Identity reviews and copy editing: I help to maintain the highest quality standards of Experian’s print and digital materials by reviewing and editing documents for style, grammar, punctuation and brand identity. This process includes high-profile events with multiple deliverables such as Experian’s annual client-facing Vision conference, as well as the Sales Summit conference for Experian’s internal salespeople.
