Liz Paton

Business Integration Lead / Senior Consultant

I am Business Integration Lead and a Senior Consultant at IOD PARC, with over 30 years’ experience in international and community development in government and NGO settings. Prior to coming to IOD PARC, I worked with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in New Zealand’s development cooperation programme with postings to Brussels, working with the EU and member states, and Paris, working with the OECD DAC. I have worked as a diplomat and development practitioner across the Pacific and Europe.

My focus is supporting and growing IOD PARC’s people, practices, and policies to enable the delivery of value and quality for clients and for all partners receiving donor support. I have specific expertise in testing, planning, managing, monitoring, and evaluating development initiatives. My passion is growing teams and organisations to deliver high quality development initiatives.
