We are pleased to present the second podcast in TechStyle’s podcast series!

Our second episode features Colonel Stephen C. Hall, USAF Retired, 1967 Graduate of Georgia Tech, and the namesake of our new home, the Stephen C. Hall Writing and Communication Building, on the Georgia Tech campus.  The podcast was recorded the day before the official ribbon-cutting on March 13,  2013.

(Scroll to bottom of article for podcast player.)

Col. Hall was a lively and compelling guest, giving us the story of how he came to support our new building.  In addition to an entertaining anecdote about his first writing class at Tech, his comments testify to the importance of good communication skills in the workplace and beyond.

Stay tuned for information about upcoming guests and subjects. We look forward to featuring great ideas in and outside of the classroom.  Listeners, if you have an idea for a potential guest (at Georgia Tech or further afield), please let us know through email or comment here. Enjoy.

Here are some additional pictures from the ribbon-cutting day:
