Ep 7: New ways of working (with Dame Stephanie Shirley)

***Don't forget : Business of Software Europe is on 23-24 March 2020 in Cambridge UK.  Get your tickets at***

Dame Stephanie is 50 years ahead of her time. While remote work is becoming more popular now, Dame Stephanie’s company was remote only from the outset. Forget Slack, this was a time when there was still a decade before email was invented and almost 30 years before Tim Berners Lee invented the World Wide Web.

In this interview, Mark and Dame Stephanie will discuss some of the lessons she’s learned (often the hard way) 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.
