My name is Michael A. Rava. I’m an entrepreneur, influencer, consultant, advisor, investor, full-stack marketer, brand and retail expert, social media visionary, strategist for future tech trends, keynote speaker and transformation expert. As a high-end networker with over 30 years of business experience I have shattered quotas and outpaced competitors. My success is fueled by the strength of my relationships, the depth of my network – over 2+ MM datasets in my CRM – and my authentic desire to bring people and businesses together for mutual benefit.
Personally, I work – and live – by “The Mastermind Principle”, which consists of an alliance of two or more minds working in perfect harmony for the attainment of a common definite objective. Success does not come without the cooperation of others. And most important: I am myself. I am honest. I do my best. I take care of my family, friends and clients. I treat people with respect. I try to be a good citizen. I follow my dreams.
Professionally, I help companies identify the gaps between where they are now and where they need to be, then closes them. Whether you need to re-engineer every process and skillset, set up a new team or partnership network, evaluate funding opportunities, evaluate new tools, or simply move to a new technology platform, I’ll work closely with you to develop a completely bespoke program, addressing on the way. Moreover I help companies – and especially startups – to achieve their ambitious goals in becoming and staying international market leaders.
Transformation reshapes every aspect of a business. As technology continues to evolve, I believe that successful transformation will require careful collaboration, thoughtful planning, and the inclusion of every department. I support businesses which embrace digital humanism using technology to redefine the way people achieve their goals and enabling people to achieve things not previously possible.
During recent years, I’ve seen shifts in how traditional leadership roles operate, as silos break down and the scopes of various roles widen and change. Transformation on all levels – be it digital or not – is a central component of modern business strategy.
Every part of your business is subject to new expectations, competitors, channels, threats and opportunities. Your customers’ needs are driving change and technology is constantly shifting. – Transformation cannot happen organically. Today’s leaders actively manage the journey to excellence.
Let’s celebrate joint successes! – It’s all about shaking the hand that matters.
