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 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 conferences for A-Level students. I also presented and trained presenters for these conferences.

Since 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 2015 this has been a salaried, part-time position. Alongside some teaching, my role at Gimlekollen focuses on research and publication.

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

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