I am looking for someone to help me to organize my speech by getting rid (and narrowing down) of repetitious information and un-needed information. I would like to have a persuasive speech which is easy to follow and is concise enough. Please remember it's a persuasive speech which should be presented in 6 minutes. Please help me! I attached my preparation speech outline. 

PREPARATION OUTLINE Topic: The Influence of Introverts over Extroverts General Purpose: To persuade Specific Purpose: To persuade my audience that introverts can be more influential than extroverts. Central Idea: Unlike extroverts, introverts have the ability to think and speak deliberately and selectively and allow themselves to suspend their ego. Influential Introverts versus Influential Extroverts Introduction I. (It’s rare that you see the words “introvert” and “influence” in the same sentence. After all, the common perception is that extroverts make great public speakers and are excellent influential leaders -- two things CEOs and organizational leaders must be -- and that introverts are not. In fact…) Did you all know that 75% of our class is introverts? According to the questionnaire, 80% of the class doesn’t understand the definition of an introvert nor extrovert. It became obvious to me that most of the class thinks that introverts are just shy and quiet people while extroverts are just loud mouths. II. We will discuss how introverts can be more influential than extroverts. a. I am an introvert as I stated before I’m not the only one here who is! We are stuck with the stereotype of believing that extroverts are more influential and better suited to be influential leaders as discovered from the questionnaire. Yet, the majority of the population praises the famous introvert, Bill Gates, for the technological advances in the 21 st century. We also talk of Gandhi as well as a prime leader who was influential enough to make a change for his people. b. One of my majors is psychology. For the past two years, I have been a research assistant in a laboratory, which focuses on social psychology specifically different attitudes and personality traits including introversion and extroversion. III. Today, we will focus on how unlike extroverts, introverts have the ability to think and speak deliberately and selectively and allow themselves to suspend their ego. Body I. First, we will discuss how unlike extroverts, introverts have the ability to speak and think tactically and selectively. A. Introverts are known for being more meticulous with their words than extroverts. Introverts take a moment and think before they speak. Listening helps introverts establish rapport and mutual understanding. Slow down, get face-to-face, observe body language, ask questions and serve as a sounding board for others. Finding the right words for the right moment is 80% of influential communication.

1. Sub-sub point [ idea development, explanations, stories, evidence ] Learning by listening, not talking, is a trait that introverts consistently demonstrate. They also use their calm, quiet demeanors to be heard amid all the organizational noise and chatter. In fact, the most powerful person in the room is often the most quiet. So, an introvert’s more contemplative approach to communication can serve them well in their persuasive conversations. a. Strategic thinkers are often introverts. They are known for looking at the metaphorical chessboard and thinking 5 moves ahead. Again, an introvert’s quiet contemplation is a competitive advantage. 2. Sub-sub point While an extrovert might go with the flow in a conversation, an introvert is skilled at staying focused on a target. Influence is, at its core, goal setting in communication. An introvert’s strategic mind means they are likely to hit their conversational target. a. Introverts excel at the serious, purpose-driven, one-on-one interactions vital for winning people over. This can spark learning, provide encouragement to others, work through conflict and more. b. Harvard Business School professor Francesca Gino’s research discovered that introverts have the ability to adapt their style of speaking depending on the type of group they’re leading. Rather than the flashy chitchat that defines social gatherings, introverts listen intently to what others say and internalize it before they speak. They’re not thinking about what to say while the other person is still talking, but rather listening so they can learn what to say. Their study shows that introverted executives with proactive groups can be extremely successful because introverted leaders carefully listen to what their teams have to say. B.0 Typically, introverted leaders, recognizing their potential shortcomings in this area, spend ample time before any speech carefully preparing their remarks, editing them down to their pure essence. And while they may feel underprepared even when over-prepared once on stage, their attention to detail often pays off. a. Take the Gettysburg Address – written and delivered by introvert Abraham Lincoln, it has survived where countless off-the-cuff statements of others have perished from this earth. In leadership terms, this choosiness can prove beneficial. Where a more extraverted leader might call for one unproductive meeting after another simply because face-time plays to their preferences, an introverted leader, seeking to limit time spent with idle chit-chat, may bring a more focused, task-oriented approach to meetings, reducing both their number and their duration. 1. The selectiveness of the way introverts speak and think shows how introverts take a circumspect approach to chance while extroverts are more prone to risk-taking.
