Neuro Linguistics Programming (NLP), is a unique approach to communication, personal development, and psychotherapy.  NLP draws on the divergent but intertwining fields of neurology, linguistics, and computer science to create a multidimensional process that can enact powerful change in behavior. The goal of NLP is to help individuals and organizations identify core values, then to gain full control over mental, emotional, and physical states of well-being, and allow everyone to communicate more effectively and manage relationships with others. All REV trainers and coaches are certified NLP Practitioners, Master Practitioners, Trainers or Master Trainers, with expertise in corporate and public trainings.

See a video from founder and CEO, Jeff Tan, about working with REV.

“The three accomplishments that I am proud about is that I took initiative on projects that needed to be done, I taught myself how to market on social media in China and the USA, and I worked well in an international office. I figured out ways for the company to market on social media and was able to increase their original following by more than 1000% in two months. I self-taught myself how to use Facebook, WeChat, Twitter, Weibo, and Pinterest to market.”

“What stood out to me about REV was the diversity in the office. There are men and women from every corner of the world working together in harmony towards a common goal, which is such an amazing sight to witness. They were very welcoming and inclusive of me as a new member of the team. They love their work and had great respect for the people they work with. Jeff is an extremely intelligent and creative individual who is not afraid to go out on a limb to chase his dreams. I knew that working with him would be a fun, unique and enriching experience for me.

Professionally I learned to complete work in fields that I knew little or nothing about. My boss Jeff had me working on projects that I had no prior knowledge of at all, which was often stressful and overwhelming. I felt totally lost at times and had no clue if I was going in the right direction or not. With the help of Jeff and my other coworkers I was able to overcome my fear of failing and making mistakes. I learned that it was important just to try your best and not be afraid to start over if you didn’t do it right the first time.”
