Have you ever struggled with going from idea to scale relatively fast? Dean Nelson, founder and chairman of Infrastructure Masons, is a master of scale and has over the years built a tremendous community with thousands of movers and shakers who together represent over $150 billion in infrastructure projects spanning 130 countries.

Owner of a seasoned technology executive career spanning 31 years of building and operating global digital infrastructure portfolios, he also serves as CEO of Virtual Power Systems, he is the founder and CEO of Dean Nelson Incorporated, a co-founder of the Just Let me Learn foundation, as well as a co-host to his podcast, The Next Wave.

Throughout his conversation with the GBM podcast, Dean shares past experiences, reveals what is non-negotiable in business, and what drives him to keep going when it gets tough. Dean also shares his thoughts on the role of digital infrastructure and the real impact it has on everyone’s lives and on the planet.

On Infrastructure Masons, he takes GBM behind the scenes, from when the idea of uniting the builders of the digital age first came up to deciding on the name and what the organisation is doing from sustainability to investing in the leaders of tomorrow.

Beyond iMasons, Dean talks about his other projects today, and hints at what his next big adventure will be, which he reveals will launch in the autumn of 2022.
