Let It Go

Dame Stephanie Shirley CH


Let It Go charts a trailblazing career as an entrepreneur and an incredible personal story. In this moving memoir, one of the most inspirational women of our times tells her own uplifting story and explains why giving her wealth away – letting it go – has brought her infinitely more happiness and fulfilment than acquiring it in the first place. A multi-part TV series of the book is currently in development and expected to air on one of the major streaming services.

“An extraordinary tale of creativity and resilience.”

Ein unmögliches Leben

Dame Stephanie Shirley


A German language edition of Let It Go was published in September 2020 by Goldmann Verlagsgruppe Random House. The title roughly translates as An Incredible Life, and the subtitle: the extraordinary story of a woman who broke men’s rules and went her own way. The German publishers omitted the CH at the end of Steve’s name, feeling this rare and exclusive British honour may confuse German readers.

So To Speak

Dame Stephanie Shirley CH


Covid-19 stopped us all in our tracks, and life as we knew it was on hold. For Dame Stephanie, it was an opportunity to gather her favourite speeches into a book, something she had wanted to do for a long time. The collection includes speeches made to charities, high net worth potential donors, women’s organisations, students, public and private sector audiences and Jewish groups. Dating from the 1980s to the present decade, the speeches demonstrate Dame Stephanie’s remarkable foresight and the pioneering nature of her work. The result is an inspiring and wide-ranging collection, beautifully bound in golden hardback.

“Through her genius and ingenuity, Dame Stephanie pioneered a path for women. Get a copy of this incredible book and give one to everybody you know.”
Nicola Mendelsohn CBECBE, VP for EMEA, Facebook
