My girlfriend (SO from this point forward) is working on a pilot project that is designed to help young start-up companies understand more about technology and how they can use it to better their business.
She is interning/part timing at the company that is a major supporter of the project and plans to show an overview to the major figures behind it.
My SO and I were reading through her proposal and we found some grammatical, syntactical, and formatting errors that may make the proposal seem a bit less professional than if they were not there. She is afraid it will be a glaring issue and will mar the presentation. Although this proposal guide is supplementary to the overall presentation. The proposal has already been reprinted and there is no opportunity to make changes now.
We were wondering if it is better to address the errors prior to the meeting by apologizing for the errors and clarifying that it is a draft of basic ideas and is open to discussions and revisions or if they should be ignored and only commented about if brought up?
