About Me Val Neenan
I previously worked within the private sector after graduating from UCC as an Occupational Psychologist and specialised in Human Resources and Organisational Development. I have over 10 years experience in multinational start-ups and have expertise in HR management, team and individual development; performance and change management; recruitment and selection techniques; psychometric assessment; facilitation, coaching and communication skills; learning and development programmes.
I immediately worked in two start-up organizations from conception namely Boston Scientific and Warner Lambert Tablet Plant (now Pfizer). My focus within those companies was to set up HR practices aligned with the culture and the business strategy of the organization. I designed the structure for both start-ups and championed the recruitment process which encompassed hiring up to 1200 employees.
I am a very passionate, committed individual and possess huge values, integrity and honesty and have a natural intuitive ability to work with and help develop individuals and realise their worth and potential. I am an excellent listener and my communication style is very open, warm, compassionate and understanding.
