Anne Corstorphine, Managing Director of City Spirit St Paul’s today announces her appointment as the Chair of the Women in Business Association (WIBA).
Anne is a woman on a mission – to share her extensive business acumen with other women so that they can become more successful and achieve their goals. Anne runs a number of successful businesses including Birmingham based serviced office provider City Spirit St Paul’s and Coaching Spirit – a business and personal coaching company that she launched specifically to share her passion for helping others achieve.
Anne’s extensive career has been built on a desire to encourage others to reach their potential by building a career based on integrity, trust and service. Her core business interest – City Spirit St Paul’s is just one example. It is managed around a genuine customer-centric, transparent business methodology and a ‘can do’ attitude that permeates through her entire team.
Commenting on her appointment, Anne says:
“I have been a member of WIBA for nine years. During that time I have seen it develop considerably and today it has over 90 members, professional, career-minded women based in the Midlands looking to share business and connections. Next year WIBA will celebrate its 20th anniversary, I see this as the perfect opportunity to take the Association forward into the next phase of its life and take its rightful place as the recognised voice of women in business. It is great to be able to give something back after all these years to what I believe to be the top association for women in business. I will be focusing on developing the Association by adding value to our existing members, launching new initiatives and attracting more members.
“Business has been incredibly challenging over the past twelve months and it is vital that WIBA responds to the current issues and brings support and opportunity to its members through networking. An exciting, event calendar is planned for 2010 which includes business development, personal development, social and sporting events. Inspiring guest speakers and interactive sessions will help members improve core skills and generate more business.”
“I fully intend to ensure that we celebrate the achievements of women in business as an association and most importantly to celebrate the individual achievements of our members. Finally, I want to ensure that we all have some fun!”
