This blog might be called A Girl’s Guide to Project Management, but the success of it isn’t just down to me. There are a lot of people who contribute to making it happen.
We don’t celebrate Thanksgiving in the UK (our November holiday celebrates the chap who didn’t manage to blow up Parliament in 1605) but that doesn’t mean we can’t give thanks. And when better to do it than now?
