Trusted Peer Mentor and Senior Advisor to Canadian Chairs, Boards and Senior Management

Badge, Interim Academy Graduate, Third Sector Company

Interim Executive Certification

Jane graduated in the fall of 2020 from the Interim Executives Academy, Third Sector Company, and is now certified as an Interim Executive. She wishes that program had been available before my Interim CEO and Executive Director roles! She and her fellow graduates are professional Interim Executives, choosing to provide short-term leadership and not seeking full-time executive roles.

She very highly recommends the Interim Executives Academy for current and prospective Interim Executives, for funders, and for consultants involved with executive transition and succession planning.

Based on her success in prior Interim Executive roles and her new training, she will be using a structured method for advising Interim and new Executive Directors for success in their new roles. She will be an advisor, sounding board and empathetic listener as she helps client leaders be transformational, intentional and methodical. There is more information here on her role as a Peer Mentor to Interim Executives. New pages will be posted shortly on her role as Peer Mentor to new Board Chairs and permanent Executive Directors.

Pro Bono

Jane already has two BIPOC pro bono clients for 2021. Neither are Indigenous and she will still consider adding a pro bono Indigenous client.
