Sandro Forte Podcast - Creating Opportunity from Hardship
Click here to listen to Sandro Forte's interview with Dame Stephanie.
'If today’s guest’s story and achievements don’t make your drop, I’m not sure what will. Dame Stephanie Shirley is quite a woman. She arrived in the UK in 1939 with her sister, sent as a refugee by her parents from Germany to escape the Nazi’s. In 1962, a time where being a woman in business was an incredibly challenging time, she set up her first business with £6 and went on to become the CEO of a multi-billion-pound IT consultancy group. Now in her 80s, Dame Shirley is showing no signs of slowing up as her work as a philanthropist is continuing to make millions of pounds for a cause very close to her heart – autism – following the loss of her autistic son at age 35 in 1998.'
