About the trainer

Murugaraj Shanmugam started his editing career in 2004. He held various positions in the editorial department and was senior manager for the copyediting teams when he quit his full-time job. During the almost 15 years of his full-time career, he helped organizations set up copyediting teams for internationally reputable publishers.

His passion for editing and training – especially his constant quest for innovative ideas in training –  not only earned him a name in the workplace, but gave the confidence to take up copyediting training as his entrepreneurial venture.
