Ann Good has a career that has spanned nearly 40 years, in the areas of international development, change management, managing for results, education, and intercultural learning, through her work with Canadian and international organizations, primarily with the Canadian federal government. She has experience at all major functions of organizations - planning, implementation, capacity development (human resources and information architecture), monitoring and evaluation, and reporting on results.
Ann speaks English, French, and Spanish, has a reasonable level of fluency in Thai, plus some Hindi, German and Italian. She has lived and worked in France, Thailand, Zambia, Ivory Coast, Argentina and India, and has managed substantial development programs in the Americas, Africa, South Asia and South East Asia. Special areas of expertise include gender equality and governance; in addition, sectors of significant program management include environment, education, water and sanitation, energy, private sector development, telecommunications, and health. She is an enthusiastic trainer, coach and mentor and keeps abreast of evolving trends in international development and evaluation.
Retired from full-time employment (last employed at the former Canadian International Development Agency), Ann likes to take on short-term contracts, either as an individual or to round out a consultant team in her areas of expertise.
