Influence with Damian Bradfield
Dame Stephanie Shirley on Innovation in Business
In this episode, Dame Stephanie Shirley CH (the CH is for Companion of Honour) — a German-British software pioneer, businesswoman, and philanthropist — chats with Damian about making an entirely new kind of business for an untapped category of worker (women with household and caretaking responsibilities) before there was a model for either. And, as remote work proliferates now, she shares what she learned from designing a remote workforce 70 years ago. She also talks about prioritizing mental health, how to better support employees, and how she fought for a future that’s more fair.
Dame Stephanie Shirley's great autobiography is called Let it Go: My Extraordinary Story.
