About

Anne-Marie Imafidon is a woman on a mission. A child prodigy who had received degrees from prestigious universities on both sides of the Atlantic by the time she was 20, she is campaigning to get more women into Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM). [Forbes]

Eldest child in ‘Britain’s Brainiest Family’ [Sky News].  “I like Maths, Technology and helping others” – @aimafidon

Anne-Marie has always been interested in business, Maths and technology. Her rather unique set of achievements include passing two GCSEs aged ten (Mathematics & ICT), being the youngest girl ever to pass A-level computing (aged 11) and being one of the youngest to be awarded a Masters’ degree in Mathematics & Computer Science by the University of Oxford, aged 20. She was the UK IT Industry & British Computer Society’s Young IT Professional of the Year in 2013, Red Magazine’s ‘Woman to Watch’ 2014, won a Points of Light award from the UK Prime Minister in October 2014 & was named the 8th Most Influential woman in IT in 2016. Anne-Marie was awarded an MBE in the 2017 New Years Honours for services to young women and STEM sectors.

Anne-Marie is Head Stemette and co-founder of Stemettes – an award-winning social enterprise inspiring the next generation of females into Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics roles via a series of events and opportunities. In 4 years just under 15,000 girls across the UK, Ireland and Europe have had attended Stemette experiences. As part of the initiative she has also co-founded Outbox Incubator: the world’s first tech incubator for teenage girls. She sits on the boards of Durham University’s Computer Science Department, Urban Development Music Foundation and Inspirational YOU.

Previous work at Goldman Sachs, Hewlett-Packard, Deutsche Bank and Lehman Brothers mean she has amassed a wealth of experiences – this blog will chart the highlights of her new ones. Sometimes she writes & speaks elsewhere.

If you’d like her to speak at your event, email tim@speakerscorner.co.uk.
