Simple Formula for Writing Persuasive Speeches
“Tells your audience what you are going to tell them”
and establishes the foundation for your speech.
A good Introductio
map’ for the journey. For a Persuasive Speech an Introduction consists of
-Getter: A statement that ga
ins the attention of the audience and
makes them believe that this issue is relevant to them. Please, do NOT use
a rhetorical question here. Instead, think of your intro like a funnel. Your
thesis (in this case, your position statement) is the narrow part and you
slowly broaden out from that to a broad statement that applies to many, in
not all, people.
Bond > Link-
to Audience: Identify a personal connection in the audiences’
life, i.e. their use of the ‘device’ or system, or their emotional experience
(grief and sorrow, happiness).
“Credentials” of Speaker (Credibility): Demonstrate how you are an
‘expert’ through your own use, experience or study.
Destination / Position Statement: State clearly why you are speaking at
this moment. State your Goal, Thes
is or what you expect as an Outcome.
State your Destination. An example may be … “This evening/today I am
here to convince you that…. is the most effective way to do business
Explain my Map to my destination > Preview of Speech: Briefly outli
what you will cover in your persuasive speech. This is where you
“Tell what you are going to tell them”.
Transition: A transition is how you move from one section or point to the
next. It is a linking idea. You could say…
“Let’s begin by…
with…” or I prefer “Let’s
B. BODY of your Speech

your audience). For a Persuasive Speech, this is where you will …
Main Point #1: State Point 1, State Reason, Give Example, Restate point
Main Point #2: State Point 2, State Reason, Give Example, Restate point
Transition: Create a linking statement to Point
