Gammy Bird Consulting Facilitation, Planning, Executive Transition and Training

About Nancy Jackson, President

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.

In the mid-1990s she was trained and certified in the Technologies of Participation facilitation methodologies developed by the Institute of Cultural Affairs (ICA). Impressed by the simplicity and power of these methods, she launched Gammy Bird Consulting to facilitate planning processes, staff retreats and executive transitions.

Nancy is also a charter associate of Third Sector New England’s 13-member pool of Executive Transition Consultants, an active participant in the ToP Trainers Network, and an Adjunct Faculty member at area universities.

Her core beliefs, which guide her work, are:

  • Authentic conversations help individuals and organizations accomplish transformative shifts;
  • Long-lasting changes occur when those implementing or impacted by the changes are fully and genuinely engaged in what needs to happen;
  • All individuals, organizations and communities have untapped potential to be effective and creative;
  • Having fun aids in thinking creatively and strategically; and
  • No two individuals or organizations are alike. Flexible, customized assistance is what makes a difference.

Nancy Jackson lives in Dublin, New Hampshire with her husband and barnyard animals, thoroughly enjoys playing soccer and ice hockey daily, and traveling to visit her children in far flung places.
