Day of Gratitude

Although this blog is called A Girl’s Guide to Project Management (or simply “Girl’s Guide to Project Management”), it’s not just my success. It is possible because of the many people who help make it happen.
Although we don’t celebrate Thanksgiving here in the UK (our November holiday honors the man who didn’t blow up Parliament in 1605), that doesn’t mean that we can’t give thanks. And what better time to do it than right now?
These are the people who contributed in any way to A Girl’s Guide to Project Management for this year.

A few personal thanks to:

Joanne, thank you for your support behind the scenes

You. Without readers, writing is pointless.
I hope I didn’t forget anyone, and if so, I’m sorry. Who are you grateful for this year? We’d love to hear from you in the comments.
