I highly recommend Craig to anyone who would require editorial support, from feature writing through to proofreading, Craig’s attention to detail and keenness to be able to relate to the audience was impressive. Craig assisted me with the modernisation of an outdated newsletter for ECB’s cricket umpires and scorers into a professional magazine that the content deserved. I had a vision which Craig, managing his team, turned into reality via highly competent project management, fine tuning supplied content and developing a flatplan to work from. I extremely valued the editing and proofreading that Craig undertook for me, releasing valuable hours in the week to deliver other projects – I quickly knew I was in safe hands.
When it comes to timing, scheduling and deadlines, there are few people that I have come across in my career that are as organised and reliable as he is. Craig will always make time for the person in front of him, before getting stuck into the task at hand, it is a pleasure to work with him! Writing this testimonial took me longer because I was conscious that Craig would read it – with his eagle eyes that have a natural ability for spotting editorial errors and inconsistencies, that, even after many proofreads, overt me! He is passionate about the quality of his work and is proud to apply it within the context of sport, which is another passion of his.
Craig is fabulous to work with; always organised, professional and happy to help. He has outstanding editing and proofreading skills and has regularly helped me to simplify language in resources and books I have written. His attention to detail is second to none. These skills combined with his efficient and effective project management style have meant that I always look forward to working with Craig.
As a Director of one of the UK’s leading fitness education providers, our appearance in the public eye is very important to us so we can uphold the professional reputation that we strive for. For this reason, I was delighted with the quality of an article that Craig Smith put together for us, when we appeared in the Fitness Matters magazine which was published on behalf of the Register of Exercise Professionals. Craig’s attention to detail is superb and he certainly produces work of the highest standards and quality.
I line-managed Craig for over a year at Coachwise and he was excellent as an account and project manager, essential as a proofreader and editor, and a credit to the organisation in how diligently and reliably he approached his work.
Craig always puts the customer first. He has supported on several major national campaigns with editorial, proofing and design services. He has a brilliant ability to respond quickly to client needs, working diligently to understand client needs, ensuring everyone is kept up to date and projects run smoothly. His work has helped to create industry leading content and information on projects for National Governing Bodies of Sport, BBC and Public Health England. A great asset to the team and a great guy.
