham, Jamie Oliver, and the Queen have all had a chat to Alexia Hilbertidou about Gen Z and her work at GirlBoss NZ - maybe you should too!"

"Alexia has superb youth voice. Her expertise of Gen Z enabled the audience to build greater clarity on the “why” and “how” of the radical rethinking required for a new mindset across our communities."
