I appreciate the words of wisdom Jason shared in class about persevering and being open to all kinds of writing as a technical writer. Those words were valuable when I began my technical writing role as part of a sales team. It involves a lot of proposal writing, which walks a nice line between informative and persuasive writing. I’m using my strengths, but expanding the scope of my writing skills as well.

Jason is able to bridge the worlds of IT and healthcare, crafting messaging about clinical information systems that is clear and easy-to-understand for a range of care providers, from administrators to front-line staff. During his time with the BC Renal Agency, he developed a range of communication tools and streamlined workflow processes.

Jason Hall wowed the audience with a performance that was both lyrical and haunting. Performing three works on the Hungarian Tárogató (his instrument of choice) he conveyed the beauty and richness of that country’s folk tradition. It was a treat for the listeners. Perhaps the most thrilling work was a solo nationalistic composition that was cheeky and playful while being dignified at the same time. With a grace note it was suddenly over.

Jason introduced a new way of doing our installation guides, many examples of which I continue to use in the way we do things today.

Thank you so much for the wonderful article. I thought it was beautifully written and I absolutely loved it! It was so nice chatting with you last week. Thanks also for making the interview such a pleasant experience.
I am looking forward to reading more of your articles in future and hope to see you at a concert sometime next season.

Excellent review of Ethos Collective’s concert last week by the always-insightful Jason Hall in The Vancouver Observer.

Jason is an incredibly thoughtful and detail-oriented writer and communicator. I’ve worked with him for a few years and have found that not only is his work impressive but he’s a great person to have on a team. His strengths are not just in writing but in public speaking as well. At a recent editorial meeting, he gave a really inspiring speech about writing and putting soul into a story. It was very powerful and moving.

Spot-on analysis of my piece (last Friday’s Colin MacDonald Pocket Orchestra concert) in this review!

I personally enjoyed today’s blog post, Jason. Makes it so much fun to promote! Well done. And I loved learning about the background of a Webtech Wireless employee. You just never know what people do when they aren’t at work! 🙂 I appreciate the personal touches you’ve been using on the blog recently.
