Want to see a free persuasive speech example?

So, you've read about finding your own persuasive speech topic, and you want to see an example of an entire persuasive speech? I'm happy to let you see one of mine for free... even though it's part of my new book, even though you might give it yourself without giving me credit, go ahead!

Give me credit if you can... but I hope it's a great example for you so you can learn to write your own speech, and that you might like the content and think about buying my book.

By the way, I also offer a Free Informative Speech

(Actually - remember the following insight in case you ever write a book - turning part of my book into a speech made that section better! When you write your persuasive speech, you can do a typed version, edit that on the computer, then read it out loud, then change the parts that don't sound natural. I ended up using the speech incarnation of this instead of the pre-speech version in my book.)

Instead of including the whole free persuasive speech on this page, I'll just link to word documents. I wrote this to fulfill speech #5 in Toastmaster International's Professional Speaker manual. I did that at my public speaking club, Toastmasters of La Jolla.

  1. Original AWritten Piece - lost in space... unfortunately, I didn't save a copy of it, and what I did for the speech is so different... oh well.
  2. "Achieve Your Health Goals" - The entire free persuasive speech - It's in Word document form. You may want to right-click it and save as instead of viewing it in a browser window. Practice the speech from this whole version first.
  3. "Achieve Your Health Goals" - Outline - Practice the speech from this version, trying to remember the parts not on the outline - use this outline when you actually give the speech
  4. The text and outline are free, but if you want to hear audio of my speech in action (which will help you better absorb the persuasive aspect), I have to charge $5 for the download bandwidth. You can buy the mp3 download of this persuasive speech with the following 'Buy Now' button. :-)

Get the Audio of the speech for just 5 bucks.
