About Chrissie Webber

Who is Chrissie Webber?

An Entrepreneur for 30 years, Chrissie Webber has run 4 businesses the second of which has been powering business potential for over 26 years. This is her management training, consultancy, development coaching and executive mentoring business. Her first business, a designer knitwear company, failed after 7 years and like any successful Entrepreneur she saw it as a massive learning curve, picked herself up and started her second business.Her third business was set up as a short-term project to market a book she had published in 2008 – Weight Loss, Life Gain.

Over the years Chrissie Webber has helped develop business potential for companies such as RBS, Alberto Culver, Universities of Cardiff, Glamorgan and Bangor, to name just a few. Her longest standing client is Castle Leisure who she has been providing management training and coaching services to for over 20 years.

Needing an outlet for her creative side she set up Chrissie Designs Jewellery in 2010. As a hobby Chrissie Webber now designs and makes wire work and semi-precious stone jewellery and bridal wear www.chrissiedesignsjewellery.co.uk. This stretched her own business potential in new directions.

Following two years experience setting up and managing a co-working business centre, The Business Loft for the University of South Wales, she decided to work with her passion and set up the Powering Business Potential website and digital business providing a wide range of online business resources for start-ups and growing businesses.

Through this website Chrissie Webber offers exactly the help she needed but never got in the early years of her business career. Her two other passions are public speaking and writing which both continue to stretch her own business potential. As a writer she has had articles published in newspapers and magazines. Her book ‘Weight Loss, Life Gain’ was published by Accent Press in 2008. A prolific blogger she loves nothing more than writing short anecdotes and tips on business and personal development.

As a public speaker she inspires others to develop their business potential. She has presented at conferences, dinners, business groups and networking events on topics as diverse as Social Media, Motivation, Public Speaking, Business Development and the Language of the Fan. One of the first people in the UK to gain a Foundation Degree in Social Media, she achieved this at the age of sixty, proving that it is never too late to start something new!


Having Chrissie Webber as a business mentor has been what I can only describe as a god send. She is incredibly warm, inspiring and helpful.Starting a business for me was one of the scariest things I’ve done, Chrissie only made that easier and gave me the confidence I needed to develop my business potential and achieve what I have today. Not only did it help that she had years of experience, but more so that she was there to listen and hear my concerns, through this she has turned into a friend. I have no doubt that having funding will help a business get off the ground, but for me having a mentor like Chrissie has been priceless and more valuable.
I attended Chrissie’s ‘Social Media for Business’ workshop. The 3 hour workshop was hugely informative and covered a wide range of social media platforms. Because the topic of social media is so vast, Chrissie gave us a fantastic overview of why and how social media would be applicable to our businesses and, if we were a little more social media savvy, how to use it more effectively through scheduling and ways to avoid wasting unnecessary hours in a social media vortex! The attendees at the workshop ranged from complete novice through to seasoned social media converts and there was something for each and every one of us to take away and implement in to our businesses. The e-mail that was sent afterwards listing the social media resources was also very informative and helpful – a fantastic e-mail to continually refer to. Thank you Chrissie, brilliant workshop that is now ‘Powering My Business Potential’.

Chrissie saved me many £k’s, of money and years of grief before I started this Business. I had spent many hours of Due Diligence on buying a franchise when Chrissie gave me one piece of very sound advice. I’m glad I listened to her and took action. Thank you Chrissie!
