Additional Information

  • I set up Proofed Beyond Doubt in 2008 after nearly 35 years in the financial services industry. My extensive experience in business and personal finance makes me an ideal proofreader for material covering these areas, although I have a generalist approach and will consider all non-scientific subjects, with the exception of fiction or memoirs.
  • I am client-focused and flexible, have excellent organisational skills, am used to tight deadlines and am often able to accept smaller jobs at short notice for quick turnaround.
  • Attention to detail, high-quality work, flexibility, adherence to deadlines and excellent customer service have all ensured that Proofed Beyond Doubt has grown rapidly, and I enjoy a high level of repeat business from satisfied clients.
