Marianne Hughes

This is an extraordinary generation of leaders who have served the social change sector with their whole hearts and they realize that they are entering into a major life transition that is far more demanding than a change of jobs or careers and they are seeking to go through this passage with as much grace and courage as is required.

Marianne Hughes left her position as the founding Executive Director of the Interaction Institute for Social Change (IISC) in 2012, and now works independently as a Consultant, Coach, Designer, and Facilitator.

Marianne combines 20 years of experience as an executive director with expertise in the design and facilitation of systems change, network building, leadership development, public policy advocacy and community organizing with her devotion to social justice, and deep faith in the human capacity for goodness to further the work of global transformation.

Nancy Jackson

I get so much joy as a co-faculty of "What’s Next?" because of the amazing, wise, and thoroughly enjoyable executives who attend and in watching each one transform in his or her recognition of how to leave their beloved organizations courageously. Honestly, the four days are among my most pleasurable times of the year.

Nancy Jackson, MSW, is principal consultant and owner of Gammy Bird Consulting. She is a certified facilitator, bringing 25 years of executive-level nonprofit and government experience to her practice. For 18 years she co-directed New England Network for Child, Youth and Family Services, a nonprofit intermediary organization that works collaboratively with over 100 child- and youth-service organizations in New England to inspire innovation and advance best practices in work with children and adolescents.

She is a certified facilitator and she leads groups in planning and transition processes, and has served as a consultant for TSNE since 2004 in its executive transitions, sustainability training, and coaching programs.
