Video Transcript

I think the paramount experience I’ve had in working with Lance and the Eventgroove Team, was coming out of the post March 15th announcement by the CDC that we weren’t going to have events for awhile. As an event-based division, we were stuck in the mud and had to find a way to take our product to market. We decided to partner with Eventgroove and create a white label online auction platform. In about 8 days time, we took our entire fundraising model and turned it upside down and while that wasn’t able to completely replace the revenue that would have been generated in in-person events, it exceeded the organization’s expectation of what my division could do during that lockdown. Quite frankly Ducks Unlimited is in a different place today then we would have been if we had not chosen to partner with Eventgroove.
