[how we do it]

The Maven Method®

You might have gathered by now, we call ourselves the HAVEN Mavens – because we are experts at community branding.

We developed a proprietary process, the Maven Method® to develop, design and deploy measurable branding and strategic communications campaigns.

Using the Maven Method®, we uncover your brand’s unique purpose, your position in the marketplace and how to communicate to your core customer to create community in and around your organization.

Why community branding?
Brands that invest in building company culture and community have a 78% success rate and reduce costly employee turnover.

We partner with visionary leaders.

While government and nonprofits remain a good part of our business today, we also work with businesses and healthcare enterprises looking to build community in their organization and create a community of promoters around their brand.
