I was disturbed by last week's article that reported an accusation of bullying against the vice-chancellor of my univer-sity and cast our staff development festival in a poor light.
My experience of the vice-chancellor, Simon Lee, is of a colleague who is unusually concerned with the welfare of others at all levels within the institution.
The staff development festival was an astonishing affair, full of opportunities for networking as well as for the development of skills and knowledge.
