Professor Noel Fitzpatrick is a world-leading veterinary surgeon, TV personality and public speaker, widely known as the Supervet. Originally from Ireland, Noel is managing director of one of the largest veterinary referral centres in the UK, Fitzpatrick Referrals. Globally recognised for his innovative surgical solutions for animals, Noel has developed dozens of new techniques, including several world firsts, which have provided hope where none seemed possible to provide quality of life for his patients.

Noel has been the subject of a number of TV documentaries, currently on screen in Channel 4’s flagship factual show, THE SUPERVET’, which has one of the highest audience appreciation figures of any show on the channel. Noel has also been the focus of BIONIC VET (BBC), a guest on Channel 4’s coverage of CRUFTS, a presenter on ANIMAL RESCUE LIVE (Channel 4) and the host of his own podcast, ANIMAL PEOPLE.

In 2018, Noel embarked on a nationwide arena tour, the first veterinary surgeon to do so. NOEL FITZPATRICK, THE SUPERVET: WELCOME TO MY WORLD covered 22 dates across the UK, sharing insights into his personal journey. 2018 also saw the publication of Noel’s first memoir LISTENING TO THE ANIMALS, which quickly became a Sunday Times No.1 Best Seller.

In the public speaking world, Noel has delivered more than 700 academic lectures and talks around the globe for more than a decade, including being a keynote speaker at both human and veterinary congresses.  He founded a charity, called Humanimal Trust, which promotes the concept of One Medicine, a platform for the cross-pollination of expertise and ideas between veterinary and human medicine.

Speaking about the new virtual talk, Noel said:

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
