Professor Sue Black OBE

“If I can do it, so can you!” This was the opening line of Prof. Sue Black’s speech at the second annual Girls in Tech Catalyst Conference in London on 4th September. She took us along on her incredible journey from a fascination with technology to saving Bletchley Park, becoming a catalyst for change for equal rights, paying it forward through #Techmums, and inspiring the next generation of computer scientists as a professor at Durham University. Sue had a profound impact on all of us through her contagious passion, optimism, and “prescription for success.” Professor Black is not only an extraordinary academic, technology evangelist, and social entrepreneur, but she is also a warm, open, and friendly human being who inspired and motivated our attendees not only on stage, but also off-s

Dr Sue Black’s brilliance and determination resonate with her audiences in a humble, motivating and inspirational way.  While most of us will never earn a doctorate in computer science or save a historical site, you can’t walk away from Dr Sue’s message without being motivated to make a difference in your business, family or community.

“From the moment that Pam Ayres walked onto the stage, she captivated her audience – of 1400 people – with humour, wit, and a perfect sense of timing……….. This session was one of my highlights of Hay Festival this year, because I laughed so hard that my stomach ached for hours afterwards and it is wonderful to witness a true craftswoman practice her art.“
