The brief

Be The Business is a thinktank headed by Sir Charlie Mayfield (Chairman of John Lewis), bringing together some of the brightest minds in the UK business community to look into Britain's productivity problem and how to reverse it. As part of this, Be The Business produced a seminal report into the mindsets of SME business leaders, providing a snapshot of the current 'State of the Nation' in terms of small business performance. A critical publication to be read by the UK business community, wider interest groups and politicians, Be The Business wanted to ensure complete accuracy and readability. They engaged my services as proofreader to ensure no inconsistencies or errors were missed at the final editing stage.

The challenge

A report of this calibre required absolte accuracy and consistency, with no room for error. The content was confidential, and the deadlines were tight so I had to juggle commitments to get various sections to print in time. There were a lot of statistics, figures and footnotes to be checked and consistency ensured.

The results

Be The Business were impressed with my quick turnaround and attention to detail. The report went to print successfully and will be a key piece of print for the thinktank.
