My name’s Ben Dawe. I am a Publisher and author. I work for Macmillan where I run a number of commercial “lists” (or product catalogues) that range from textbooks to writing and study guides to customised curriculum documents. I’ve worked in commercial publishing for 11 years in various positions, including Sales, Field Research, Commissioning and now Publishing (since 2002). In parallel with my full time work I’ve co-written five educational books. The lion’s share of my spare time goes into my family, the wild blue surf of Sydney’s northern beaches, my own writing projects and whatever I happen to be reading at the time.
You’re also invited to visit my English Skills blog, called englishsmarts. This blog focusses on using English purposefully in educational and business contexts.
