Pete Sharma
Pete started his EFL career as a business English teacher in Madrid, moving to Finland before returning to the UK. He worked as teacher trainer, Director of Studies and school manager before becoming the Group teacher training and development manager for Linguarama, a business English organisation which is now part of the Markus Evans group. In his capacity as a member of the Group Pedagogical Unit he inspected schools, taught writing seminars in the Middle and Far East, and helped create and run trainer training courses.

Pete recently changed from ESP to EAP, and currently divides his time between lecturing at Oxford Brookes University and on the Warwick University pre-sessional courses, and writing. Pete is currently involved in writing the Teacher’s Book for the pre-intermediate level of ‘The Business’ for Macmillan, and contributing material to the DVD-ROM for the same course.

Pete has presented regularly at IATEFL and BESIG conferences over the years. He is on the Macmillan Dictionary advisory committee, and is a former editor of the BESIG newsletter. Last year, he completed his Masters in Educational Technology and ELT at Manchester University by distance learning, appearing in Manchester only once – on graduation day. Pete also has the DELTA and has taken the International House Skills of Teacher Training course and the certificate in on-line teaching (COLTE). He keeps a blog on using technology in ELT with co-author Barney Barrett. See: Pete’s latest book as co-author is Blended Learning: using technology in and beyond the language classroom in the prestigious Macmillan Books for Teachers series.

Kevin Westbrook
Kevin Westbrook has been involved in teaching English as a foreign language since 1992, mainly in Austria and Germany. He returned to England in 2005, since when he has gained more experience in teaching EAP. Prior to that he worked for ten years for Barclays Bank in England before deciding it was a bad idea and doing a degree in Management Science with German Language. On top of this BSc, he did his CELTA course in Seville and has the Certificate in Translation from the Institute of Linguists. By the time you read this, he should be very close to completing an MA in Applied Linguistics for Language Teaching.
Kevin has specialised for a number of years in Business and Technical English and has learned about IT the hard way – teaching himself. As a result, he has a lot of sympathy for those who are near the beginning of that road but want to learn more. He is responsible for the technical aspects of and several Moodle courses. He has also made presentations on e-publishing and technical English teaching at various conferences.
