‘Above all, be proactive and passionate about what you do – education is no place for mediocrity. Read, write an article for a journal – above all, step outside of your comfort zone. It’s the same advice I give to my children – You get out of life what you put into it.’
Could you tell us something about your early career in the language teaching sector?
I started my career in ELT some 18 years ago, as a Management Co-ordinator for Norwich Institute for Language Education (NILE) after a background in International Marketing.. Over the course of the next 17 years, I saw a small organisation grow from its early beginnings to being one of the largest organisation of its kind. Throughout that period, I held various roles but all were with a focus on marketing and business development.
As a ELT trainer, I have worked mainly in the area of ELT management, whilst still retaining an interest in my passion for reading & reader development and have been an active conference presenter in these areas.
