Cynthesis Consulting offers strategic planning, communications, evaluation, and program development services for a wide range of nonprofit and philanthropic organizations in the U.S. and internationally. With more than 25 years of experience in the social sector — as consultant, senior staff person, connector, and thought leader — Principal Cynthia Gibson uses a highly personalized, collaborative, and results-focused approach that values straight talk, substance, and efficiency over jargon, complicated processes, and shiny objects.
I had the pleasure and privilege of having Cynthia Gibson as my mentor as I transitioned into my first executive director position. Her candor, experience and passion helped make a personally and professionally difficult transition manageable, and her guidance helped set me up for success. I benefited greatly from Cynthia’s coaching and wouldn’t be where I am today without her investment in me and my organization.
Cynthia has a talent for seeing the forest and the trees, and making them visible to others. With deep intuition and broad networks, Cynthia picks up on and helps amplify emerging trends.
