English for Business was created by Donna McTavish after extensive experience as a business professional and educator in medical and business publishing.

After leaving university with a degree in physiology and biochemistry and a passion for literature and language, Donna began her career in London and Johannesburg before finally settling in Auckland where she worked at a senior management level for two global publishing groups.

Donna is an advocate for simple, effective English in business. She has written and published many articles in scientific journals and business publications.



From her experience in delivering programmes to support strategic learning and development, Donna fully understands how important it is for training and education to be aligned with personal and business goals.

She has seen first hand the benefits of language coaching on the careers of individuals, and on the bottom line results of businesses.

Through her work as a teacher of English for Speakers of Other Languages she knows how to deliver training that is both relevant and practical.

Donna has first-hand experience in learning a second language, and an appreciation of the joys and difficulties of being a language learner.
