We believe staying active and social in the community by continually integrating, networking, and meeting
new people is crucial to our value.
Collectively we have developed several initiatives and events in an effort to stay connected with a diverse network of professionals and small businesses. We hope you identify with one or more and participate.
Coffee + Connections
The CreativeMktGroup Coffee + Connections is a monthly event in which a small business entrepreneur co-host speaks about the strengths and successes of their marketing efforts. The morning event also includes strategic networking and connections, as well as plenty of caffeine to get you started for the day!
Virtual Marketing Workshop
Lead by Account Manager, Amanda Mahon, these online webinars cover certain aspects of digital marketing and its best practices. Learn more on how to further your marketing efforts and grow your small business, start-up or non-profit.
EntreHustle, led by CreativeMktGroup founder, Natalie Toalson McNamara, is for women who are highly driven individuals and passionate about entrepreneurship in their careers and business. As dynamic females, we thrive to meet new like-minded friends with whom we can authentically celebrate our successes and support each other with our challenges.
To grow any business or organization to the next level, creativity and innovation must be a priority and can seldom be done alone. The purpose of this series is to allow a small group of participants to brainstorm and discuss new ideas and as a result, be motivated by new, creative, and innovative ideas.
