Named as one of the 100 most powerful women in Britain, Dame Stephanie (Steve) Shirley CH has been called an icon, an inspiration, and a pioneer.  She’s a global businesswoman, and was the first female President of the British Computer Society. She made 70 of her staff millionaires at no cost to anyone, but herself. She received a Companion of Honour, one of only 65 people worldwide to receive such a recognition. Her memoir Let IT Go, which was described by Michael Skapinker from the Financial Times as ‘an entire business course in a book sold 20,000 copies, and is being re-released and made into a film.

Given her incredible achievements, and the challenges and opportunities she’s faced in business, we are incredibly excited to host a Fireside Chat + Q&A between Dame Stephanie, and TechHub Founder & CEO Elizabeth Varley where she will talk about her life story, her memoir Let IT Go, and will answer your questions.

To find out more about Stephanie Shirley’s story, which begins with her 1939 arrival in Britain as an unaccompanied Kindertrasport refugee, and goes on to document the beginning of her software house Freelance Programmers in 1962 – work that pioneered new practices that changed the position of professional women, visit her website. You can also watch her TED talk, which ended with a standing ovation from more than a thousand of the world’s most recognised technical entrepreneurs, thinkers, creators and doers, and has received 1.9m views, here.

Thanks to our partners, your free ticket will also include a free copy of Let IT Go and we’ll end the event with time for some attendees to meet Dame Stephanie and have her sign your copy,
