Annemarie SchrevenAnne-Marie is a development professional with over 25 years experience in Asia, Africa and the Caribbean. Her passion is capacity development, change management and leadership. She started my career supporting organizational performance of NGOs (in India, Rwanda and Ethiopia) but shifted to managing and facilitating reform processes in governments, at national and sub-national levels (in Bhutan, (back to) Rwanda and Haiti). At present, she leads the VNG International projects and office in Myanmar.
She does believe that people are responsible for their own change and that our role is to assist people in finding answers to their questions and challenges and bring about change. Of course, she keeps an eye on the expected results and on maintaining respectful relationships. It is all about understanding (intercultural) complexity and learning. Anne-Marie herself keeps on learning (that's what keeps her going) and encourage others to learn and grow. Though this is serious business, a good sense of humor often does wonders too!
