Persuasion is a communication process involving both verbal and nonverbal messages that attempts to reinforce or change the listeners’ attitudes, beliefs, values, or behaviors.
The Goal of Persuasive Speaking
The ultimate goal of all persuasion is action; that is, successful persuasion reinforces existing behavior, changes existing behavior, or leads to new behavior. When a speaker’s main goal is to achieve action, he or she will also seek one of four sub-goals: adoption, discontinuance, deterrence, or continuance of a particular behavior.

An outline is a blueprint for your presentation.It highlights the key logical elements, highlights the key structural elements, e.g. introduction, body, conclusion, stories, high-level concepts, links these elements together in a sequence, perhaps allocating very rough timings, and It can also map out the transitions between elements, although this may be deferred to a later stage of preparation.
