Mr Peter S Williams

Assistant Professor of Communication and Worldviews, Gimlekollen School of Journalism and Communication, Norway

I studied philosophy at Cardiff University (BA), Sheffield University (MA) and at the University of East Anglia in Norwich (MPhil).

I spent three years as a student pastor at Holy Trinity church Leicester before moving to Southampton in 2001 to work alongside Christian educational charity Damaris Trust , until the charity closed in 2015. My work with Damaris  included a lead role developing both the content and the multi-media delivery of Damaris  sixth-form conferences for A-Level students and in presenting and training presenters for these conferences.

Since February 2009 I’ve been ‘Assistant Professor in Communication and Worldviews’ at Gimlekollen School of Journalism and Communication (part of NLA University College) in Kristiansand, Norway. Since Feb 2015 this has been a salaried, part-time position. Alongside some teaching, my main role at Gimlekollen is research, publication and course development.

I’m a travelling speaker for the European Leadership Forum.

I live in Southampton, where I’m an active member of Highfield CofE Church.
