Become a Marketing 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 all marketers are "mavens" and that sometimes you need an expert with an outside eye, different view point and years of experience to help you level up your game.
