MEET OUR FOUNDER

Hi, I'm Cyndee. A former educator and trainer, I have worked as a marketing and advertising professional for over 20 years. A graduate of Georgia State University, I hold numerous awards and certifications including as an examiner in Baldrige Criteria for Performance Excellence. I've also been responsible for the execution of millions of dollars of complex media buys, PR for an international television show, and media events spanning the globe.

I've spent my career working with entrepreneurial leaders and one of the most common challenges of their role is finding reliable sources for insights into solid marketing strategy. That's why I created the Marketing Idea Exchange --a community of like-minded business owners who have access to the latest best practices in marketing all in a professionally-moderated environment that connects them to a powerful referral network of peers.

I am the Founder of Synaptic, one of the fastest growing advertising firms in Metro Detroit. We actively manage accounts ranging from mid-cap international ecommerce business to small retail boutiques. Our experience and expertise is sharpened each and every day, benefitting MIX members as well as our growing client base.

My mission is to help small business owners adopt process-centered approaches to three key areas of their business: people, systems, and marketing.

WHAT SETS MARKETING IDEA EXCHANGE APART?
