Fun times celebrating our Avyance 5-year anniversary at our company picnic last week! We basked in the sun, waded in the Shenandoah River, and enjoyed each other’s company. Love this team!


Love is love. In a world divided on many fronts, we believe love is always good and pure. We are proud to support Pride and the LGBTQIA+ community, and to celebrate the uniqueness of every human.

Trash, trash, go away, come again some other… WAIT, no, don’t. The Avyance team joined again with Langley High School seniors for an Adopt-A-Highway road clean up. Our team spent 25 person-hours scouring the roads, yielding over 15 large bags or trash. Mind you, our last clean-up of the same roads was 8 months ago. That’s a lot of new trash! We’ll keep doing our part to keep Northern Virginia beautiful, but gosh, wouldn’t it be great if people stopped littering? Many thanks to the Langley seniors who helped!

Failure - such a harsh word. Let’s try to use “lesson” instead. Success is built on a series of lessons, some that step us forward, some back. Stretching and growing ourselves (and our businesses) is the only way to success. And if we didn’t have some painful lessons along the way, we’d never get to the goal. Our Avyance hat is off to NIKE, for their messaging about growth, and their great reframing of the word failure. May we all see painful lessons as building blocks to better.

The “now” of work. We look back at 2019 and wonder how we balanced it all (suits and stilettos for 10+ hour days—anyone else?). Now work is woven into life—it’s a zoom call in slippers with a finger hovering over mute to silence the barking dogs. Now work/life balance means un-weaving work from life, being present in each discretely, and not always having one foot in each world. Here’s to everyone who has found the right balance and is thriving, and to everyone else, the struggle is real, and Team Avyance feels ‘ya.


Avyance is now 8(a) certified!

We are proud to share the news that Avyance was accepted into the US Small Business Administration (SBA) 8(a) business development program. Of 24 million US-based small businesses, fewer than 9,000 have 8(a) certification. This 9-year program allows participants to compete for federal sole-source contracts with up to $4 million ceiling for goods and services. Avyance is thrilled to expand our relationships within the federal government to help our clients secure direct access to the management consulting support they need.

It’s a dog’s life… or so they say. Meet Malou Jeppesen, who’s living her best life while visiting Avyance headquarters. Avyance consultant Warren Sloop taught Malou a few client service best practices: no barking at clients, commit to continuous learning, and never, ever eat deliverables.


EUREKA! Avyance has found that magic formula for a fun Zoom happy hour. Aviation trivia + fun facts about the team = a lot of laughter (and some surprise!). We learned that Andrea is a trivia ringer, Trish “Rocks” the elevator, and Brad (aka Matt Damon) is a Fuji-climber. And Jessica, thanks for NOT going into a legal career, you’re an excellent consultant. Big kudos to the host with the most…Warren. Thanks for the happy, happy hour!

A benefit of being a small business is that your team really does feel like family. We’re delighted to congratulate Lt. Commander Dennis Harbin, judge advocate, for his recognition with the prestigious Richard R. Baxter Military Prize. Congrats to Dennis, Jessica, and the whole Harbin family! It’s an honor to have you as friends and “family.”


Lt. Cmdr. Dennis Harbin – a judge advocate currently serving as a joint legal observer and trainer for the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff – was awarded the 2021 Richard R. Baxter Military Prize by the American Society of International Law (ASIL) Lieber Society on the Law of Armed Conflict. His writing topic was “Targeting Submarine Cables.” Read more about his accomplishment! ⚓



Social distancing done right! Our Avyance family had a unique, COVID-safe meet-n-greet when one of our team members sailed by the house of her colleague’s family. What a fun way to see each other and share in beautiful weather!

From our family to yours... wishing you smooth sailing and a healthy spring season!


We are excited to support this group, help document their proceedings, and support the efforts focused on today’s youth and the future of the aviation industry.


Technology is good, but… it’s just not the same to see our friends, colleagues, and clients on the small screen every day. We miss the energy, subtle physical cues, warm handshakes, and casual chit-chat of in person meetings. Don’t get us wrong, we love sweatpants and slippers too. But until we can get back to in-person meetings, all the comfortable clothes in the world won’t be enough. For now, we’ll just stare deeply into the eyes of our family members… dogs included.


High-performing teams have a mix of skills and abilities. At Avyance, it’s the diversity of perspectives and intrinsic motivators that drive our team to deliver excellence. We’re all strong on multiple fronts, but we each bring our own talents to the table. Some of our team are gifted with creative vision and out-of-the-box solution development. Some are strongest in delivering structured, organized methodologies and plans for ex*****on. Others intuitively understand people and know what motivates and resonates for clients and colleagues. And some of us are hard-driving, always-on, forces of nature who stop at nothing to deliver the best products. Thank you to our Avyance employees for bringing your whole selves to work every day.

Virtual conference 09/24/2020

As owners of a small business, we wear multiple hats. It’s tempting to try to do everything ourselves, especially at the start, when the business is new. But there’s no bootstrapping that will replace true expertise. Over the years, subject matter experts have saved us many headaches and boosted our performance. From our CPA expert in finance, to our tax advisor for compliance, and our legal team for contracts, we’ve appreciated the counsel of our specialists. We are grateful for their help, and the help of other smalls. Thanks for keeping us sane and successful!


