When it comes to persuading the audience to think in a particular direction, many people can't really grasp what this term means. However, we are not talking about debating with someone here. What we are focusing on is giving a speech where you have a group of people or audience listening to what you have to say. The term speech is often confused with the term debate. Although these very diverse areas are interrelated, they differ from one another and have separate levels of meaning and implementation.

A debate is an argument where two speakers or sides give their opinions and statements about a particular topic/subject in order to persuade one another and the audience. Whereas in a speech, there is one speaker who addresses his audience over a particular topic/subject and presents his argument. It's important to choose good persuasive speech topics to grab the attention of the audience and evoke a positive response/awareness regarding the subject. These speeches are meant to present a pro or con, depending on the speaker and the side of an argument. The speaker should choose the side which he/she is comfortable with and present it to the audience with facts, numbers, historical evidence, etc.

If the speaker has assimilated enough knowledge about the subject, he can definitely convince or alter the thinking of the listeners. So if you have a speech coming up in your class and want to talk on some interesting topics, you have come to the right place.
