When using technology, we often focus optimistically on all the things it does for us.
My job sees me coordinating any bilateral incoming and outgoing visits by the trade minister or the prime minister, and preparing the briefing material for their respective visits.

Words Of Wisdom I would say take pieces of advice from others with a grain of salt. Except for this one: I have been privileged to work with some of the best and brightest, from whom I have learned a great deal.
These colleagues are diplomats with incredibly diverse experiences and I have always appreciated hearing the stories of how they started their careers.

I was there to inform specific Japanese audiences about what Canada was doing to protect wild fish stocks in the region and the importance of curtailing illegal fishing for both our countries.

The network worked collaboratively to develop the participant list, the location and resources needed for the workshop and the teaching and training objectives.
The one thing we lacked was commitment from a facilitator or trainer. This role came to me and I flew to Iowa with no high containment experience, having never dissected anything larger than a mouse, and with more than a few nerves. The scientists worked extremely well together — this included team-teaching, sharing suggestions and protocols, and developing research collaborations and ideas for future workshops.
I never thought I would be in the position I was in — discussing the best way to crack open a rib cage with a group of highly trained experts — but policy work can take you in some very unexpected directions.
