CONSULTING FIRM EXPANDS TO CURRY Print E-mail
June 27, 2000 11:00 pm

The consulting group Kinesis Inc. is expanding its services to offer assistance to organizations in Curry County.

Based in Ashland, Kinesis provides a spectrum of integrated services, specializing in strategic planning and facilitation, grant proposal development, public relations and graphic design.

I will be traveling regularly to Curry County to talk with interested clients, said Karen Carnival, chief executive officer. We are expanding our services because there isnt any single entity in the region providing the same breadth and scope of services that Kinesis provides.

We help non-profit organizations better serve the needs of their constituents and we help businesses to streamline their planning processes. The result is a more efficient system, which results in increased revenue for an organization.

Kinesis evolved out of Carnivals earlier business, Write Away, which focused on grant writing.

Since 1996, Carnival has obtained more than $1.8 million in awards for southern Oregon non-profits.

With the 1999 birth of Kinesis, service areas grew to include public relations, strategic planning, and graphic design with the inclusion of Joan Haukom, Wendy Maynard, and Shawn Busse on the Kinesis management team, and a core team of eight consultants who specialize in different areas, Carnival said.

Kinesis assembles the right group of professional contractors for each project to help organizations turn their ideas into dynamic results, Maynard said.

We strengthen our clients capabilities by providing tools that promote their organizations and build relationships with their target audiences, Maynard said.

Kinesis has worked with organizations in southern Oregon including Providence Community Health Foundation, Rogue Community College, the Rogue Institute for Ecology and Economy, Jefferson Public Radios Jefferson Monthly, Oregon Coalition on Housing and Homelessness, and the Parent Relief Nursery.

The Kinesis team may be reached at (541) 482-3600. For information, the companys web site address is http://www.kinesisinc.com.

  • Europe subdued, Russia shares tumble on new sanctions
    The euro was stuck near its lowest level since November and Russian shares tumbled for a third straight day on Monday as new European sanctions for Moscow chilled the already frosty relationship between the two. The 28-nation EU reached an outline agreement on Friday on its first economic sanctions on Russia, which said the moves would hamper cooperation between the two and undermine the fight against terrorism. Having suffered on Friday, Europe's main bourses were again subdued. There was more pain for Russian stocks after a report that shareholders in defunct oil producer Yukos had won a $50 billion international court case against Russia.
  • Pfizer's need for deal looms larger with earnings report
    Pfizer Inc's vulnerability to cheaper generics and its weak roster of experimental medicines will be on display Tuesday when the company reports quarterly earnings, reviving interest in its pursuit of AstraZeneca Plc or other deals to fortify its pipeline. While many industry watchers expect Pfizer to re-engage with Britain's AstraZeneca in coming months, some say the U.S. drugmaker should consider targets more focused on biotechnology, a strategy that has paid off for Merck & Co and Bristol-Myers Squibb Co. Although Pfizer is conducting trials of promising products - including breast cancer drug palbociclib and vaccines against meningitis and staph aureus - it needs far more drugs to generate meaningful sales growth, said Ori Hershkovitz, analyst with the Tel Aviv-based Sphera Fund, which holds Pfizer shares.     "Pfizer is in a very desperate spot, having seen most of its pipeline disappoint and facing multiple patent expirations," he said.
  • Obama could curb corporate 'inversions' on his own: ex-U.S. official
    President Barack Obama could act without congressional approval to limit a key incentive for U.S. corporations to move their tax domiciles abroad in so-called "inversion" deals, a former senior U.S. Treasury Department official said on Monday. By invoking a 1969 tax law, Obama could bypass congressional gridlock and restrict foreign tax-domiciled U.S companies from using inter-company loans and interest deductions to cut their U.S. tax bills, said Stephen Shay, former deputy assistant Treasury secretary for international tax affairs in the Obama administration.
