order stromectol online SMALL COMPANY, BIG CRISIS: How to Prepare For, Respond To, And Recover From A Business Crisis

2020 saw the biggest disruption to our businesses, communities and lives for decades. But the coronavirus pandemic followed close on the heels of the Australian bushfires, the resources industry crash, massive floods, the Global Financial Crisis …

It seems that we no sooner get through one crisis, when another one comes along. And that is exactly what does happen, but we treat the good times as “normal” business conditions, and the crises as the abnormal times. Australian businesses will continue to be buffeted by crises, whether they be natural disasters, economic ups and downs, a family tragedy, or even a pandemic.

Therefore, it is disingenuous to act as though the good times are “normal”, and act surprised when things go haywire. Small businesses are very vulnerable to these disruptions. Research shows that 40 percent of small businesses never reopen after a disaster, and another 25 percent, that do reopen, fail within a year. Apart from the obvious impact on the business owners, their families and their employees, these failures have huge impacts on the wider community and delay all recovery efforts.

But small business owners often find it difficult to designate time and resources for something like a disaster or an economic downturn that may or may not happen. This book clearly shows steps for the business owner to take before, during and after a crisis hits. The steps are not difficult and do not take a lot of time, but will ensure that a left-field event is not one.

This book is a compilation of the author’s own experiences and observations, and what she has learned from them.

Author and Financial Educator
Small Company, Big Crisis is packed full of useful information about how to prepare for, get through and come out the other end of a crisis in business. I love the attention to detail on what we, as business owners need to do, and especially the sections on risk management and creating a cash reserve, the latter so often the reason that businesses don’t survive a crisis.

Successfully managing risk normally comes from experience (and a dollop of luck). Business owners that had been through the Global Financial Crisis, or other downturns, were more able to navigate the recent pandemic. Bronwyn Reid selflessly shares her experience, drawing on plenty of global examples, to help you the business owner, make sure you are as well prepared as possible to deal with the inevitable bumps in the road, big or small, on your way to success. Just remember to keep your sense of humour …
IAN DAINTY

This book is an excellent synopsis of what is happening in the world of business today. It gives business owners some excellent ideas about how to navigate the future of business, especially after Covid is history. A definite read for both small and large business people.
GEOFF HETHERINGTON

If you are in business and in particular a small business this book is one you need to grab with both hands and devour! A well-structured gold mine of ‘How-To’s’, tips, and tactics that every business owner should know and have in their arsenal. Easy to read, this book will enable your business to prepare for and come through the other side of pretty much any crisis in good shape.
ANDREW GRIFFITHS
International Bestselling Author, Global Speaker, Entrepreneurial Futurist,
From my experience, working with business owners around the world, very few plan for the inevitable crisis that they have to deal with. The result is business failure. At long last a very smart and practical book has been written to help business owners start to not only navigate their way through any kind of crisis but also to learn from the crisis they face and to become much stronger. Small Company, Big Crisis is an essential read for every single business owner.

Our conference theme was “Dare to be Different”, and Bronwyn took this on board, and gave a presentation that interpreted the theme perfectly for our needs. She blended excellent research with her broad personal experience to deliver an engaging speech that delivered on our brief and resonated with her audience. Bronwyn was very professional and easy to work with, and I endorse her as an speaker.

SMALL COMPANY, BIG BUSINESS

http://thewoodlandretreat.com/home/pop-up-karma-kitchen-cafe-offering-all-things-nourishing/ SMALL COMPANY, BIG BUSINESS: How to get your small business ready to do business with big business.

At some point, every small business will have to take on a contract with a large organisation if they are going to grow. But less than 15% of small companies are actually ready to take this step. For most small business owners, getting that one, first contract with a big company is the spark that allows them to really grow and have the business they dreamed of when they started their business journey.That one, first contract gives them the credibility to bid for the next, bigger contract, and there is a lot of business available for those small business owners who know how and where to look. But being a supplier to these large organisations is not easy.

For most small business owners, it requires a complete change to the way they conduct their business. Big companies impose many restrictions on their supplier network. For many small business owners, navigating a maze of forms, licences, policies, procedures, permits and inductions can be overwhelming. And opportunities are missed.

However, it is possible to get your company ready, and exactly the same principles apply whether the contract is with Government, councils, large corporates, or even Not For Profit organisations. But almost everything that has been written about the small business/big business relationship is from the big company point of view. Small Company, Big Business will help you to navigate the difficulties of getting, and keeping, a small business ready to meet all the requirements that these big organisation impose. The book draws on my own experience, and conversations with other business owners. It provides a practical guide to overcoming the 3 main hurdles for small businesses looking to attract large buyers as clients. In this unique book, I give a 5 step framework for attracting and retaining these big buyers as customers. ·

Bronwyn is a proven champion and outspoken advocate for small businesses in regional areas. She has lived and experienced the vagaries and impacts of regional economies – the droughts, floods, commodity prices and downturns. Her driving passion to lift resilience in small businesses, to develop understanding, capacity and preparedness for the next massive impact, is the game changer regional Australia needs.

Some people are driven to networking as a job requirement … ; I can state that Bronwyn doesn’t fit this mould – she engages and networks with people because she wants to make a difference and to share her learning experience with others.
