50 good topics

Good persuasive speech topics

50 speech ideas, plus “how to” examples

You want good persuasive speech topics and, fortunately I’ve got some!

Good persuasive speech topics button

My list of 50 is below.

However whether they are good for you and your audience is something to seriously think about before making your final decision.

To get the most out of the page do check the guidelines about what makes a good topic choice, and the “how to” examples, as well as the list itself. The best way to use that is as a guide to get your own creative juices working.

On this page

  • 50 good persuasive speech topics
  • Using the list
  • What makes a good persuasive speech topic?
  • How to ‘angle’ or position a topic to fit your audience and speech purpose 2 examples using the same topic starter.
  • Links to more persuasive speech resources – additional topics, Monroe’s Motivated Sequence explained with a blank downloadable outline and a speech example

What makes a good persuasive speech topic?

Retro button saying

A persuasive speech topic is good if it:

  • fits its audience – Are they interested in it? Does it benefit them in anyway? Is it of value? Can you make it appealing? If it’s an old topic, (one that has done a million times before), can you make it fresh and interesting?
  • is a fit with you
    – You already know something about it, or you’re really interested in
    finding out more, and you know what want you to achieve through giving
    the speech.
  • can be researched and prepared within the time frame you need the speech for
  • fits the criteria and purpose of your speech – set by yourself, your teacher, club, the organization who hired you …

Using the list

Treat each idea as a starting point – a hook to give your brain something to latch on to.

As
you scan the list look for the speech topics triggering more than a
flicker of interest. Stop and consider those more carefully. Examine
them from as many angles as you can. Apply imagination – shake, rattle
and roll the idea around to
see whether it fits your needs.

Any topic can be handled multiple ways.

Return to Top

Same topic – different treatment

Here are two examples to show you how the same topic can be adapted for different audiences. The topic is Voice Matters.

“Voice Matters” Example 1

Vertical line of happy cartoon children

The Intended Audience: teachers

Speaker Credibility: many years of teaching English and drama, plus public speaking experience

Speech Angle:
to persuade the listeners (teachers) that how their voices sound in their student’s
ears influences how they are responded to, how their students behave and ultimately how they learn.

Specific Speech Purpose: to have them sign up for a voice workshop

Main ideas:

  • Voice image – how we are perceived by others is influenced by voice quality. This in turn impacts on how we are responded to.  (Do check the link. It is all true.)
  • What
    is a good quality voice? What personality or character traits are
    attributed to a person who has a good voice? Use sound clips to
    demonstrate. Ask for suggestions from the floor. How could that affect
    students?
  • What is a poor quality voice? What do people assume about the speaker with that type of voice? How could that affect students?
  • How do you know what you sound like to others? Use prepared sound clip of self to demonstrate.
  • Can
    voice quality or voice image be changed? Why would you do/not do that?
    Provide researched examples of before and after work on voice.
  • Consequences
    of working/not working on voice image – Give results – better classroom
    atmosphere, more on-target behavior, less time off with voice strain
  • How to work on voice image – outline of action and time line involved
  • Sign up for workshop and ongoing public speaking course

“Voice Matters” Example 2

Someone else might come along looking for a good persuasive speech topic and pick “Voice Matters” too. This time the treatment goes like this:

Male call center worker on phone.

“Voice Matters” when calling about a job

Audience: job seekers

Speaker Credibility: senior recruitment specialist for a major firm in town

Speech Angle: to persuade listeners that their telephone voice is their initial calling card to getting an interview

Specific Speech Purpose: to have the seekers sign up for course on telephone skills to get the appointment they need

Main Ideas:
As illustrated in the first example above because the core material is the same or similar
but the examples used to carry the persuasive argument and benefits will
be relevant to the audience.

    100 Good Persuasive Speech Topics

    Written by PSTI

    It’s amazing how even when the same books are read again and again, we never find them boring. Each time is like the first time – the same excitement and interest. But speeches are different and people look for innovation and creativity.

    Persuasive speech argues or puts across a point to the audience. It is the art of expressing an opinion clearly and logically.

    While presentation is very important when persuading, the magic of a persuasive speech is best experienced only when the topic elicits an interest and appeals to the heart of every member in the audience. And, that is what finally matters.

    This is where the topic for the persuasive speech becomes important. We have heard too many speeches that talk about smoking and drinking. Here is a list of some out-of-the-box persuasive speech topics that will help you keep your audience alert and attentive.

    List of 100 Persuasive Speech Topics

      Some of the topics are questionable. Outsourcing, for example. It may benefit us, but is it good that rich consumers benefit from this and secondary employment sector workers in Less Developed Countries struggle to put bread on the table?

      Not only that, but the teaching of religious education in schools is wrong. Pupils should believe what they want to believe, rather than be force – fed religious crap from a young age.

          Exactly what I was thinking! The user “????” is showing how each topic is a valid persuasive point, yet he is saying that they aren’t good. Guess someone hasn’t been paying much attention in class to know what a persuasive speech is.

        not true, and Jocob has a good point. There’s a reason why almost every single economist supports outsourcing to almost a %100, because it benefits the entire country as a whole way more then it would if it was not allowed to happen. They are sending away many manufacturing jobs that people would not want to do in the first place. Many people who loose jobs due to outsourcing end up finding a new job that is even better.

        I hope you know that evolution is a belief too. Kids are being told that evolution is the way- when they are at a young age- which is making them be forced to believe that.

      I enjoyed these topics, very much. And to all the “comment trolls” :
      I’m pretty sure that most of these people that you are referring to, do go to school. Just because they choose no to spell does not mean they cannot. Oh, and those saying these were not good topics, choose your words carefully. The person (or people) who wrote this have feelings. They are human beings, too. Respect that.

      I don’t really think that these options are very good to write about. I mean, really? Americans given a 3rd weekend day? No. If America has the rights to have another weekend day, then so should every other country and island. Also, legalizing m*******a? For medical reasons, then yes, there is an excuse, but for everyday smoking reasons, absolutely not. I am only a child, and I can think of better topics like, poverty, homeless, starvation, racism and many others.
