He may save the lives of animals every day, but the Supervet Noel Fitzpatrick is set to talk about how animals saved his life at a virtual event.
The world-leading veterinary surgeon, TV personality and public speaker, is managing director of one of the largest veterinary referral centres in the UK, Fitzpatrick Referrals and globally recognised for his innovative surgical solutions for animals - as well as appearing in Channel 4's The Supervet.
In the live virtual evening on Monday, April 19, he will reflect on his personal journey into writing his latest book, How Animals Saved My Life and how his relationship with animals has taught him how to be a better version of himself.
For the honest discussion, he will be joined by TV presenter Lorraine Kelly.
He said of the event: “Writing this book was an emotional roller coaster for me. In equal measure enlightening and deeply affecting – it was often challenging, but ultimately uplifting - much like my life as a surgeon every day.
"I’ve learnt lots of lessons along the way and I think many of us share similar fears, hopes, elations, frustrations, successes and failures in life no matter what path we’re on.
"Animals constantly show us how to care with integrity in a world needing compassion and understanding - now more than ever. I am looking forward to sharing the journey of how all of this came to life with Lorraine and with each and every one of you.”
In 2018, Noel became the first vet to stage a nationwide arena tour, Welcome to my World and published his first memoir Listening to the Animals which became a Sunday Times No.1 best seller.
He has delivered more than 700 academic lectures and talks for more than a decade, as well as founding the Humanimal Trust.
