And so the end of 2009 is nigh...

There's just over a week until Christmas to go and the end of 2009 is nigh. December is being its usual crazy self and acting like a strange combination of winding down to the break and frantic mania trying to get everything crossed off the to-do list before the end of year. I imagine it's this strange juxtaposition for many businesses and it is certainly the case for a PR agency like Kinetics. You end up juggle the looming 'Christmas closedown/slowdown' deadlines of all the major publications against client's expectations of getting news out the door and achieving targets for the year. Throw in the mix Christmas parties, 2010 strategic plans, contract renewals, staggered annual leave calendars (both clients' and our own), family interruptions (there's always some this time of year), early invoicing and reporting requirements and you've got a recipe for organised chaos. This year has been no exception. For example at the moment I'm sitting in the office all alone as one colleague is on personal leave, one finding lunch, one on a last minute client Christmas present mission, the other hand delivering presents, one picking up relatives from the airport, one at the last board meeting for the year and some others at a final client meeting. Tis the season eh!

In any case, I thought I'd take this opportunity to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! We especially want to thank our clients for their support this year and looks forward to an even better 2010 ahead working together! And to the team, I want to thank you all for your hard work and effort in what has definitely been at times a trying year, you're brilliant and deserve a break this Christmas. Travel safe and have a happy time!

NB: The office will be closed from 1pm on Thursday 24th December to Monday 4th January but if you need us call the office number and it will divert to Kenny's mobile.
