Become a Expert, By Hiring a Maven

Our philosophy is to assist, help, coach and guide individuals and companies until they don't need us anymore. Post-engagement clients have us in for the occasional tune-up and on speed dial for those on the fly moments that need some extra creative maven power.


Why Creative Maven?

A maven is a trusted expert in a particular field, who seeks to pass knowledge on to others. The word maven comes from Hebrew, meaning "one who understands", based on an accumulation of knowledge.

Our name Creative Maven came from our founder Heather Newman reading the Malcolm Gladwell best seller, The Tipping Point, and loving his description of those who are intense gatherers of information and impressions, and so are often the first to pick up on new or nascent trends as "mavens".

We believe that you can become the "expert" or maven of your business by creating a clearer message, being consistent and truly connecting with your clients to solve their problems.  We bring an outside eye, different view point and years of experience to help you level up your game.
