Welcome to Devreve. We are a solution provider helping businesses and individuals get the most out of their investment in people, process, and technology. We have a particular passion for working with companies in the technology industry on developing and implementing strategic programs and solutions that drive business results.
Devreve specializes in delivering solutions for the Microsoft technology platform but we recognize that technology alone will only get a business so far. As such we also specialize in developing:
Communication strategies to help you connect with your customers, partners, and employees.
Talent management programs to retain and develop women in technology sector careers.
Partnership programs to drive mutual success for businesses looking to forge new relationships.
Previously known as Microsoft's Worldwide Partner Conference, Inspire was an amazing event that connected partners and forged new relationships that will drive business growth and success.
Devreve was proud once again this year to have had company Co-Founder and Strategic Program Specialist, Shann McGrail, delivering a few sessions at Inspire. We are especially proud to share that she was recognized with the Microsoft Inspire 2017 Speaker Excellence achievement for having engaged and inspired others through great storytelling and sharing valuable insights and information. Congratulations!
Microsoft posted an episode of its Partner Network Podcast that features our very own Shann McGrail along with partner Nancy Watt discussing how play can inspire creativity in the workplace.

Devreve and TheKreklowGroup successfully wrapped-up delivery of a program held exclusively for members of the IAMCP WIT community. The program consisted of a series of webinars and coaching sessions designed to draw on the unique strengths of this dynamic community, providing it with tools, best practices, approaches, and peer connections needed to deliver results.
At the Microsoft partner conference in 2016, Devreve and The Kreklow Group (TKG) launched SMART P2P—a framework for establishing strong, successful partner-to-partner relationships in the Microsoft ecosystem. Since then, Devreve and TKG have run programs to help partners assess, transform, and execute on partner-based business that drives results.

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.
