Paddy’s experience in Healthcare Management
*Addiction Recovery Organisations
We had no other choice but to move online with our activities but we developed a model that delivered high quality content and networking to our participants.
This process of adaptation has relied on significant investment and employee engagement within the Alumni Team. More importantly, it has benefited from the unrelenting support of people like Paddy Creedon who have devoted time, knowledge and expertise to help adapt, maintain and in some cases improve the Alumni activities both in Belgium and internationally and that allow for co-creation, learning and exchange even during these very challenging times.
To express our gratitude for Paddy’s contribution to the Vlerick Alumni, as a member of our Alumni Advisory Board and to recognise his contribution we present him with this certificate
Paddy is a highly experienced individual both professionally and through his lived experience, he is a strong advocate for people impacted by substance use issues and has been crucial in helping people develop their recovery capital. Paddy is a very calm and positive leader with a wealth of knowledge in business development and workplace wellbeing.
I can’t speak highly enough about Paddy. He has been a complete inspiration to me all my working life. His ability to cut through to the core of a challenge in a respectful and insightful way is simply extraordinary. His authentic self is always at the centre of what he does and his ability to not only bring people with him but to develop them along the journey is well known. To watch him in action is a masterclass in Leadership at its very best. I have no doubt what he has to offer the business community is not only unique but so needed.
I have known and worked with Paddy Creedon for a number of years and his knowledge, experience and leadership skills are exemplary. In more recent times I believe that he has not just led a very strong multi-disciplinary team through a challenging period but has, during that period, improved the service and helped make possible some welcome changes. He embraces change and delivers projects on time and within budget.
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...
