Writing a persuasive speech
Unlike other forms of speeches, a persuasive speech aims to convince your audience to support a cause that you believe in. When writing a persuasive speech, you have to start with an introduction that captures the attention of your audience, provides a reason for your audience to listen, establishes your credibility to give such a speech, and previews the main points you are going to give in your speech.
In the body of your persuasive speech, you start by highlighting the problem that the speech is intended to address. You then indicate the reasons why the problem affects your audience and some of the solutions that can help to alleviate the problem. Subsequently, you demonstrate how the suggested solution will help to alleviate the problem. In the conclusion of your persuasive speech, you preview your main points, make a call to action, and offer a closing statement that thanks your audience for listening to you.
