Mary and I have worked together on numerous annual reports and other corporate publications over the years; I consider her to be crucial in ensuring we continue to publish premium-quality content for our stakeholders. Corporate documents leave an impression of our organisation on thousands of stakeholders and simple errors can cost us greatly or, at the very least, make us look foolish. She is a pleasure to work with and having Mary and her team’s expertise on hand provides us with the confidence we need, every time.

Mary’s proofreading service is a routine part of our document release process and I am impressed by the number of errors detected even after several approvals in-house. Every piece of our promotional material is passed through the vigilant eyes of Mary and her team; this ensures that highly accurate and consistent messages reach our customers.
