Edel has a B.Sc. (Hons), M.Applied Science (Food Science), Cert Training & Continuing Education, is a Fellow of the Institute of Food Science & Technology (Ireland) and holds auditor qualifications from IRCA (International Register of Certified Auditors). She is an experienced Food Safety Professional with extensive knowledge and experience within various sectors of the food industry and has held significant positions in organisations such as the Institute of Food Science and Technology of Ireland where Edel is a fellow and past president. She is a licensed trainer with the Environmental Health Officers Association of Ireland and a member of the Food Safety Professional Association of Ireland.
Edel has a passion for training and enjoys the interaction with her learners over the duration of the training course. She gets to know her delegates not just the company they work for but who they are and what are their interests and challenges. Some of her delegates keep in touch with her well after the course is over and indeed some have become friends.

Edel remembers one delegate in particular on an ‘Instructors Skill course’ where on the first day he had a baseball cap on nearly covering his whole face and was so fearful he could hardly introduce himself. On Day 2 he was delivering a 10-minute presentation to the whole group.
On his linked in profile he stated that the confidence, respect and skill he got on Edel’s course helped him so much that in work he had been promoted from a production operative to a production supervisor.

Edel has strong interpersonal and communication skills and people both within her professional sphere and in her personal life feel at ease with her and many problems have been discussed and shared over the years.

Tutor Quote

Tutor Quote

A quote I have put great value in as I go through life is from the Greek Philosopher Plato: ‘A good decision is based on knowledge not on numbers’. So often we have to stand out from the crowd when we know what is right and this is a value I hope to instill into my two sons.

Another quote that I hold dear is from T.S. Elliot ‘Every moment is a fresh beginning’
