Proofreading for Zero Grammar Errors
- Proofread to Perfection - Crystal Clear Writing
When someone sends out a report, memo or e-mail filled with errors, don’t you begin to question the professionalism (and maybe even the intelligence) of the author? And if you’re questioning it, don’t you think readers up and down the corporate ladder are thinking the same thing? You bet they are!
DON’T LET SIMPLE MISTAKES RUIN YOUR CAREER. Join Sandra Sandu in this 1 day skills-packed workshop designed for busy professionals like you who want a super-fast, easy way to brush up on grammar, spelling, punctuation and business usage.
Just as different people have different styles of writing, how you edit and proofread your work differs from the next person. You may prefer to put your thoughts down quickly, and worry about content structure, grammar, language and spelling later on, or you may prefer to write down and revise as you go along. Whichever way you prefer, editing and proofreading is an inseparable part of the writing process.
You will acquire the skill of editing and proofreading in this 1 day workshop and increase your confidence and credibility in writing.
