Putting it Together
This sample persuasive speech outline is not the typical way of presenting. It is based on the way the mind works. It has to do with how our minds process information.
The introduction needs to be appropriate to the length of the speech. Since people do not remember the first things said, it is important that a powerful introduction capture their attention. It is important to be focused on the audience and not on your notes.
The body of the persuasive speech, solutions trump features every time. Features could be eliminated unless they can be framed as solutions.
The Conclusion will have the normal summation. There will be an additional one to three calls to action. One or up to three can be used. They will be woven into the review. They will be based on logic, desire and fear.
Speak well and prosper.
