About Bronwyn Reid and The GAP Effect™
Being a smaller supplier to very big organisations has been part of my whole life. I grew up in regional Queensland, a descendant of a long line of farming entrepreneurs – selling their produce to those very big companies.
After a time in Corporate – where I saw the other side of the small company – big business transactions – I spent a decade living in underdeveloped parts of developing countries. There, an entire region can be dominated by just one, large, industry – or even just one company.
The relationship between SMEs and their big counterparts (and government) is critical to our economic success, especially in the wake of the COVID pandemic. We need them both, and they need each other, but they just don’t speak the same language. I call this The GAP Effect™ and that’s what I’m all about helping companies of all sizes to resolve.
I have been referred to as the Google Translate App for SMEs and big business. I help them to understand each other, and create valuable, profitable commercial relationships.
SMALL COMPANY, BIG CRISIS
I started writing this book back in 2018 – long before anyone had heard of COVID 19. The book begins by examining booms and busts, & why they continue to happen. But the book is about business facing crises, and these come in all sorts of guises. Natural disasters, a key employee leaving, a divorce or some other tragic life event. And of course, now we are coping with a global pandemic.
This book is a compilation of my own experiences and observations, and what I have learned from them. It equips the business owner with strategies to prepare for and respond to business crises, and will ensure that they are at the head of the queue when the inevitable upturn arrives.

Parts of Venice are regularly inundated by high tides. Nobody can stop the tides, so the Venetians have put some measures in place to reduce their vulnerability to the inevitable flooding. Like Venice, we all have some risks “hard-wired” into our businesses. How we identify them, and reduce our own vulnerability, is critical to business success.
