"Marion’s attention to detail was excellent. She picked up mistakes that others had missed and offered logical explanations for suggested changes. She preserved style and thank goodness she enjoyed the content! I’m about to ask her to work with us again!" (Charlotte Squire, journalist, editor)
"Marion provided an essential proof-reading service for the Golden Bay Writers' Group short story collection. She highlighted inconsistencies within stories and corrected spelling and grammatical errors that had not been picked up by others. Additionally, she made some helpful suggestions for rephrasing to improve flow, whilst never inhibiting the author's writing style. Thank you!" (Elaine Donovan, Golden Bay Writers Group)
"We employed Marion to proof read and double cross check our website late last year.
Her brief was to identify all spelling, grammatical and or any mixed cross references within the site.
Marion did this with extreme efficiency and located issues we had not thought were issues on the page, but when looked at in the overall context of the site were indeed issues.
We are very happy with the work she did and as a result, we are now more aware in our day to day work of grammar and spelling!
Marion is to be highly recommended for her dedication & diligence to the job at hand.
We will be happy to call on her expertise again in the future."
"Her dedication and timely manner of working makes her a pleasure to work with. She quickly understands the tasks and prioritizes them. Her accounting understanding is such that she was able to complete a full audit of our books and reduce end of year work for our accountants." (Erna Spijkerbosch, QHP Creeksyde)
"Marion's abilities with the computer ... enabled myself, Marion and her friend to collaborate in the writing of our own Reservations System. Marion's skills in working with the programmer and then in writing the manual has been of great benefit to the business." (Erna Spijkerbosch, QHP Creeksyde)

"It is our pleasure to provide a reference for the fabulous computer skills and professionalism of Ms Marion Metz who carried out the complete typing, scanning of many photographs, layout and proof reading of our 67 page book “Shipwrecks Bluff Area 1845 – 1920”. Marion showed great flair in this work and used initiative where required. She was a diligent worker and meticulously organised in her work ethic.
The book was such a success, it went to a re-print within a month and we received excellent feedback from readers for the book presentation, layout and ease of reading." (Jan Mitchell, Bluff History Group)
