It all starts with Planning

We believe organizations with a vision and a road map are destined for success; achievable plans are the cornerstone of Kinexus Consulting.  We work together with you to bring your vision into reality with clear objectives, action plans and evaluation tools. We know that the success of your projects begins at the planning stage; we work with you to create a solid plan that can be adapted throughout the process right to the implementation and finally the evaluation stage.   Our interpretation plans allow you to vividly tell the stories of your communities.  We specialize in strategic communications, marketing, fundraising and interpretive plans.

Evaluation is key

We believe that evidence based decision-making is the cornerstone of successful organizations. Our boutique evaluations are specially designed to give you the solid results that make this possible. We believe a focus on qualitative data is the most effective way to provide analysis and recommendations that are most useful to you. Through our intimate, hands on approach the consultant doing the data analysis and recommendations is the same person conducting the in-depth interviews and leading the focus groups. We offer a complete range of evaluative services including the creation of evaluation frameworks, and both formative and summative evaluations.

This includes assessing communications to ensure your marketing materials, exhibits, special programs and projects consistently convey the messages you want your audience to receive.
