Developing an Eye for Accuracy



Sep 11, 2019 09:00 - 17:00


Taunton Racecourse
Orchard Portman


You know how you kick yourself when you make a silly mistake? Perhaps you’ve got a couple of numbers in the wrong order, or emailed a customer using the incorrect spelling of their name – these little mistakes are not only irritating, they waste a lot of your time and potentially do a lot of damage too. The cost of mistakes is often considerable. So it’s reassuring to know that accuracy is a skill we can develop just like any other!

All human beings (including your boss) sometimes make mistakes when working with data. The good news is that there’s a fun, interactive and really practical training programme called Developing an Eye for Accuracy. Come on the course to learn why mistakes happen and how to use simple and effective accuracy skills.

The session is friendly, supportive and highly participative – and by the end of the course you’ll know exactly how to read, check and transfer information accurately. Developing an Eye for Accuracy is fun, it's useful and it's important.
