Your message could come across entirely different than you meant it if you don't properly proofread. Proofreading not only catches typographical errors, but also factual mistakes, contextual blunders and more. Poor proofreading has resulted in embarrassment, lost money and even lawsuits. Discover the key considerations of proper proofreading.


At the conclusion of this session, participants will learn:

  • the characteristics of effective communication
  • the various levels of proofreading and which to utilize in any given document
  • simple steps to follow for perfect proofreading
