Author Talk – Paul Hill

August 17, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

SEAD Gallery and Bookshop will be hosting Paul Hill, former NASA Director of Mission Operations, at our bimonthly Author Talk Series!

Paul Sean Hill worked for 25 years in NASA’s notable Mission Control Department. Paul served as Director of Mission Operations for seven years, continuously displaying effective leadership and undeniable passion. During his time at NASA, Mr. Hill was recognized for revolutionizing the leadership culture of the organization and dramatically reducing costs, while still conducting space missions. He now speaks to clients such as Shell, Texas A&M University, Google, J.P. Morgan Chase, and many others explaining how to apply the core values implemented at NASA, to corporate boardrooms in a variety of fields.

Mr. Hill will be telling stories about his time working for NASA and sharing some of the lessons he discusses in his book, Leadership from the Mission Control Room to the Boardroom. Hill’s book outlines the secret to Mission Control’s renowned success, a deliberate morality that guides every judgement and decision. He emphasizes the importance of managers staying connected to this morality and earning the trust of their employees.

Paul will be signing copies of his book and engaging with everyone who joins us during our event!
