I met Dawn in 2016 when she came along to a Lyme bay ladies event. Subsequently Dawn ran a very successful workshop for us ‘Stepping out of your comfort zone’ in the New year which was well attended and had positive feedback from the delegates.

Having heard great reports from other ladies about Dawn’s support, I booked for a business review and had a fantastic first meeting. Dawn gave me the practical support and encouragement I needed to drive my business forward in the direction I wanted it to go, and has avidly promoted my business enabling it to reach a new audience.

A fantastic service, I can’t recommend highly enough.

I first met Dawn at a networking event in Dorchester, she was so very positive and friendly that I arranged a business assessment meeting with her.

The meeting was fantastic – Dawn is so knowledgeable and passionate about what she does. She provided me with a vast amount of valuable information regarding every aspect of growing and maintaining my business including; planning, insurance, contracts, T’s & C’s, finance, marketing, mentoring and a large list of networking opportunities throughout Dorset.

She was very thorough and I would highly recommend her as an awesome business adviser and networking queen! I certainly would not have made as much progress, or had as many opportunities, with my business had I not met her.

Working with Dawn to plan my future career has been both enlightening and challenging. Dawn has helped me to realise what it is that I really want from my professional life and those aspects that I’m good at and enjoy and those that really don’t offer me anything in terms of satisfaction. I also now realise that no amount of money can compensate for a role that doesn’t fit with my values and skills preferences. It has been an absolute pleasure working with Dawn, it has given me the confidence to accept that what I really knew deep down all the time is the right path for me to follow. Thanks Dawn.

I worked with Dawn on my business which needed revitalising with a new marketing strategy as well as business planning and financials. I found Dawn to be extremely engaged with the business, and her ideas were well thought out with realistic costings attached.

Dawn’s wealth of business experience was evident throughout in the quality of the ideas she produced and the standard of work she delivered. I felt very confident in trusting Dawn’s advice as her expertise shone through in our meetings. Our meetings were extremely productive.

On a personal level I found Dawn to be very approachable, supportive and understanding of the challenges facing business owners.

Based on the deliverables achieved I would say Dawn exceeded my expectations and I would rate D52 as very good value for money. I would thoroughly recommend this service to any fellow business owner.

Dawn from D52ltd, contacted us with the offer of business support. She thought that advice and access to grant funding might help us to achieve our growth goals whilst also helping me and my staff to better utilise the in-house accounting package we use to manage our salon bookings. The offer of support and funding sounded perfect, plus we realised that our grasp of the business’s finances needed a fresh approach.

As a result of Dawn’s intervention we have improved, not only our in-house systems, generating statistics, identifying key sellers and tracking  performance by comparing it to up-to-the-minute industry benchmarks but also in terms of understanding what is profitable for the business.

Dawn was not afraid to be honest with us and has been instrumental in enabling us to look at new and innovative marketing ideas. I would describe Dawn as an advisor who ‘thinks outside the box, is professional and enthusiastic in her work and whose primary aim is to help businesses reach their potential”
