KKA Celebrates 20th Anniversary
"It's hard to believe twenty years have flown by," said Kathleen Kaiser. "When KKA began, I had just left five years in a pressure cooker position. I'd loved it, had learned a great deal, but wanted something different. Within six months, most of my former staff had joined my new venture and we were off to the races."
Since its inception in 1993, KKA has worked with Fortune 500 companies to develop their image, promote specific products and produce events both conferences and trade shows. In 2002, Kathleen Kaiser volunteered her marketing expertise to the Ojai Shakespeare Festival to promote its summer season and youth internship program. A former teenage theater intern, she realized the lifelong benefits of including art in a child’s life. This experience steered her toward the non-profit world.
Branching out to work with other arts organizations, Kathleen discovered that these groups lacked access to critical communication with the local media and the business community at large. She fine tuned her background as a national publicist and sponsorship producer for the local markets, achieving great success for the Ojai Shakespeare Festival, Ojai Art Walk, Ventura County Writers Club, Ojai Studio Artists Annual Fall Tour, Ventura Book Festival, Ojai Wine Festival, Pacific Institute for Professional Writing, and Ventura County Humane Society.
KKA now focuses on the literary and visual arts markets, working with artists and authors on their book releases and gallery shows. Taking a clue from its work with conferences, KKA now manages regional writers' conferences presented by the Pacific Institute for Professional Writings, an educational non-profit in Santa Barbara.
