About the Workshop

How do you feel when you read a report, leaflet, letter or professional website that contains errors in grammar, spelling and punctuation? Not impressed?

We all know that business writing must be polished and professional at all times, but the challenge lies in avoiding errors and inconsistencies in grammar, spelling and punctuation. Information must be correct, clear, and concise and must communicate the intended message.

How do you check that a sentence is grammatically correct? When do you use “that” and “which”? When can you use “infer”? What is best practice in writing numbers and dates? These are the kinds of issues that proof-readers face every day.

  • Understand the role of a proofreader;
  • Understand how to proofread a document for accuracy and consistency;
