Gary M. Nelson, PMP (Gazza) - I am passionate about sharing knowledge and making Project Management concepts more accessible, particularly to new and aspiring Project Managers (of all ages). Said another way, I like to tell stories to help convey complex concepts in a way that helps the concepts "stick". Who says learning shouldn't be fun?

I am thrilled that my blog, podcast and books are being used to support Project Management education, and I hope you gain some useful tips, or at least some food for thought.

Feel free to share your comments and questions in the blog - after all, we learn best by sharing our experiences with others. You can also email me at gary.nelson@gazzasguides.com with comments, suggestions and questions.

But who am I,

Usually I work on something else completely different for a while, then the words begin to flow again.
The interesting thing about each of the children's books is that they all started with a fairly solid week of writing, in which half the book was written - it just flowed. Then for some reason things dried up for a while, but the second half of each book came in a similar burst.(less)

The best thing about being a writer is the freedom to create something new - new worlds, new stories.
However it also comes with a sort of responsibility to the characters - you can't just write what you want all the time. The characters 'speak' back when you try to write them doing something that would be out of character.
In some ways it is like watching your own children develop - you don't always know how it will end up, and they are full of surprises.(less)

Being a successful public speaker is more than just walking up to a crowd and talking. It’s a way of convincing others of your ideas and beliefs, letting the world know that you have something to say. But how does this translate to effective business leadership if all you do is talk? That’s what you think you’re doing, “talking”, but to everyone else, you’re doing something much more. Persuadin... Read more of this blog post »
