The Art of Persuasion with Eloise Hall

Episode Summary

Literacy experts Sharon and Phil Callen talk about how to harness the power of persuasive writing with entrepreneur Eloise Hall.

Episode Notes

When it comes to the art of persuasion in writing we tend to focus on structure, but the power is in the purpose.  

As a teacher, it's about shifting focus from ‘I must teach persuasive writing’ to open the doors on how I can be effective at persuading others through writing, discussions and presentations.

We want to motivate students to write because they care, to find a strong voice, to write with meaning, power and voice.

And we can learn a lot from our guest, Eloise Hall. Eloise is a young entrepreneur and co-founder of Taboo, who has been raising her voice to address a real issue - menstrual poverty. Taboo produces 100% cotton pads and tampons, with 100% of net profits dedicated to empowering women with access to safe sanitary products and menstrual health knowledge.

Eloise talks about finding meaning and motivation, broadening beyond writing to persuasive communication, unlocking passion and much more.

Find out more about Taboo.
