Barney Gibbens Memorial Lecture 2022 with Dame Stephanie ‘Steve’ Shirley CH – The rise of F International
26th September 2022 from 6:00pm — 9:00pm • Zoom
You are invited to our third Barney Gibbens Memorial Lecture in commemoration of our founding Master. The virtual event will begin with a welcome from the Master Alistair Fulton before he introduces our guest speaker Past Master Dame Stephanie Shirley CH where she will share with us her reminiscences from the first ten years of her company, F International.
In July 1939, Dame Stephanie arrived in Britain at the age of five as a Kindertransport child refugee. She went on to found the all woman software company that pioneered remote working and redefined the expectations and opportunities for working women at that time. It was ultimately valued at almost $3 billion and made 70 of her staff millionaires. She was the first female President of the British Computer Society in 1989 and our Master later in the same year that we gained Livery Status in 1992
