What is this event in a nutshell?
Many of us at some point in our careers come to a point where we think, is this it? Where we are aspiring for something new and different but aren’t sure how to get there or where to even start. We are leaders in our respected fields, have climbed the corporate ladder, but are now looking to start a fresh. This sounds scary – starting from the beginning – but it doesn’t have to be.

What is this event in a nutshell?

Dame Stephanie Shirley (84) arrived in Britain in 1939 as an unaccompanied child refugee from Nazi Europe. She took her maths degree at evening classes. She is now the most successful tech entrepreneur you never heard of. She founded a pioneering software house back in 1962 as a company of women, a company for women. Its eventual flotation led to 70 of her 8,500 staff becoming millionaires, and the company was co-owned by the staff with a value of around $3bn when it was acquired in 2007.
