DAME STEPHANIE SHIRLEY CH is a workplace revolutionary and successful IT entrepreneur turned ardent philanthropist. In 1962, she founded an all-woman software company that pioneered remote working, upending the expectations of the time. It was ultimately valued at $3 billion and made 70 of her staff millionaires.

Since ‘retiring’, her focus has been on philanthropy, especially autism and IT.

Her TED Talk has had over 2 million views, and her memoir ‘Let It Go’ is being made into a film produced by BAFTA-winning Damian Jones.
