Before you read her full testimonial, here's a little bit about Emma and what she has achieved in her proofreading career.
Though based in the UK, Emma provides proofreading and editing services to a number of clients around the world, including:
Emma has proofread articles, website content, essays, blogs, itineraries, biographies, novels and resumes. She specialises in working with clients who have English as a second language, from countries as diverse as China, Sweden, Holland and Peru.
Perhaps her proudest achievement is her work proofreading, editing and shaping speeches, articles, blog posts and press releases for Michael Ellenbogen. Michael lives in America and has Young Onset Alzheimer's Disease. He is actively campaigning for increased funding and research into the condition. I'll let Michael speak for Emma's skill, commitment and professionalism:
"I have Alzheimer's disease and I am an advocate and prolific campaigner for increased research, funding and understanding into the disease in the USA. Without Emma's help in writing and editing I would not be able to do what I do. She always delivers work on time, and to extremely high standards. She has written my speeches which have been presented to Harvard University and many committees and meetings. Emma also co-wrote and co-edited a letter which has been submitted to the United States Congressional Record. With her continued help I have reached more people and had a huge amount of success."
And Michael isn't the only one of Emma's clients delighted with her contributions. She is described as:
Now, let's hear from Emma, herself.
“I am one of those many fools who paid a huge amount of money for a useless course. Hindsight is a wonderful thing and, unfortunately, I didn’t come across Mike’s website until it was too late. We live and learn.
“If anyone is doubting this book, you shouldn’t; it opened so many doors for me. In fact, it changed my life. A cliché, maybe, but if only you knew...
“I now work with clients across the globe and it was Mike that gave me the tools and the confidence to go out there and do it.
“You may remember one teacher at school or college – the one whose class you really looked forward to, the one who you would always do your homework for on time – well, I may have had to wait a few decades but I have found in Mike what most people experience in school: a teacher who inspires.
“I now look on Mike as my mentor as I embark on a career.
“Thank you Mike”
