The most recent CPD workshop hosted by the AHPI, focused on ‘Leadership in influencing the Health and Wellbeing Agenda’. The practice of Health Promotion is based on nine internationally recognised competencies, one of which is Leadership. This workshop aimed to provide participants with an overview of the principles of effective leadership in influencing the health and wellbeing agenda and how these translate into health promotion practice.
The facilitator for the workshop was Dr Felicity Kelliher. Dr Kelliher is a Senior Lecturer in Management, co-chair of the RIKON research group at the School of Business, Waterford IT and partner faculty Professor at Shanghai University, China. Fecility has over 20+ years of teaching and training experience and extensive International experience in senior Project Management and Retail and Finance Consultancy roles. She brought her wealth of experience and knowledge to the delivery of the workshop and provided an insightful and practical session.
The workshop was very well attended, with 38 delegates attending from the AHPI, HSE and other sectors. Waterford IT hosted the event in the impressive Health Science building which provided a great opportunity to network and catch up with up with colleagues and friends.
Overall it was a hugely successful day and we would like to extend our thanks and appreciation to our colleagues in the South East, Aileen Scott, Susan Scully and Teresa Hennessy; Dr Kelliher, Mairead Barry and Dr Michael Harrison from WIT and all those who attended.wit pic
