My name is Dawn Crossingham and I am the owner and founder of D52 – The Business Toolkit.

I have worked with business owners just like you for over 13yrs and have seen the value of realistic and honest business advice.

Focusing on your business growth potential and seizing opportunities is the key to business success. Many people understand this philosophy however fail to set time aside to plan for growth and often lack the ‘tools’ to do the job.

Again and again I see business owners who have not only allowed their business to dictate their future direction but have additionally grown to resent the business they own because they have not stopped to reflect on where their business is destined, nor the purpose for which they started out initially.

By engaging with me, you can be assured that tried and tested methods of helping you to reach you goals are utilised. I do not engage a one size fits all approach, and certainly am passionate that you ‘make your business work’ for you.

Whether through one-to-one support or group workshops, you will gain invaluable insights about your business in order to take the correct steps toward business growth.

With my support you will chart a course of action and be accountable to someone who will offer measured, firm and practical advice.

I care about your business’ success, enough to outline any pitfalls and encourage you to consider the final consequences of your plans. I will supply the relevant tools for you to run your business effectively whilst directing you to the additional support you need


I have worked extensively with new and established Businesses for 13yrs to offer independent and honest business reviews (references adjacent to this page).

Business Advice

I have a proven track record of helping UK start-up, early stage and mature small to medium sized businesses undertake a thorough business analysis in order to identify USP’s and business growth areas. I help businesses to increase their sales & profits and developing realistic cash flow forecasts; identifying and implementing a robust and workable business strategy.

When I undertake a review, it is essentially a chance for you as the business owner to offload, discuss and plan with an external objective and experienced advisor. Together we identify key trends within the business in order to optimise sales and profits and execute a long term strategy which enables your business to grow and stay true to your goals for being in business.

I had a fabulous meeting with Dawn Crossingham. I hadn’t a clue about how to take my business forward, but Dawn listened, asked questions and she gave me some invaluable advice. She was pleasant and friendly throughout, and her follow-up notes after our meeting were fantastic. If you have a small business and don’t know which way to turn, I highly recommend Dawn.

My whole family and I have used Dawn’s career advice services over many years’, and found her very encouraging, insightful and helpful. She delivers on promises and has helped my wife and I improve our employment prospects as well as engaged with our teenage daughter supporting her in her career development and options. I would recommend her without reservation
