What is Business Development?
At The Gap, we define Business Development as 'service that creates enduring value for clients'.
Why reinvent the wheel? We've created the entire end to end system for you.
We call our BD products 'Bridges', as they bridge the gap between compliance services and services that create enduring value for your clients. All of these services are suitable for typical SME clients.

We're not selling hype or hope. Our bridges are tried and tested.
We update and enhance our content weekly and regularly publish new bridges. Use these bridges with your clients and within your firm to improve your planning, structure, HR management, profit and cashflow.
Over 10,000 man (and woman!) hours have been invested in our portal. Is that really where you want to spend your time?

LEAP is a free online programme designed to keep our members accountable to implementing their BD vision. LEAP comprises 11 simple modules, each with a short video and an Action Plan. We expect you to complete LEAP within 26 weeks, though most firms will work through the modules much faster than this.
Your monthly investment in The Gap includes the below support, our members describe it as 'world class'. You also get to talk to humans (and we're a crack up bunch).
