REVVCREW UNLOCKS AND PERPETUATES
INNOVATION AND GROWTH
FOR ASSOCIATIONS AND NONPROFIT ORGANIZATIONS BY
BUILDING ABSOLUTELY ENGAGED TEAMS.
We believe organization-wide innovation occurs best in team-centric environments because, let’s face it, employees who are engaged, empowered, and encouraged contribute in awesome and unexpected ways.
Oh, yeah, there's a reason why we believe this: the organizations where these individuals work also make more money.

"Surprising as it may be, flocks...are never led by a single individual. Even in the case...of geese, which appear to have a leader, the movement of the flock is actually governed collectively by all of the flock members."
-Adrian Alfano, Cornell University
Companies with an engaged workforce improve operating income by 19%, while companies with low engagement results see operating income decline by 32%.

ENGAGED EMPLOYEES AND INCOME
We promise there won't be any rope bridge-building or close-your-eyes, now 'catch-me-I'm-falling' exercises. That's because we aren't organizational development consultants. Not even close.
Rather, RevvCrew is a group of seasoned association execs that creates success by deploying a 360-degree process that enables associations to move in one direction, in unison.
OUR PROVEN METHOD
RevvCrew first assesses the revenue-producing programs in your organization and how you go about generating these sources of income.
Upon this evaluation, we construct staff teams, enabling your staff to:
Call, e-mail us or drop a line to learn how we can help you revv your organization.
You get it.
You know that a highly-competent staff — which you have on board — should be able to drive innovation within your association or nonprofit organization, taking advantage of so many marketplace opportunities.
Why, though, is having them function as one coherent unit moving toward the same goal typically the exception and not the norm? Your team has tons of ideas, but you just can't seem to get them identified, prioritized and implemented.
To address this, like many of your peers, you do (or have done) one of two logical things:
HOST AN IDEATION RETREAT
Here you host lots of meetings to ideate and share objectives and make new plans, all in an effort to get everyone focused.
Precious hours are spent in conference rooms, where folks offer ideas, put colorful stickies on favorites and leadership walks away with a list of the top three or four things they need to be doing to fix things up. Sometimes these are in line with what senior management wants to do; other times...not so much.
BRING IN THE CONSULTANTS
By hiring a strategic management expert you anticipate a new outside perspective will help shed light on why things aren't working the way they should.
After interviewing key and executive staff, the consultant delivers a report that includes a laundry list of the many activities you should consider under-taking, and wishes you success. Maybe you attempt to advance a couple of these ideas. Maybe not.
In either instance, your most precious resource, time, is consumed. More tasks are assigned to your overburdened, unengaged team. Invariably, the initial energy seeps away and things eventually go back to the way they were.
This we know. We used to be the ones hiring the consultants and sitting in those meetings.
Like you, we wanted better results.
We get it.
With decades of member-based association, for-profit, marketing, and senior-level operations experience, the RevvCrew team has 'been there and done that,' when it comes to successfully overcoming the challenges of growing income, building high-performance teams, launching new products and services, navigating the nuances of board relationships, serving on senior leadership teams and helping smash internal silos.
EXAMPLES OF SUCCESS
Through our work we have discovered and refined the process to ensure employees work in concert. And we've got the bruises and a few scars to prove it. Not to mention a few gray hairs. (At least one of us, that is.)
After introducing a new core team process at a national technology membership organization, exhibit and sponsorship revenue growth increased nearly $850,000 in less than four years.
At one medical association, we grew advertising sales revenue more than 40% in less than one year after redesigning the sales team and rolling out an improved online publication experience.
Improve engagement of your existing staff in every facet of the key programs you offer members and customers, including conferences, industry relations and content publishing.
Establish innovative conference and event experiences that attract and captivate both attendees and exhibitors.
Create breakthrough non-dues revenue ideas that lead to valuable products and services, while sunsetting irrelevant and outdated resources.
Streamline communication vehicles to improve open and readership rates, while simultaneously increasing advertising and content sponsorships.
Centralize disparate selling functions to eliminate redundant activities, improving vendor-driven revenue and relationships.

Without going into the complex science behind this phenomenon, murmuration boils down to three key behaviors, which RevvCrew applies as the ultimate means of engaging employees to grow non-dues revenues.
We take inspiration not only from years of experience within associations combined with the most contemporary applications of management and leadership — but also from nature.
RevvCrew has found the murmuration behavior of the European starling — when thousands of individual birds are able to act as one organism in dynamic, highly fluid and responsive ways — teaches much about working together.
Engage and collaborate, becoming part of the solution
Develop new ideas and solutions, together, that align to the mission
Maximize transparency through shared information
Cross-explore priorities and challenges in supportive and accountable ways
Moreover, we make certain teams are fully equipped with the practical hands-on tools and methods — such as clear charters, goal setting and measurement forms, among others — in order to perform at their very best.
This easy-to-implement and highly-replicable approach can be applied in nearly every revenue-producing area of your operation, be it developing vendor-based income, creating new products, improving your annual conference attendee and exhibitor experiences, or delivering the most streamlined and lucrative publications and content.
Finally, once your staff has adopted these new high-performing team behaviors from our straightforward active learning methodology, the benefits of revving carry on at your association long after RevvCrew has left your building.
