I came across this on a webpage while I was looking for potential speakers for a conference we’re working on.
Here’s the problem (according to the Gregg Reference Manual):
perspective – means to view in correct proportion
prospective – means anticipated
So I’m thinking what they are really looking for are anticipated speakers, not speakers they will view in the correct proportion (wrong on so many levels). I have emailed them about this error so they can fix it. But using it as a teaching moment, I include it here, leaving off the identifying information. My goal is never to embarrass a person or company who has an error in a public place, but to use it to teach you all what is really correct.
