To me Anne is the Tony Robbins for Entrepreneurial Women Executives!
Your C.O.R.E. Initiative will touch millions. Anne has the insight, passion and depth of knowledge to help you prosper personally while your business grows. She's my most trusted advisor for my businesses and my non-profit organization

Anne is one of the top examples of leadership I've encountered. She adeptly uses industry expertise combined with excellent mentoring skills to help employees, associates, senior management and organizations reach their full potential. She is integrative, by nature, with very strong communication skills and ability to work with people at all levels within the organization. Working with Anne is not only an honor but a pleasure. Having Anne as such a superior, mentor and professional colleague is really an unforgetable experience.

Anne demonstrated that unique blend of an inspirational leader and result-orientated manager. As head of her department, Anne's staff quickly engaged her as a trustworthy and transparent leader with a clear vision and an exciting and innovative direction for her global group. Anne showed that she cared for her people, and they reciprocated by demonstrating their dedication to her. Anne is clearly one of the finest leaders I've had in my group.
My team had the pleasure of working with Anne on a global publications plan. We enjoyed our experience, primarily because she brought a positive and collaborative attitude as team leader. Anne is highly professional and knows her stuff! I strongly recommend her to any type of team or project.
TIFFANY THORNE, VICE PRESIDENT
Anne, you are to me what I am to everybody else. I was completely overwhelmed in the multitude of responsibilities that I have. I would still get things done but experienced frequent periods of burnout. I rarely had time for myself or just to simply rest. I am able to properly channel and balance my responsibilities and my life in general through employing effective C.O.R.E. principles.
ALISON LAST, PROFESSIONAL COACH
Anne, you are so inspiring!
MICHELLE JONES, HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONAL
After experiencing the wonderful coaching and connections from the First CCI (now C.O.R.E.) Training...I am using the skills and language that I have learned in my everyday life. I love C.O.R.E! Thank you so much for your labor of love!
US Department of Labor
Regarding the Leadership Training: I have been on all the calls. Anne provides a wealth of information that improves not just the business, but also the lives of its employees.
I’ve realized how ill equipped many people who call themselves coaches can really be. Figuring out how to help someone come up with a goal that can be met with successful progress and a powerful mindset shift and reframe in 50 minutes or less is an art and science for every executive.
TONY HUSTED, INTERNATIONAL
I knew from the moment I met Anne that she was a great Coach.
ALEX MIRANDA, CEO

I would, without reservation, recommend Anne as a consultant, trainer and business partner. She gives all she has to develop others in life and professional areas. I made a major shift in my business because of her coaching and have become more profitable and focused in the process.
PRITESH GANDHI, VICE PRESIDENT MEDICAL AFFAIRS
Anne's extensive global medical information expertise enables development and implementation of strategic, operational and capability plans for small, mid and large size pharmaceutical companies.
DOUG LAIDLAW, PHD, VICE PRESIDENT
Opko, Medical Affairs Executive
I had the great fortune to meet with Anne and be introduced to her company when I was looking to build Medical Information infrastructure for OPKO in advance of the launch of our first product. She came to our office in Miami and immediately impressed me with her communication style, business acumen and willingness to take on a huge challenge over the holiday season. Anne and the outstanding team that she put together at RxER Communications built a dedicated call center and Med Info support system in record time, and continue to provide industry-leading quality to OPKO and its customers. Working with Anne and RxER has been a pleasure and I feel very fortunate to have her as a partner, core advisor and friend. Thank you, Anne!!!
DR. EDMUNDO STAHL, MD, VICE PRESIDENT

Anne, thank you for your expertise in creating an infrastructure and a sustainable cost-effective solution for our national respiratory drug information call center. Helping find more cost-effective and saving solutions to our national Investigator Meeting management was also key. Your excellence, expertise, executive coaching and professionalism was exemplary and your customer service was stellar. We would rehire you and work with you on any needed further initiative.
STEVE LIND, DIRECTOR

Anne is one of my favorite co-workers and collaborators at Shire. Anne is very sharp, and excellent listener. She has a very strong ability to work with individuals at all levels within the organization. Her communication skills are excellent, concise, and strong. I worked with Anne as she developed and built from the ground up a new global medical information department at Baxalta, now part of Shire. Her people skills are second to none, and she quickly hired top performers from all around the world and established an excellent, motivated, and inspired global team. I partnered with Anne on several occasions, and found Anne reliable, enthusiastic, and enjoyable to work with. Anne leads by example, has tremendously high standards, and delivers on her commitments. She is a high-achiever, a smart and compassionate leader.
DIXIE NORMAN, ENGINEER
Because of Anne’s coaching programs, I feel like I am on top of the world and finally in control of my choices and actions. I realize now that being in control of my life means joy, peace and excitement for each day. With Anne you will get to see your dreams come true.
If you are going to work with Anne, be prepared to open yourself up and pour yourself out. She is totally committed… working with her went beyond my expectations to craft my next big thing!
Thank you, Anne - The most uplifting message I have heard in a long time.

CEO, KASO Solutions
Anne's content and Corecentryx Coach Training program has enlightened me both personally as well as in my business. learning about how the brain works and why we think differently in situations and helpful in knowing how to handle our relationships. Since this program, I’ve started my own business and have also chaired a local chapter for women entrepreneurs. Passing on the knowledge! It was just so empowering. I can't explain it. I was at peace and knew no matter what happened, that I didn't have to be in the driver seat all the time. I can intentionally put God in the center. I now know how not to have my business end up as a casualty! Anne does a phenomenal job in sharing ideas, resources, examples, etc. and she makes it fun to learn. Anne is easy to listen to; I could listen to her teach for hours. She has so much information to share.
Director and Head, Medical

JUDY PISCITELLO-SERAFIN, LEARNING & DEVELOPMENT EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
Medical Affairs Professional Society (MAPS)
I have worked with Anne in global medical affairs. She built her organization from the ground up and made it into a high performing, high executing team. Anne is an expert in the Global Medical Affairs and Medical Information Space. She is very positive and very easy to work with cross functionally. The most wonderful thing that I noticed working with Anne is she is extremely approachable, her team loved working for her and she is a wonderful listener, however, when there was work to get done, she and her team executed to the highest level possible. She is a true leader in every sense of the word.
I had the privilege to meet Anne in 2011 at an International Leadership Event. I would highly recommend Anne's leadership and expertise for any senior executive or VP position in the pharma/biotech industry. She is a proven coach and global team builder and can turn any organization around operationally.

Anne, you are a VEP! (Very Edifying Person). Thank you!
CRAIG L. VAN KOUWENBERG, M. DIV., D.D.
Anne Arvizu can appropriately be called, “Another California ‘It’ girl”. Born in SoCal, she has “It” and expresses “It”. When Anne speaks, people listen. They listen because the loving wisdom which she offers is real. Highly recommend her as a speaker, consultant, coach and counselor.
DAN CROSS, CEO & FOUNDER
Anne is a well-educated, yet passionate, speaker and teacher. She demonstrates leadership in all aspects in a true servant/leader manner. Her experience in the pharmaceutical field has exposed her to excellent opportunities to learn science and business management, yet she has cultivated a keen sensitivity to the Spirit. God has truly expanded her wisdom.
JOYCE LI, AUTHOR
Anne, I read some of your blogs and they are full of teaching points backed by solid illustrations to help people change lives. Excellent.
I’ve been really impressed. I’ve used these news skills to forge a bridge with a fellow employee whom nobody seemed to resonate with, which is invaluable to me.
