So, at the time of giving a persuasive speech, there are a few pointers you should remember.
Even though you’re arguing and/or persuading audience to agree with your side, don’t be negative while delivering the speech. Along with facts, your opinions on the subject is also an integral part of your argument. Avoid using vague terminologies or use the bandwagon persuasion technique. Give real-life examples of incidents that can be related to the topic at hand. Have a thesis statement ready along with a hook for the audience. Don’t think that just because you’re favoring one side of an argument, your audience will unanimously agree with you.
Once you have considered these points, you can easily find topics that will catch your interest. Not everyone is comfortable and confident about giving a speech in front of a crowd, regardless of its size.
