dsc_0024 With a professional background of HR, Training & Development and Change Management Ann joined Castleton in 2006 from the Water industry, having worked predominantly in the arena of Capital Programmes, with both the internal Client organisation, and the Client-Contract Partner interfaces and relationships.

Ann’s reputation and track record for developing new and innovative approaches, challenging the status quo and catalysing learning and change was established through major projects and one to one support alike, acting as coach, mentor and consultant to Senior Managers and Project teams on the cultural and behavioural implications of change.

With significant involvement and contribution Ann was instrumental in Yorkshire Water’s development of Contract Strategies, Design and implementation of Contract Partner Selection Processes, Client-Contract Partnering Relationships and collaborative working, Learning and Performance Frameworks, KPI’s and Assurance and Improvement; many being recognised as leading edge developments in the Water and Construction Sectors.

Since joining Castleton Ann has continued to support all aspects of the interface and relationship between Client-Contract Partner, Customer-Supplier and Manager-Team. Her current development interest is in the area of sense-making and creating the conditions for success at strategic and operational levels in all these contexts of doing business.

Ann lives in West Yorkshire and enjoys the theatre, travel, walking and listening to music, especially at a rock/pop concert!
