How is a persuasive speech built?

This Persuasive Speech Outline shows how you can use the successful I B C structure (Introduction .. Body .. Conclusion) to assist YOU in the preparation of your speech and to provide a guiding map for the AUDIENCE so they do not get lost.

The result ... a powerful device to persuade.


Tells your audience what you are going to tell them and establishes the foundation for your speech. A good Introduction 'draws the map' for the journey. For a Persuasive Speech, an Introduction consists of ...

    1. Attention-Getter: A statement, visual or sound (or combination) that startles, gains attention and makes your audience sit up.
    2. Bond : Link-to Audience: Identify a personal connection in the audiences’ life, eg their use of the ‘device’ or system, or there emotional
    experience (grief and sorrow, happiness).
    3. "Credentials" of Speaker (Credibility): Demonstrate how you are an ‘expert’ through your own use, experience or study.
    4. Destination / Objective Sentence: State clearly why you are speaking at this moment. State your Goal, Thesis 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 today"
    5. Explain your Map to your Destination : Speech Preview: Briefly outline what you will cover in your persuasive speech.
    "This is where you will ... "

    “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 ...”, “Let’s start with ...” or I prefer “Let’s consider …”

B. BODY of your Speech

The Body of your speech is where the detail is found and is best contained in THREE points (you can have more, but don't confuse your audience). For a Persuasive Speech, this is where you will ...

“Tell them”

    1. Main Point #1
    State Point 1
    State a Reason
    Give an Example
    Restate the Point

    Transition: Create a linking statement to Point 2

    2. Main Point #2
    State Point 2
    State a Reason
    Give an Example
    Restate the Point

    Transition: Create a linking statement to Point 3

    3. Main Point #3
    State Point 3
    State a Reason
    Give an Example
    Restate the Point

    Transition: Create a linking statement to the Conclusion, eg “Let’s summarise ..." or “Can we consider these main points ..."


“Tell them what you have told them”

    1. Restate thesis:

    2. Restate main points:

    3. Call-to-Action: eg “I encourage you to …”, “Let’s all contribute …” , “… sign now …”, “make a decision now to be involved …”

    4. Decision-Maker (optional):

    “Coming around is the petition …”
    “Being passed from the rear is a bag for your contribution to this noble cause, dig deep …”

This Persuasive Speech Outline is exceptionally powerful. Use it to write YOUR speech.

Where does Humor fit?

Don’t forget the place of relevant and sensitive humor in your speech.

Humor relaxes the audience, cuts through resistance, and paves the way to a receptive audience.

Humor is a significant tool to effectively persuade your audience.

Humor can be added to any part of your speech, and within the Persuasive Speech Outline above, this means any part of your I B C. Note that for the audience to know there will be a little humor, that its use in the Introduction will let your audience know the 'tone' of your speech.

Don’t leave it out – it could be the critical factor that enables the audience to consider and accept your thesis.
