INTRODUCTION OF SPEECH

A. Attention Grabber: Rhetorical question, statistic, example, story, etc. to grab audiences’ attention and most importantly, their interest. Always start speech with your hook; state your name after hook only if necessary.

B. Establish Credibility: Mention your experience with your topic and/or that you have researched the topic extensively.

C. Reason Audience Will Be Interested: Provide justification for your speech. Explain why the audience should listen to/care about this topic. Emphasize that this is a problem that affects everyone in the audience in one way or another.

D. Thesis Statement: Connect your hook to your thesis statement: “In this speech, I will ___.” A thesis statement in a Persuasive Speech is the all-encompassing argument of your speech. This should make it clear to the audience what your topic is and what you’re arguing for.

E. Forecast Main Points: Forecast clearly your 3 main points that will become the body of the speech with the use of signposts (First,…Second,…Finally,…etc.).

(Transition): Provide an indication that you are moving into your first main point.

CONCLUSION OF SPEECH

I. Restate Thesis: Clearly restate your thesis from the introduction. The thesis statement is the all-encompassing argument you put forward in your speech.

J. Concise Recap of Main Points: Recap your speech in a concise, but creative format. Use signposts (First,…Second,…Third,…)

K. Call to Action: This is where you clearly tell the audience a role they can play after listening to your speech. This gives audience members concrete tasks to tackle, and these tasks are ones that must be completed in order to bring your ideas to fruition. Make the call to action clear, direct, and tangible for your audience.

L. Clincher: Your goal is to end with something memorable rather than a throwaway line. This should connect back to your attention grabber and be a powerful, unique, meaningful statement that will stick with your audience and give closure to your presentation. Avoid trivial statements such as “I hope you learned today…” as well as avoiding anything that is too repetitive from what was said in the body of the speech.

M. Thank You.
