Partnership programs to drive mutual success for businesses looking to forge new relationships.

Devreve and partner TKG have co-sponsored Magdarlyne Perrier, a young Haitian woman with dreams of gaining the technical skills she needs to one day pursue a career in healthcare.

You can read more about Magdarlyne and the Haiti initiative here.

I have worked with Shann & Devreve on team-building, business communications, and one-on-one and group coaching. The results are always outstanding... and I have high standards.
Shann McGrail's leadership of WCT's mentorship and career sponsorship programs, along with her strong management and communications skills, have helped WCT to support more women in Communications, Media, and Technology to advance their careers and make an impact on Canada's Digital Economy.
The "Blast Through with Trust and Teams" session gave me a new perspective on building teams and effective team work. The potential of speeding up business when everyone is open and building on ideas is powerful.
