    An integrated conference programme at VET Festival encourages delegates to easily explore other streams and select their own lecture path across the festival. The 2018 programme has been specifically designed by Founder Professor Noel Fitzpatrick to empower delegates to choose and create their own desired CPD agenda.

    Professor Noel Fitzpatrick commented: “We created VET Festival to lead the way in redefining veterinary learning and to totally revolutionise the current expected CPD formula. I personally invest a great deal of time into collaborating with speakers who will not only bring unrivalled expertise and knowledge, but inspire, motivate and deliver excellent content that is relevant to all veterinary companion animal professionals. The skills shared will be totally unique amongst other veterinary conferences, and our conference programme comprises a choice of subjects and talent that is hard to beat. I sincerely feel that the academic programme is presented by folks who are truly at the clinical coalface and will bring you insights that aren’t available in textbooks or on-line. Our aspiration is that lectures in tents and the music festival vibe will freshen the air of education and that this open-field learning will help to open minds and hearts to a new paradigm of veterinary education.

    Our goal at VET Festival is to collectively become a positive force for good so that every one of us benefits. With wellness for animals and every member of the profession at the beating heart of VET Festival, we want to enthuse everyone to try to make your vocation exactly how you want it to be. We want to reignite the spark that you had when you signed up to the veterinary profession in the first place and keep it burning brightly. This year the wellness stream has a specific focus on how we cope day to day in a busy clinical environment full of stresses and strains on our mind and body. We have wonderful speakers from across the globe focussing on life-enhancing subjects as diverse as coping with stress and failure, communication, personal nutrition, postural aches and pains, getting to sleep and work-life balance.

    Our commitment is to listen to the delegates – what they want, what they need. Our endeavour is to make VET Festival the greatest and most enjoyable veterinary CPD event in the world and our legacy is the animals and the veterinary professionals we shall help through our endeavours. I can’t wait for 2018.”
