Congress 2022 Opening Speaker – Sabrina Cohen-Hatton

We’re proud to announce Dr Sabrina Cohen-Hatton as our opening speaker at SPVS VMG Congress 2022, 21 – 22 January.

Firefighter, psychologist and writer Dr Sabrina Cohen-Hatton joined the fire-service at the age of eighteen and is now one of the most senior female firefighters in the UK.

After leaving home at fifteen and school at sixteen, she joined the fire service in Wales. While climbing the ranks, she studied at the Open University and then at Cardiff University, eventually completing a PhD in Psychology. Her subsequent research into incident command in the emergency services has not only won awards but has also influenced policy at a global level. Sabrina was recently conferred as an Honorary Fellow at Cardiff University.  Her first book, The Heat of the Moment, was published in 2019. Sabrina is also an ambassador for the Big Issue.

Listen to Sabrina on BBC Dessert Island Discs.

Sabrina heads up our 2-day leadership and management lecture programme delivered by world-class speakers from within the veterinary profession and beyond.

We’re incredibly excited to be returning to Newport on 21 – 22 January, and for the first time Congress 2022 will be held at the fantastic new ICC Wales – located in the ground of Celtic Manor, giving us the best of both venues.

We’ve some great offers including member early bird, lower income tickets and bundle deals so why not register today!

We look forward to welcoming you.
