Biography

Celia Sandys, daughter of Sir Winston Churchill's eldest child, is an internationally acclaimed author, journalist, television presenter, and speaker. She is now organizing a series of exclusive tours based on her grandfather's travels around the world.

Ms. Sandys has published five books on various aspects of her grandfather's life. These combine intensive historical research with personal anecdotes, recalled from the time she spent with him in England and abroad. Her most recent book, We Shall Not Fail--The Inspiring Leadership of Winston Churchill, describes the principles of leadership which enabled her grandfather, Britain's Prime Minister from 1940 to 1945, to lead his country and the rest of the free world to overwhelming victory against Nazi Germany and its allies in World War II.

Another of Celia Sandys' books, Chasing Churchill, is the basis for a documentary, which was first aired on PBS in the USA and on the Discovery Channel in the UK in 2008. Presented and narrated by Ms. Sandys, the program describes her grandfather's extensive military, political, and private travels across the world, including the many journeys on which she accompanied him. The documentary includes fascinating interviews with some of those who met Sir Winston Churchill during the course of these travels, or whose parents or grandparents had done so. Celia Sandys herself, someone who knew him as "Grandpapa", painted this riveting portrait of one of the 20th Century's iconic figures.

In great demand as a speaker, Ms. Sandys has fascinated, amused, and enthralled audiences around the world. Drawing on her vast and intimate knowledge of her grandfather's personal and political life, and her own extraordinary network of friends around the globe, her speeches are often accompanied by excerpts from some of her grandfather's speeches as well as photographs and other material drawn from her private collection. Among the more popular of her subjects are "Memories of My Grandfather At Home and Abroad", "The Inspiring Leadership of Winston Churchill", and "Churchill in America".

In association with The Churchill Centre, of which she is a Trustee, Celia Sandys leads regular "Chasing Churchill" tours that follow her grandfather's footsteps.
