Ipswich Building Society will host their annual general meeting on the 26th March 2014, from 6.30pm at Wherstead Park. Distinguished philanthropist Dame Stephanie Shirley will be the guest speaker at the meeting.
Dame Stephanie Shirley, listed in the BBC Woman's Hour Top 100 most powerful women in Britain, will be talking through her incredible life story; from when she arrived alone in Britain as a five year old child, to how she created a global IT business, and how important it is to embed the idea of giving back to society into business culture.
The meeting will provide members with the chance to hear how the Society performed in 2013 and how the Society has continued to grow their capital base while achieving a healthy profit. Most importantly, the AGM will allow members to vote on behalf of their own and the community's interests, rather than in shareholder's interests.
