“As a start-up business and entrepreneur, it can be a lonely place and hard to find great partners that fully understand what you are trying to achieve.  The support and help you need to keep moving your dream forward in the right direction has been delivered by Frances and the team at OCTOPUS.  They have been amazing in helping to take my consultancy business to another level with regular marketing mentoring, straight talking and creativity that have really made a significant impact on my business.  OCTOPUS has been a key member of the team that delivered the successful launch of my new website and created the Titan Brands logo.  I honestly don’t know what I would do without their help now.”

“Frances and the team at OCTOPUS have been in charge of our online persona and social presence for a while now. They consistently come up with the goods. Frances is incredibly patient with us and her cheery demeanor lightens up any meeting. She is a constant source of great ideas and new angles, all whilst maintaining focus on our business goals. I would happily endorse OCTOPUS to any business needing to get a grip of their marketing, events, PR and social presence.”


Richard Neale
The RANt Group

“As a small but growing reward and employee experience consultancy, OCTOPUS created a website that has brought our online image into the 21st century – and beyond.  Frances and Daniel worked hard to understand QCG, our principles and values in order to design a website we can be proud of.  Using a ‘dummy’ site meant we could see and agree or change the design as it happened making the whole process quick and efficient.  We recommend OCTOPUS for anyone looking to redesign and develop their own website.”


Alan Hurst

“As a charity that has to balance and consider our costs we are careful about how we invest our income.  When working with OCTOPUS we know that we will get the same level of high service that we like to deliver to our own employers and learners.  OCTOPUS has always provided us with great networking opportunities and outstanding outcomes.”


Mark Hammond
Basingstoke ITEC

“As a small business providing HR support we have limited resources to spend on marketing – most of our work comes from repeat business and referrals, but to significantly grow we need rocket fuel. Frances and the team at OCTOPUS have helped us to define and implement a sales process that is repeatable and has measurable results.  Highly recommended.”


Peter Lawrence
Human Capital Department

“OCTOPUS has provided professional and informed advice to the Surrey Safeguarding Adults Board to help us achieve our aim of increasing awareness of safeguarding adults to members of the public. The team has produced a set of engaging and compassionate information guides that seek to highlight risks and the actions that can be taken to address these. They have done this in a warm and caring style that is educational but not alarmist.
The team hosted a workshop to engage with carers and others with experience of supporting adults at risk, seeking their views on the content and style of the guides to ensure the final product would be suitable for the intended audience.”


Amy McLeod
Surrey Safeguarding Adults Board

“OCTOPUS has helped us in all branding and marketing aspects to get our new company off the ground. We are delighted with the results and now have a brand that is professional, but friendly and approachable, supported by the full range of marketing collateral.”


Martin Pattinson
FocusFive Business Advice

“We started working OCTOPUS in 2019 and have been so impressed by the quality of the copy they produce, their consistency, reliability and above all the amazing understanding of our industry that they have already developed. We had been trying to increase our profile on social media but because we were not consistent we were achieving very little. This has all changed since we engaged OCTOPUS and we have already had several very promising meetings from this as well as significantly increasing our contacts.”


Heather O’Reilly
Jupp Castle

“As a start-up business, I relied wholly on OCTOPUS to create our corporate identity, brand, stationery and business templates so that I could begin trading with a professional and consistent image. They’re a great team to work with, very proactive and efficient – a great asset to the ongoing development of my marketing outreach.”


Brian Third

“OCTOPUS has proved to be an invaluable support to our business, driving our marketing activity with enthusiasm. They are an extremely capable partner to whom we can delegate work safe in the knowledge they will deliver to the standard we expect, on time. Most importantly, the level of service has never faltered, which allows us time to focus on meeting clients and driving our own business strategy.”


Shai Patel, Director
Generation Financial Services

“OCTOPUS has done an amazing job on my branding. I have a really modern and eye-catching logo, business cards and letterhead. They have also written articles for me, provided a social media timetable and given me tons of helpful advice. They are a one-stop shop for all your marketing needs and provided such a fast, professional, fuss free service at a very reasonable price. I can’t recommend them highly enough and will be using them again.  Thank you, OCTOPUS!”


Heather Mills
Duck Soup HR

“On first meeting OCTOPUS I hadn’t envisaged our relationship developing as it has.  At that time I needed some added support for the company, which was growing rapidly, but I also required flexibility.  Several years on OCTOPUS has become fully integrated with the way we work at Henchards, providing a flexible and proactive service spanning many administrative, marketing and support activities.  OCTOPUS has now become an integral part of our business and the service has far exceeded my expectations.”


Ian Parker, Director

“Managing a fast-paced sales and marketing department requires the support of a like minded company, which is why we partner with OCTOPUS. They have the ability to turn things around quickly and accurately which, in turn, enables us to continually seek new business opportunities. The impact they have and their ability to pick things up quickly has enabled our team to refocus their time knowing we have the right support function to help us grow.”


Anjnee Tawni, Business Development Manager

“The OCTOPUS team has done a great job finding and generating new leads for our breathe partner channel.  They’re quick to pick up our processes and have provided us with a high quality service. They are great at picking up what we need and running with it without much input from us.”


Nicky Forsyth, Partner Development Manager

“We were looking for an outsourced team that were knowledgeable, reliable and could hit the ground running to help us manage our growing social media strategy. The OCTOPUS team are exactly that! They are an incredibly friendly, responsive team who have worked to understand our requirements and were quick to learn our marketing automation software. Their work is proving invaluable to our business and we know we can count on them to produce work of the highest quality.”
