Meet Simon Buller: Happy to Chat project sponsor

Meet Simon Buller, Director of Operations, IOE, UCL's Faculty of Education and Society, and one of the sponsors of the Happy to Chat benches

Who would you most like to have a conversation with and why?

My mum, she’s just had a hip operation and I can’t get to visit her for another week.

Can recall your strangest conversation?

Years ago I presented to a number of students and only after half an hour of conversation realised I was addressing the wrong class!

Which of our inspirational women most struck a chord with you?

It’s a tough choice but Bernice Law does stand out. UCL has its origins in Law and strong history in enabling students to excel in their careers. To see Bernice’s rise both in the Caribbean and in the UK is astonishing given all the intersectional challenges that faced her. Extraordinary!
