Fee Band

  • IT & Online Business, AI & Robotics, Diversity, Energy & Sustainability, Social Responsibility

With a career that has taken in foreign policy research, tech company strategy, consultancy research and journalism, Stephanie is uniquely placed to consider the wide-ranging implications of living through a technological revolution. Looking at both the historical and political precedents, she considers what past upheavals have to teach us about AI, data privacy, policy making, cybersecurity and all aspects of the commercial and social future.


Stephanie Hare is a researcher, broadcaster and author focused on technology, political risk and business. A former Director at Accenture Research, Stephanie has gone on to become a regular contributor and  commentator for the Financial Times, BBC World News, and Radio 4, where she has covered topics ranging from China’s Huawei Scandal, to cryptocurrency, to the gender pay gap.

In her book Technology is Not Neutral: A Short Guide to Technology Ethics (recognised as a Financial Times best summer book of 2022), Stephanie provides a practical overview of how to create and use tools and technologies to maximise benefits and minimise harm. She co-presents the BBC programme AI:Decoded, where she analyses the week’s top stories in artificial intelligence. 

With an understanding of both the policy and the engineering sides of technology, in her talks Stephanie draws from a range of perspectives to cover the multilayered questions about the future. She covers everything from biometrics and AI in HR, digital footprints and the 'datafication' of children’s identity to consensus in policy-making, spending on cybersecurity and accountability. 

Previously Stephanie worked at Accenture, Palantir, and Oxford Analytica, and held the Alistair Horne Visiting Fellowship at St Antony’s College, Oxford. She holds a PhD and MSc from the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) and a BA from the University of Illinois at Urbana- Champaign, including a year at the Université de la Sorbonne (Paris IV).
