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.

But who am I, anyway? I am a Canadian, living "down under" in New Zealand with my family, and loving every bit of it.

I am also a Project Manager who has worked in the Telecom, Student Information Systems and Local Government and Health sectors since graduating from Simon Fraser University (BC, Canada) in 1989. My international experience includes projects in New Zealand, Taiwan, Hong Kong, the US and Canada.

I enjoy speaking and training, and have presented at several PMI events and conferences.

My books include Gazza's Guide to Practical Project Management (college and adult), and the Project Kids Adventures book series, for children ages 9-12.

My PM blog is Gazza’s Corner, and don't forget the Podcast! (also available on iTunes)

I look forward to sharing and learning with you!
