I am a language education consultant with over 35 years of experience.  For many years I was a senior lecturer in TESOL at a British university, but I now undertake a variety of tasks both within and beyond academic institutions. I offer a range of  language education consultancy services.  Please do contact me to put out feelers about working together. I have an extensive publication record and I am a regular presenter at international conferences usually as a keynote or plenary speaker. I travel widely and have been fortunate enough to deliver numerous presentations, consultancies, guest lectures and workshops in over 20 countries.  I have worked with a number of institutions across the globe to gather data for research. My expertise includes: education technology; methodology; syllabus design; teaching materials; research methods; English for Academic Purposes (EAP) - most recently (and for obvious reasons) I have become particularly interested in social media for continuing professional development (CPD) in TESOL.  I base myself in the UK for much of the year and in Thailand for the rest.  Having two hubs sometimes allows me to undertake regional-based activity at a fraction of the cost as long haul flights can be avoided.  I am a reader for the following of peer-reviewed journals:  TESL-EJ TESOL Journal and System. Additionally, I have extensive experience of external validation and examining at undergraduate, MA and PhD levels.   I have had commissions from Routledge and Oxford University Press to review works prior to publication.  I have also undertaken work to promote: a digital innovation British Council ELTONS award winner; a leading  MA programme and an online task based language teaching course; three international language education conferences; several book publications - all via this website and its huge social media outreach.
