An Evening with Dame Stephanie Shirley 

How To: Academy presents an inspirational evening with Dame Stephanie Shirley CH, who arrived in England alone as a Kindertransport refugee from Nazi Germany and became one of Britain’s most eminent technologists.

In conversation with Hannah MacInnes, Dame Shirley will look back on her extraordinary life – from the tragic death of her son, Giles, to her pioneering work at the forefront of the computing revolution.
