Enhancing. Connecting. Thriving.

What we do


1450MC hosts monthly meet-ups specifically designed to get your brain juices flowing and connect you with those you both want, and need, to know. An educational component makes up the majority of our events, with networking time afterward to get to know others in the great field of marketing, communications, and all things creative.

Our founders


Established in June 2015 after collaborating for nearly a year, 1450 Marketing Collective was the brainchild of three local women who live and breathe creativity, connection, and community.


Penny Manners, Jill Kelly and Kristine Knourek (from left to right in the image shown) are three passionate individuals who strive to not only enhance the marketing world, but the community they live in too. 


These ladies work to build compelling events - with a real focus on local talent and topics - stimulating the creative in us all.
