Work Reimagined Speakers


Dr Sue Black

Technology Evangelist

Named in the list of top 50 women in tech in Europe and nominated as the 119th most influential woman in the world, Sue is one of the leading tech personalities in the UK today. An award-winning computer scientist, radical thinker, social entrepreneur and public speaker Sue is well known for founding the high profile campaign to save Bletchley Park, much of which was realised through her use of social media, capitalising upon technology as a fitting continuation of Bletchley’s technological legacy.

Sue is a passionate advocate for women in tech, and has spent the last 20 years campaigning for more recognition and support for women in computing. This led to her founding BCSWomen, the UK’s first online network for women in tech, and #techmums, a social enterprise which empowers mums and their families through technology. Sue recently appeared in the BBC Three documentary Girls Can Code, encouraging and mentoring young women into the tech industry.
