Cindi is a speaker, author, educator and the President of Create Possibility where she works with nonprofit leaders to maximize their mission. After 18 years as a YMCA executive director, she’s seen it all! She’s missed a fundraising goal, had internal leadership struggles when staff didn’t find her accessible enough, dealt with board members not showing up and much more. And then the light bulb went on and she found the answers! She led efforts to build a new Y, managed high-performing boards of up to 45 members, led teams of over 100 employees and raised more money year over year during the recession when many organizations were struggling to stay afloat.
Her keynotes and presentations are based on her book “The Impact Triangle” - a proprietary success formula that has been referred to as the secret sauce to build a thriving social enterprise. Success starts with mindset, and Cindi challenges her audience to think about how they are thinking. She delivers provocative, content-driven, fun presentations to leaders who leave with actionable plans they can execute immediately.
