Paddy’s experience in Healthcare Management
*Addiction Recovery Organisations
Delegates at this year’s Master Series Trauma and Mental Health Conference in Oxford were treated to two wonderful performances by Celtic Grace and Paddy Creedon.
‘Celtic Kindness’, their musical story of the life of iconic and blind harpist Turlough O’Carolan in 17th century Ireland, created a truly captivating and uplifting experience in the world-famous Sheldonian theatre. Storytelling accompanied by such talented performances on the harp and flute.
The following day, their outdoor performance of music and poetry at the University’s Examination Schools evoked a mesmerising sense of calm in the late summer sunshine. A wonderful opportunity to relax and recharge whilst taking a break during the conference. In addition you created such a unique and moving tribute to the late Sinéad O’Connor, which the audience were so touched by.
I highly recommend both these performances – the artists have the attentiveness and flexibility to tailor their performances exactly to the requirements of your conference or event.
A huge thank you for today! Everyone was so impressed. You spoke so eloquently and from the heart. Not an easy thing but so important for people to hear your voice. And I’ve had nothing but amazing feedback and compliments for my choice speakers.
My heartfelt gratitude for all the support Paddy provided during our study trip to Dublin. His professionalism and enthusiasm were truly remarkable, and they played a significant role in making our trip a resounding success.
The feedback from everyone who participated in the study trip has been overwhelmingly positive, and it’s clear that Paddy’s guidance and assistance were instrumental in creating such a wonderful experience. We all thoroughly enjoyed the knowledge exchange with the Irish healthcare professionals, and it was a fantastic opportunity to learn and grow together.

Paddy was wonderful to work with on this project at Rowallane Garden from start to finish.
I would recommend that anyone wishing to tell a story in a creative way spends time discussing the possibilities with him. From the very beginning Paddy emersed himself in painting a picture of Rowallane and Hugh Armytage Moore. A trait that can only be described as infectious.
His passion for his craft radiates from his pen onto paper, and the final result, four poems that capture what Rowallane Garden means to so many people perfectly met the brief we had provided in our early discussions.
Paddy’s willingness to support with garden walks, reading his poems in the heart of where they were inspired was the icing on the cake, feedback from staff and visitors alike has been overwhelmingly positive. We would definitely explore working with him again in the future.
Developing business plans from startups to large corporations, Paddy Creedon brings a personable and creative approach to business management.
Grounded in over 40 years experiences, along with his academic qualifications Paddy has the innate ability to get to the nub of the business challenges, quickly and is very solution focused.
Paddy also enjoys public speaking, poetry and creative writing...
