CONSULTING FIRM EXPANDS TO CURRY

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.

  • Jobs report may test market's complacency
    The U.S. stock market has been quiet this week - too quiet. Wall Street has traded in a tight range of late, with both volatility and trading volumes drying up as the earnings season winds down and Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen's recent Congressional testimony delivered no surprises. About 238,000 jobs are expected to have been added in February, according to the non-farm payroll report that will be released on Friday, down from the 257,000 added in January. "Economic data will be the biggest driver of market moves over the next month, and the key one is the jobs report," said Jim McDonald, chief investment strategist at Chicago-based Northern Trust Asset Management.
  • U.S. economy slowed in fourth quarter, but growth outlook still favorable
    U.S. economic growth braked more sharply than initially thought in the fourth quarter amid a moderate increase in business inventories and a wider trade deficit, but strong domestic demand brightened the outlook. Gross domestic product expanded at a 2.2 percent annual pace, revised down from the 2.6 percent pace estimated last month, the Commerce Department said on Friday. The economy grew at a 5 percent rate in the third quarter. Businesses accumulated $88.4 billion worth of inventory in the fourth quarter, far less than the $113.1 billion the government had estimated last month.
  • Dudley, top U.S. economists urge later Fed rate hike
    Raising interest rates too late is safer than acting too early, an influential Federal Reserve official said on Friday, endorsing a high-profile research paper that argues the U.S. economy, given time, can rebound to the strong growth rate to which Americans are accustomed. The paper by four top U.S. economists, presented on Friday to a roomful of powerful central bankers in New York, argues the Fed would be wise to keep rates at rock bottom for longer than planned and then tighten monetary policy more aggressively. New York Fed President William Dudley, who offered a critique of the paper, cited currently low inflation and warned against being too anxious to tighten monetary policy. The U.S. central bank is in the global spotlight as it weighs when to lift rates after more than six years near zero, and how quickly to tighten policy thereafter.
