Some international organisations worked with:
• ActionAid International (www.actionaid.org): Worked with ActionAid International over a one-year period. The extensive assignment involved working with the International Board, the Chair, the Chief Executive, individual Trustees and members of the Secretariat. The assignment involved international travel to work at grass root level in different countries. Tesse ran workshops in Brazil, South Africa, Greece, the Netherlands and London. The review resulted in workshops for Chairs and Treasurers which were delivered in South Africa, updates to the Governance Manual, a range of new Board policies and a restructuring of the way governance was carried out. Governance practices and approaches were discussed and agreed with the different associate member groups. The review also led to the development of a global assembly to encourage collaboration across the ActionAid family.
