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.
Cynthia’s the real deal. We hired her as a respected consultant and unexpectedly gained a trusted teammate as well. She’s wicked smart yet grounded in practical application; high energy with a can-do/will-do spirit; analytical, networked, engaging, inspiring, and creative. She sees things others don’t and will tell you things others won’t. She thinks strategically at a high level, translates for real-world action, and coaches for successful impact.
Cynthia Gibson exemplifies the name of her firm: Cynthesis Consulting. She’s a true utility player, able to provide research and analyses on a wide range of topics from a diverse set of sources and distill it all in extremely readable formats free of jargon for busy people to consider. The final product provides a number of scenarios to debate and gives the reader a plan of action to follow. She is also a thoughtful listener and an excellent writer. I would highly recommend her for any project, large or small.
