New Ways Of Working | Dame Stephanie Shirley CH | BoS Europe 2019

Dame Stephanie ‘Steve’ Shirley CH // Freelance Programmers

Dame Stephanie is 50 years ahead of her time. While remote work is becoming more popular now than ever before, Dame Stephanie’s company was remote only from the outset. No Slack, no Twitter, no World Wide Web! So how did she do it?

In this talk from BoS Europe 2019, Dame Stephanie discusses some of the lessons she’s learned in starting, building, growing and exiting one of Europe’s most successful companies. You will hear why some of her core values – trust, a belief in strong culture, valuing outputs over inputs, a sense of values and determination – are as critical to building a successful business today as they were in the jet age.
