Dame Stephanie Shirley

Special guest

Dame Stephanie Shirley is a pioneering information technology (IT) entrepreneur and one of the United Kingdom's leading philanthropists. She started an early business technology group on her dining room table with £6 in 1962.

Motivated by her own experiences, Dame Stephanie focuses her giving in the two fields she knows and cares most about - information technology, her chosen discipline, and autism, her late son's condition.

As an avid philanthropist, she is interested in shaping a more professional charity sector and, at the same time, Dame Stephanie receives an enormous amount of satisfaction from giving.
