International Safeguarding with Ann Marie Christian


Working in specific area of social work, it's easy to get caught up in a bubble. Speaking to Ann Marie opened my eyes to the International differences in Safeguarding that I hadn't considered before.


Safe to say Ann Marie has an extremely cool job. She travels all over the world in her role as a Safeguarding expert speaker, trainer and author. She was full of wisdom from years of experience and I learnt a lot from speaking to her.
