Operating as Exact Edits I edit and proofread written English. I have a varied business background, including consulting in training and development, so I work effectively in a number of subject areas. Recent work includes marketing material for a service industry client and training material on health and wellness. Do email me with any questions you may have.

Exact Edits is classified as an Exempt Micro Enterprise (EME) and a Level 4 Contributor to B-BBEE, so your company can claim at least 100% of its spend with me towards its own B-BBEE scorecard.

I use Skype by appointment only, and Dropbox to send and receive large documents.
