David Riley was a teacher, writer and publisher of Business and ELT materials. He was renowned in the ELT world for his creation of materials for a range of publishers, big and small. You might not have met David in person but it is very likely that you will have used some of his excellent materials. Respected for his true understanding of the ELT classroom, and the motivation he inspired in his students, he used this experience to create truly innovative publishing projects.
David passed away in 2007 leaving a big gap in the ELT world. To remember him and his rare talent, BESIG and Macmillan are honoured to have launched a new industry award - ‘The David Riley Award for Innovation in Business English and ESP’.
