About the Principal Partner

Sharon Campbell is the founder and president of SYNERGY Development and Training Group, a North Carolina-based strategic development company that bridges the gap between large and small community programs with public, private, government, for-profit and non-profit organizations, associations and corporations.

A highly experienced strategist, Sharon manages programs that utilize diverse planning, proposal development, grant research and tasking in areas of community economic development, professional training, team building and coordination, and market research and evaluation. Her ability to successfully access resources, programs and personnel in both the public and private sectors (including federal, state and local agencies) is widely recognized.

Sharon is a skilled facilitator leading a series of workshops that tackle important issues, such as community engagement, community planning, business development, housing education, flood zone education, leadership development, strategic planning, project management, and others. She can help your organization discover its strategic value and uncover its niche to ensure a competitive advantage.

As a speaker and presenter at conferences, seminars, or other collaborative events, participants praise her presentations for combining positive, interactive processes with powerful insights and inspiration.  Participants are able to develop practical skills that can be implemented quickly and easily.


Sharon is a certified trainer for “The Climate Project” - an initiative created by former Vice President Al Gore to educate the public about the harmful effects of climate change on the environment and to work toward sustainable solutions.


Sharon has developed, managed and negotiated grants totaling more than $3 million for community need-based economic projects with municipalities and public agencies to create jobs, support health-related programs, as well as conduct transportation assessments, entrepreneurial workshops and training seminars.
