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.

  • Pipeline delay gives boost to Obama's political base
    The latest delay to a final decision on the Keystone XL oil pipeline will reinforce a White House strategy to energize President Barack Obama's liberal-leaning base before fall elections in which Democrats risk losing control of the U.S. Senate. Environmentalists, worried about the project's effect on climate change, have put enormous pressure on the president to reject the pipeline from Canada's oil sands, staging demonstrations outside the White House and protests in states where he travels. A decision to approve it now could have prompted that vocal group, which was instrumental in electing Obama in 2008 and 2012, to sit out the November 4 congressional elections. The State Department's announcement on Friday that it would give government agencies more time to study the project was seen by strategists from both parties as a move to prevent that and boost Obama in the eyes of his supporters.
  • Pfizer considers $100 billion bid for AstraZeneca: report
    U.S. pharmaceutical giant Pfizer (PFE) has approached British rival AstraZeneca (AZN.L) to propose a 60 billion pound ($101 billion) takeover, Britain's Sunday Times reported. The paper cited senior investment bankers and industry sources saying that informal conversations about a deal had taken place between the two but that no talks were currently under way after AstraZeneca resisted the approach. Pfizer and AstraZeneca both declined to comment on the report to Reuters. AstraZeneca, Britain's second-biggest pharmaceuticals group, has been frequently touted as a potential takeover target as it wrestles with patents expiring on a number of best-selling drugs, leaving future growth uncertain.
  • Wall Street Week Ahead: Spring fever brings hope for U.S. earnings
    Several behemoths, including Apple, the largest U.S. company by market value, as well as Microsoft, McDonald's (MCD.N) and AT&T (NYS:T), are due to report earnings. They'll be accompanied by highfliers like Netflix and Facebook, giving the first real cross-section of the state of corporate America as temperatures rise across the country and investors hope to put the cold weather behind them. Strategists will also be looking for clues on how badly China's slowdown hits U.S. corporate results. The first batch of earnings came out as equities were working their way through a selloff led by trading-crowd favorites like Netflix and the biotech stocks.
