      Proof It! How to Be A Better ProofReader

      This is the ideal webinar for anyone responsible for overseeing outgoing correspondence, paperwork, project proposals, and email throughout the course of the workday. You'll walk away with two tangible proofreading tools designed to make your job easier.

      Why you should Attend:
      Any document, media kit, or email bearing your organization's insignia or name must be absolutely error free. Even a careless mistake in an email can damage a leader's reputation and can make an entire organization look bad.It's all about our attention to detail.

      Proofreading is a skill anyone can learn and improve. Very few business professionals actually have ever been TAUGHT how to proofread. So join us if:
      You have ever forgotten to attach a document to an email
      You've had to resend that email two minutes later with an "Oops, here it is" message
      You've sent out mass correspondence with a big typo and didn't realize it until it was too late
      You've ever accidentally omitted the "l" when typing the word "public" and not caught it in time (happens more often than you would think)
      You've accidentally typed "form" instead of "from"
      Or "you" instead of "your"
      You've been guilty of taking texting short cuts in your business emails - or you know someone who does
      You have a whopper of a proofreading blooper story of your own to tell
      You're starting to miss errors of omission and other hard-to-catch mistakes

      How to make sure documents leave your office error free
      The "Newspaper Proof": A fail-safe three-step approach to proofreading
      The "Proofreader's Power Pack": Which tools and resources are indispensable to a proofreader
