Professor David Wilson has spent his professional life working with violent men - especially men who have committed murder. Aged twenty-nine he became, at that time, the UK's youngest ever prison Governor in charge of a jail and his career since then has seen him sitting across a table with all sorts of killers: sometimes in a tense interview; sometimes sharing a cup of tea (or something a little stronger); sometimes looking them in the eye to tell them that they are a psychopath.

Some of these men became David's friends; others would still love to kill him.

My Life with Murderers tells the story of David's journey from idealistic prison governor to expert criminologist and professor. With experience unlike any other, David's story is a fascinating and compelling study of human nature.

Hosted at the University of Strathclyde (Auditorium B/C) on Saturday 14th December 2019, this event provides a unique opportunity to hear David discuss his fascinating career. The event will also include a question and answer session.

VIP tickets include the opportunity to meet Professor Wilson in the greenroom prior to the event. You will be able to take photos and have your criminological questions answered! You will also recieve a FREE signed copy of one of Professor Wilson's books! Very limited number available.

Book early to avoid disappointment and be prepared to gain an unrivalled insight into the life of one of the country's leading criminologists!

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Professor David Wilson: My Life with Murderers are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
