Chloe Combi’s debut nonfiction title Generation Z: Their Voices, Their Lives (Random House 2015) is a shocking, illuminating, heart breaking and sometimes hilarious journey through the lives of the teenagers born between 1994 and 2005 as told in their own voices.
Its impact as an important and timely book’ (Anthony Horowitz) has already seen Chloe Combi speaking at many high profile events including Google Talk, Edinburgh Book Festival, Latitude Festival and the London Festival of Education.
Chloe has continued her work with Generation Z and Generation A, emerging as one of the foremost experts on young people, having interviewed thousands. Her current podcast, You Don’t Know Me (Podimo/Mermade) has been critically raved about, given 5* in The Times with podcasts of the week in the Guardian, iPaper, Financial Times, Telegraph, The Week, Sunday Post – with particular praise given to her incisive and skilled interview technique.
Chloe writes for a number of publications including the Times, Guardian, Vice and the TES, and has a regular column with The Telegraph on the lives of Generation Z.
Chloe has spoken around the world about her work and advises some brands, companies and governments. Her areas of expertise are Generation Z, Generation A, young people’s relationships to institutions, education, technology, social media, self-esteem, relationships, identity and the future.
Her approach is both to identify trends and also prepare for them, with a focus on big ideas and solutions rather than the problems. A skilled and charismatic communicator, Chloe can bring enormous value to events, corporate affairs and audiences interested in a rapidly changing world.

Chloe’s talk at Google in London was brilliantly informative, helping us to understand today’s teenagers and how they view the world around them. A knowledgeable speaker, I would be very happy to host Chloe to speak again.
Chloe’s presentations about the Generation Z not only inspired us but also gave us food for thought. Our employees were excited – not least because of her authentic and vivid presentation style. She enriched our Management meeting.
Chloe was just right for our pre-dinner slot. People were talking about her contribution right up until the end of the conference and emails continue to fly!
