Warren has a background in English language teaching both overseas and in New Zealand. Prior to 1984, he worked as an English teacher in Italy and England teaching international students from all parts of the world. On his return to New Zealand, he co-ordinated new settler education at a polytechnic in Auckland.

Warren moved into mainstream staff development within the public tertiary sector in the late 80s where he was primarily responsible for training teachers working in New Zealand polytechnics and private training establishments. He was also involved in training visiting groups of teachers from a range of Asian countries, including Thailand, Malaysia and Korea.

Warren left the public tertiary sector in the mid nineties to found QED Associates with a group of other education specialists. Since that time, he has been facilitating teacher training programmes and providing a range of consultancy services to educational organisations. His particular interests and specialisations in the training of adults include lesson planning, student-centred learning and standards-based assessment. In the field of educational consultancy, Warren has particular strengths in the areas of course and programme design, learning resource development, programme evaluation and organisational audit. His extensive experience gained over the years in providing these services ensures a high success rate in achieving positive outcomes for clients.
