“I first joined WIBF as a member about 10 years’ ago and am now on the Bristol Branch of the committee. Being involved with WIBF has assisted in heightening my profile with both colleagues and clients. The events are thought provoking and good fun and I would encourage others to join the network and enjoy the many benefits on offer.”
“WIBF is such a great network which provides lots of development and networking opportunities – just what you need when you are at the start of your career. During my time with WIBF I have widened my horizon and have met so many brilliant and inspiring women. I have realised that it’s never too early to think about the Board positions! The quality of speakers that WIBF offer is outstanding and I feel privileged to be part of this amazing network. I am looking forward to next year as the programme for Birmingham looks incredibly exciting!”
“I really enjoyed the Women on Boards events and the high profile speaker events, I always find it inspiring to hear other people’s career journeys and how different twists and turns lead them to where they are now.”
“My passion for change and making things better motivates me to keep going. I believe there is always something more you can be doing and that’s as true for senior leaders as it is for newcomers to the industry. At WIBF, I get a lot of satisfaction from knowing we are supporting all levels of women in the finance industry”
“Women in Banking and Finance is a fantastic network where you can meet like-minded women and obtain new skills. I would absolutely recommend WIBF if you are a female in the finance profession who wants to drive her career forward. A truly wonderful network.”
