How we can all change our world



The Auditorium

Lord Simon Woolley is Principal of Homerton College, Cambridge – and he has got there through a highly unusual route. 

Fostered and then adopted as a child, he grew up on a Leicester council estate and left school without any A levels. But he eventually returned to academia, and went on to become a campaigner, author and crossbench peer – sparking his passionate belief in, and dedication to, educational access for all, and the importance of recognising potential.  

Joining us as a keynote speaker at Brighton Summit, Simon will talk about his life – the challenges he’s encountered, and the skills and passions he’s developed along the way.
