Corinne de Bruin

Candidate for Regular Member Position on the Board of Directors

I am seeking reappointment to the Board of Directors to continue to contribute to CLEAR’s mandate of promoting regulatory excellence and to build on the excellent work done by CLEAR staff, previous Boards and CLEAR member organization participants.

 

Having been involved with CLEAR for the last six years, and with my background in licensure and regulation and my contributions with several CLEAR committees (administration, legislation and policy, international relations, and regulatory agency administration, regional symposia and the annual education conferences, I would be honored to continue bring my experience and passion for the CLEAR mandate to serve on the Board. 

 

I particularly enjoy seeing innovative ideas about licensure, enforcement and regulation transform into CLEAR program offerings where everyone and their respective organizations, no matter the industry or profession, can impact their own regulatory environment with the takeaways from those ideas.

 

My areas of interest are:

  • Encouraging innovation
  • Diversity, equity and inclusion in regulation and licensing
  • Increasing the ability of regulatory organizations to utilize information from common data sets to inform their strategic and operational business decisions
  • Optimizing lessons learned from regulatory changes to inform regulatory best practices
  • Promoting educational events that are timely, relevant, and varied
  • Encouraging a larger audience from the global regulatory community to participate with CLEAR

Paul Byrne

Candidate for Regular Member Position on the Board of Directors

My experience in areas such as strategic leadership, delivery of projects, stakeholder engagement, change management, and the implementation of regulatory frameworks have given me the diverse range of skillsets required for this role.


As a leader within my current role as Head of Registration in CORU, I advocate change management and good regulatory practice. As a member of the senior management team, I understand the importance of implementing mechanisms to ensure an organization delivers on its strategic objectives and legislative functions.


I ensure all operational activity complies with organizational SLA’s, KPI’s, and good international practices. I track key work priorities by utilizing an Eisenhower Matrix to ensure prioritization of urgent and important strategic objectives. Within the registration department, and its associated teams, I have embedded this as a culture. I also recognize the value in proactively using data as an enabler to drive change.


Throughout my career, I have placed a strong focus on stakeholder engagement and effective communication. I have represented Ireland on a number of international committees including the EU energy security committees, the UK/Ireland energy forum, and the EU regional risk groups. Within CORU, I have used stakeholder feedback to evolve how registration interacts with applicants and registrants. This has included the development of National Adult Literacy Agency accredited guidance documents and most recently Ukrainian guidance notes. With respect to internal stakeholders, I have designed hybrid digital training programs to facilitate new starters who join the department remotely.


In my previous role in the Irish Energy Regulator, I was the Chairperson of the promotion and public awareness committee. This role had overall responsibility for all public relations campaigns with respect to energy safety. To support this, I also undertook additional training in media skills and online digital reputation management. In addition to the above experience, I also hold a certificate in Digital Media/Online Reputation Management and I have conducted media training with Carr Communications.


My experience over 17 years has given me insight into the important responsibility of being a regulator with statutory powers. In addition to my public sector experience, I also hold academic qualifications in areas such as Project Management, Leadership, Living & Work in a Diverse Culture, and Digital Reputation Management.


I previously held a number of statutory positions, including as a regulatory criminal investigator. In each role, I made decisions based on the data available, public safety/risk, our legislative role, fairness, and reputational risk. These are the values I will take to this role.


I would welcome an opportunity to discuss further why my knowledge, skills, and expertise can contribute in a positive way to the future work of CLEAR and its board of directors.

Michael Carpenter

Candidate for Regular Member Position on the Board of Directors

I have always gained a lot from my involvement with CLEAR and would welcome the opportunity to contribute to the board of directors for a second term to help continuing to shape its future. 


All of our organizations and the professions with which we work are trying to plan and navigate our way through unprecedented times with little certainty about what the future and post-COVID normal might look like.  I am particularly keen to work with the board to ensure that CLEAR’s business model is adaptable and sustainable and that we explore opportunities for expanding CLEAR’s membership and reach to further strengthen our community of regulators.


I believe that my experience of working across multiple professions as well as in Europe and Australia will allow me to make a strong contribution to the board and to build on the excellent work that CLEAR undertakes.

Andrew Charnock

Candidate for Regular Member Position on the Board of Directors

With over 45 years’ experience in several health care settings, I would bring a range of experiences to the Director role. I would like to see CLEAR expand its geographical reach with the establishment of satellite centers. Living and working in New Zealand would provide an opportunity to reach many parts of Australasia, a perspective I would like to bring to the Board. Of particular interest is the diversity, equity and inclusion work many regulators are involved as we respond to the unique requirement of Te Tiriti o Waitangi (Treaty of Waitangi).
