We know what works
Having worked with businesses of all sizes for almost 20 years, it’s fair to say we have built up a wealth of experience when it comes to what does and doesn’t work when trying to grow a small business.
We also have the experience of working with many specialists across several disciplines. Our client referrals are built on experience, quality and trust.
Whether you are just starting out, changing direction completely or at a total crossroads we will be able to get you back on track, and you will be surprised how easy it is.
Our approach is relaxed, professional and personal. Although we work remotely, we get to know all of our clients personally. And if we don’t believe we are the right fit, we will let you know, with no pressure.
You will find getting in touch with us one of the most valuable steps your business will ever take!
Who Are We?
Kerry-Anne Kitson – Website Design & Social Media
I’m Kerry-Anne and I set up Toucan as a Limited company in 2021 after a hugely successful period as a sole trader.
My early background (pre-family) was with the Metropolitan Police Service as a Senior Crime Analyst. I trained extensively in analytical and research skills and went on to specialise in murder and serious crime.
Following the birth of my daughter in 2003 I took a career break but during this period had somehow to earn a small income to fund my shopping habits! As a self defence trainer for the police, & a qualified aerobics instructor I went on to qualify as a personal trainer and children’s fitness instructor and set up a fitness company. This was all great until a period of illness left me with no balance and no way to continue training.
Shortly after I helped a friend set up a children’s drama and dance company which led to a flourishing relationship where I managed all aspects of the business whilst she did the creative job. Strategy, marketing and finance were all key, and we grew her company from just a handful of children to over 150 children coming through the door every week.
During this period, we took up residency at a 500 seater, Grade II Listed theatre and I very quickly became involved with assisting the theatre make changes to it’s own business model as it was finding itself in difficulty. Again, with an analytical brain, a different approach to the business model and a bit of creativity we were able to turn the theatre back into profit within year one of the plan.
At this stage, I had a decision to make. Whether to stay as an employee with the theatre or to continue to do what I love most, helping business owners grow their businesses. This was a fairly easy decision as it’s the variety I love.
Since early 2019 I have worked with several clients and have worked extensively to develop my website skills. I now focus purely on websites and social media.
