Since 2007 Ann has worked as an independent consultant with a wide range of small, medium and large organisations as well as many of the funders that support them. Her work involves helping boards, staff teams and individuals to plan, deliver and review what they do, so that they can be more effective, learn from their work and achieve better outcomes.


Prior to becoming a consultant, Ann worked at Big Lottery Fund in grant making, corporate planning, performance management, internal communications and programme and project management and before that for Voluntary Service Overseas, managing development programmes in East and Southern Africa and Eastern Europe. She also has a background in educational publishing and bookselling.
