We are delighted to welcome Dame Stephanie Shirley as our speaker at our next Women in Wealth event on 29th April.
Dame Stephanie Shirley is a successful IT entrepreneur turned ardent philanthropist and workplace revolutionary.
She set up a software house that pioneered new work practices and changed the position of professional women (especially in hi-tech) along the way. She went on to create a global business and a personal fortune from nothing.
More recently her focus has been on philanthropy and in 2009/10 she served as the first ever national Ambassador for Philanthropy.
Dame Stephanie, known as Steve, is one of the 100 most powerful women in Britain. She took on a man's name when she first started her business in IT, in order to be taken more seriously.
Her memoir Let IT Go was published in October 2012
