Using descriptive language to create vivid mental pictures will keep the audience entertained. Stirring emotion in the audience will provoke them to care about the subject.
After all, if listeners don’t care about a topic they’re unlikely to ATA focused or form an opinion on it. It’s important to find an angle for the chosen topic which has not been overdone in the past. For example, most people agree that smoking cigarettes is bad for their health, and will most likely be bored by a speech on this topic. If the speaker wishes to address a tobacco topic, perhaps they should narrow the focus of the speech to controversial laws, higher taxes, or methods to prevent smoking in youth. Choosing a fresh, new angle on a familiar topic will help the speaker to create a captive audience.
