About KCS

Firmly established in 2000.

Kennedy Consulting Services creates marketing, communications, and technology programs that deliver solid results. Our mission is to draw attention to what’s most important – your organization, your mission, and your services.

We start with a deep understanding of your values and objectives and then create marketing strategies that deliver collateral materials and web properties grounded in research and analysis. What works for another organization may not work for yours, so we focus on your business reality and market sector.

History

Kennedy Consulting Services bubbled up in the mid-1990s as a side hustle and a way for the founder, Helen Kennedy, to explore the Internet and develop strategies for employing marketing initiatives in the new medium. Knowledge gained during this time period was often used to innovate in a corporate environment, where tried-and-true methods clashed with the technical revolution.

KCS has been operating as an independent professional services firm since 2001. For many years, the company was based in Palo Alto, CA, as many of its clients are located in nearby Silicon Valley and San Francisco. The company is now 100% virtual, which provides tremendous accessibility for clients and allows KCS to work with a talented team and better serve international clients.

We bring experienced professionals to your project, individually selected to deliver the results you expect and require. KCS has a core team of professionals in the fields of marketing, PR, communications, design, and technology. This team has worked together extensively, and all of them share the same dedication to customer satisfaction.

Our extended network of project consultants includes video production, social media experts, copywriters, illustrators, PR professionals, interactive designers, architects, event planners, project leaders, marketing managers, and web developers.

About the Founder

Helen Kennedy is the CEO of Kennedy Consulting Services. With more than 20 years of marketing experience, she takes a strategic approach with client engagements and delivers excellent results. Kennedy has worked with numerous companies in a variety of sectors, including technology, life sciences, nonprofit, education, consumer, and professional services.

As the managing consultant for all KCS clients, Kennedy is known for her leadership and strong business relationships. Client relationships tend to be long-lived and most new business comes from word-of-mouth referrals. Her wide-ranging skills run from website development, to content production, to design direction. She’s a strategic thinker, and has revamped and developed business programs that deliver impressive results.

Prior to founding Kennedy Consulting Services in 2001, she served extensively as Director of International Web Development for Adecco SA, the staffing industry leader. Starting from her position in strategic planning, she became a web pioneer and built one of the first global intranets used in business, by training collaborators around the world to develop conforming websites. Helen Kennedy also served as Director of Web Development for the supply chain startup GNX.

Kennedy’s symbiotic working relationship with Nimbus Design began at Adecco and continues to this day, as the two firms often collaborate on projects. She previously worked for Stanford University Hospital and Medical Center, in pharmacy technology and patient relations.

Kennedy holds a B.S. in Business Administration.
