Paddy is ISEAL's Code Development Manager
I joined ISEAL in September 2008 and have seen rapid development of the organisation since that time. I have managed the development of the ISEAL Impacts Code and associated learning materials, the ISEAL Assurance Code, the ISEAL Research Network, and participated in the ISEAL Stepwise Report. My work brings me in close contact with technical people working in ISEAL members’ systems. I enjoy and value the cross-systems learning that occurs during a stakeholder consultation process. I have a particular interest in reducing jargon and using plain language in my work.
I worked for four years running a project to develop an organic regulation for Canada – the first new agricultural programme in Canada in 50 years. During this time I learned valuable lessons about how to run a successful stakeholder consultation. Before this I worked as a policy analyst in the organic sector in British Columbia. In this capacity I learned how to reach successful outcomes when interacting with different levels of government.