Virtual conference Meet other business owners and get expert advice at this free 3-day conference.


We founded Avyance on the belief that integrity must be demonstrated in all transactions. Over the past three years, we’ve partnered with small and large businesses and found that – as in personal relationships – trust is key to productive collaboration. Open and honest communication, kept confidences, prioritized shared benefits over individual rewards, and reliable behavior are multipliers that yield returns for clients, employees, and the bottom line. We are proud to live our values in all that we do – and honored to work with business partners we trust!


Today we’re celebrating all the federal workers who have moved mountains to get our U.S. government operating at full speed during the pandemic. It’s taken a huge, rapid culture and technology shift for agencies to adjust to full-time telework. We understand the change hasn’t been easy, yet from what we’ve seen, it’s gone pretty smoothly. Thank you, federal workers, for showing that your true colors are red, white, and blue, and for your dedication to getting the job done. We appreciate you!


As Hurricane Laura bears down on our Southern states, Avyance sends wishes for health and safety to those in its path. We appreciate the emergency workers and essential personnel who put themselves in harm’s way to keep others safe.

Avyance has hit an exciting milestone, our third anniversary! We are grateful for the trust of our clients, the faith of our teaming partners, and for the smarts and dedication of our employees. From the 2017 dream of our founding partners to industry awards, winning proposals, and the success of today, we are proud of our Avyance journey. We have exciting new developments coming soon - stay tuned for the next chapter as we continue to grow!


Proud to support this effort and looking forward to the contributions of this powerful group!

Green and clean! Avyance held another roadside clean-up in Vienna and McLean, VA. It was a sunny, hot day, and we picked up trash while VDOT workers mowed the medians. By the end of the day, our roads were tidy and clean, just like the fresh look after our first post-quarantine haircuts!


What’s in a logo? For Avyance, the inspiration came from the sculpture “Bird in Space” by Constantin Brancusi, conveying the essential nature of flight. Our logo combines the upward motion and focal point of the emblem, with the clean, modern, and stable font. It reflects our core belief for branding – that a great logo must be simple, memorable, scalable, versatile, and durable.

We believe in equality and justice for all, and we stand against racism. We are committed to inclusion, diversity, and furthering the national dialogue about much-overdue change.

What’s in a name? For Avyance, it’s Flight + Action. Avyance is a blend of AVY (derived from Latin AVI: bird) and ANCE (Latin: quality, action, process). A bird in flight is graceful and elegant, powered by perfectly structured wings, an innate feel for air dynamics, experience, and determination. Our solutions are like the bird’s flight – well-designed, functional, and ready-for-action. Let us show you what we mean: https://avyance.com/services/

Got a meeting? Take a walk 05/05/2020

“Fresh air drives fresh thinking.” It’s a simple idea. To get out of the box…get out of the box! Literally. Get out and walk for the next team telecon (but maybe mute the heavy breathing). We love this Ted Talk because it inspired us to get moving. We’re making sure that “work from home” doesn’t only mean “work from the sofa.”

Got a meeting? Take a walk Nilofer Merchant suggests a small idea that just might have a big impact on your life and health: Next time you have a one-on-one meeting, make it into a "walking meeting" -- and let ideas flow while you walk and talk.

Our favorite color is GREEN! Happy Earth Day! We’re looking forward to our next Adopt-A-Highway clean up.

We love helping keep our community green.

The unfortunate math behind consulting companies 04/20/2020

“How hard could it be? They must be making bank!” Answer: it’s hard. And no, they’re probably not. This article explains the math of running a consulting business. Business ownership is rewarding - much like putting kids through college. We’re proudly investing in the future, and savoring beans and rice along the way.


The unfortunate math behind consulting companies Consulting can be a great way to earn a living and a smart way to self-finance a startup, but the business model isn’t as good you might think, and there are pitfalls everywhere. Learn them, …

This week, we’d like to shout out to mother nature. We appreciate it for bringing sunshine and fresh spring colors into our lives. Several of our colleagues went on solo walks and nature hikes this weekend, and they’ve shared a few beautiful images of flowers, nature’s masterpieces. Thanks to the team for capturing these uplifting images, and for reminding us of all that’s naturally beautiful around us!


Remote work and flex schedules are baked into our Avyance DNA. The reason is simple – efficiency and flexibility are key to our business success. Great teamwork has never meant being under the same roof. Remote work enables us to use the best talent for the job regardless of employees’ physical location. Our team happy hours are now via video, but we’re still toasting to the feeling of reward we get from delivering on-point solutions for our clients.


Formal learning, done informally. Engaged employees, yet social distancing. Too good to be true? It’s not! Avyance is helping clients engage their employees in structured development through social, mobile, micro-learning activities. Using collaboration platforms like Microsoft Yammer, we design and deliver training that is fun, convenient, user-friendly – all presented in manageable chunks of time. Let us know what engagement or learning challenges you’re trying to solve, and we’ll be glad to help!
