Business

You are a busy person, after all you've a business to run! Your time is precious, as is your reputation with your customers and suppliers. You might require in-house documentation for your staff, advertising flyers, a website, a detailed report or proposal, or some other pressing and important documentation. Easy enough to knock out some words perhaps, but what about the final product, the impression you want to give?  Of course, you could do it yourself, after all, you know your business better than anyone. But do you have the time, not just to get the words down, but to produce a well-written, grammatically correct piece that presents your message clearly and concisely with everything checked down to the very last punctuation detail? 

What I can do for you:

  • Proofreading and/or copy-editing of your advertisements, flyers, website, or any written message that helps your business; don't forget, there's a mini glossary of edit types on the information page

  • Help with written content e.g., internal communications, advertising material, letters to clients and suppliers

  • Help with website creation and maintenance.

Please contact me for an informal discussion on how I might be able to help with any or more of these suggestions.

My experience

  • I am a member of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading.

  • I have over 25 years' experience working in motorsport and defence; sectors in which written communication is a key factor to success.  

  • I have constructed, edited, and maintained several small-business websites.

Benefits I offer

  • I can offer the fine-detail of proofreading, the close scrutiny that uncovers those gremlins of grammar and punctuation, spelling and spacing, indeed a check of every single character. I will check for consistency, that names and dates are correct, that headings, style, font sizes are as you want them throughout the entire document.

  • I also offer a more in-depth edit that covers the bigger picture. I will make sure that your message is clearly written and easily understood and that the construction and wording suits your particular audience. 

  • First impressions make a difference, we all know that. The reputation of you and your business can hang on the words you use to communicate your ideas. You want customers, new and old, to think only the best of your endeavours. I can help you clean away all of those irksome mistakes that can so often give the wrong first impression.

  • An accurate and fast turnaround service, and always with a smile. 

  • As a member of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading (CIEP) I am bound by its established code of practice.
