Meet Anne. She works across the public sector to make change happen. She is analytical, creative and gets things done. She’s good at leading teams, at being part of teams and at putting teams together. She is particularly interested in improving the experiences that vulnerable families and people. She likes to ride her bike and she’s learning to bake now that she’s heard about easy it is to use wheat-free flour in cakes.
What has she done?
Anne has worked with local services to change the way they are delivered. She’s worked in national government departments, getting people to agree and then write and share new policies particularly around children and families. She’s designed and facilitated lots and lots of workshops, sometimes with people who really don’t want to be having the conversations that they need to have. She has also written different publications setting out visions for change, both about changing the way we all interact with our public services and about how a specific local service can transform.
Anne has done things with numbers to help understand what is going on in hospitals, in local authorities and in other organisations.
She has showed people how to do things differently: to engage with their colleagues and with people who use their services but also more mundane things like how to run workshops or give presentations.
Anne has worked in New York City, across the UK and in Dubai.
