Our vision is founded on being a part of a something bigger than ourselves.




Synergy Resources Group is committed to achieving the results or clients expect.  We’ve shared some of our success stories from working with clients many different industries—along with client feedback on their experience with us.   


Through collaborating with our clients, we've accomplished a lot together:

  • We developed employee retention programs for several service businesses—resulting in clear measurable successes, with one company experiencing 50% less turnover in just two years.

  • We created and implemented a marketing and fundraising plan for a nonprofit trade organization—growing revenue by 30% each year.

  • We developed a financial crisis response plan for a business with high debt, declining sales, and a low-performing sales team—resulting in avoidance of bankruptcy, negotiations with creditors for payment plans, and a reorganization plan to increase future performance.

And from those results, we've heard from satisfied clients:

  • "Synergy Resources Group performed a complete analysis of our business from top to bottom. The plan they helped us put together has reduced debt we incurred to keep the business going during the 'great recession.' They also provided the professional support we needed to move forward."

  • "With Debra and Synergy's patience and supportive leadership, I have been able to narrow down a business plan that is keeping me moving forward with thoughtful and assertive actions needed during my transition into consulting services. I had experienced being 'stuck and frozen' and the services they've provided has gently and powerfully encouraged me to move on and follow the solid plans we've developed for the next three years."
