Murray Watson, PhD, is an Associate of Platinum Leadership Inc. Language and dialogue are two of Murray’s great loves: words, sentences, paragraphs—and using those tools to bring people into conversation, with the goal of better understanding, mutual enrichment and collaboration. Murray’s education has taken him from London, Ontario to graduate studies in Rome, Jerusalem and Dublin, and a 2010 PhD from Trinity College, which explored models of intercultural and interreligious communication. He has taught at several affiliated colleges of Western University, and has offered workshops, lectures and retreats to a wide range of audiences across Canada, in England, Ireland and Israel.

An avid proponent of interfaith dialogue, Murray spends part of each year directing adult interfaith education programmes in Jerusalem, and shares that passion with a number of local, national and international interreligious bodies. In 2004, he helped to co-found the Centre for Jewish-Catholic-Muslim Learning at King’s University College, and he has served as Communications Officer for the International Council of Christians and Jews (based in Heppenheim, Germany). As a wordsmith, editor and translator, Murray often has the opportunity to translate French and Italian texts, and loves the challenge of helping languages—and people—speak to each other. He considers it a privilege to serve Platinum’s clients, and hopes that his skills and experience can support them in the vital work of communicating in our increasingly interconnected world.
