    Date & Time




    Once you know how to run spellcheck in Word and InDesign, you've protected yourself from many typographic errors. But what about shortening text to fit a page-limited proposal - without adjusting the margins? Or presenting technical information in your company's brand voice? In our May MIX Session, we'll take your editing skills to the next level by focusing on rewriting and revising text. Using real-life examples from proposals and marketing materials, we'll employ editing best practices to make the content clearer and more concise. We will discuss editing and proofreading techniques to improve the readability of content, as well as ways to identify weak words and options for replacing them.

    As mid-Atlantic regional marketing manager for VHB, Jen McGovern, CPSM knows what it takes to put together a strong proposal. She oversees the marketing efforts for seven offices across Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina and the District of Columbia, which means she has prepared and reviewed hundreds of proposals. A frequent writer and presenter, Jen is President of the SMPS Washington DC chapter and a member of the SMPS Marketer Editorial Commitee. She achieved her Certified Professional Services Marketer (CPSM) designation in 2015.
