Jacqueline de RojasSpeaking during her keynote about digital inclusion, Jacqueline de Rojas CBE said, "We need to more to make sure no one is left behind."

"Diversity matters because equality is a noble cause, it's good for business and to create a digital world that works for everyone."

Dame Stephanie Shirley 1Speaking during her keynote, Dame Stephanie Shirley CH said, "I pioneered the concept of women returners and began a crusade for women - a company of women, a company for women, and early social business."

"For years, I was the 'first woman this' and the 'only woman that'...I couldn't even open the company's bank account without getting my husband's permission..."

"Never ever take today's freedoms lightly."

Malmgren took the stage to talk about the holographi datasphere and how it affects the future of technologists. She explained why we shouldn't be fearful of technology, saying, "Robotics augment humans, not replace humans.”

Attendees were also treated to refreshments and had the chance to meet the conference's very own robot, Eva the Sanbot. Eva can read every gesture and pose, and guess people's names, ages and genders with your fingerprint.

Having arrived in Britain as an unaccompanied child refugee in 1939, she started what became Xansa plc (now part of the Sopra Group) on her dining room table with £6 in 1962. In 25 years as its Chief Executive, she developed it into a leading business technology group, pioneering new work practices and changing the position of professional women along the way. Her Dameship in the Millennium honours was for services to IT.

During her talk, Shirley said, "A healthy selfishness to ensure my own self preservation & development."

"I believe in the beauty of work when we do it properly & with humility."

"Making it happen requires self belief, energy and hard work."

Speaking about the next generation of technologists, Shirley said, “Girls have to understand the obstacles in front of them and know that they are surmountable...go round, go over, go under, go elsewhere”

Shirley also inspired attendees with her career advice, saying, “Find something that you’re really interested in, scares you a bit and go for it. Enjoy it!”

Concluding the event, delegates and speakers alike took part in a speed mentoring session, opened by Vanessa Vallely, Managing Director, WeAreTechWomen, who instilled the importance of mentoring.

Speakers and senior individuals joined delegates for an hour of mentoring to discuss career goals and ask specific questions.
