Informative speech topics refer to those speeches that give out information before a live audience. Good informative speech topics should not only give accurate information but the topics should also seem interesting to the audience. Research is of critical importance in presenting informative speeches. If your topic is something that the audience is aware of then any wrong information will be immediately spotted and incomplete research can prove to be a disaster for your presentation. An example of a informative speech topic could be the freedom struggle of a particular country. Since the audience may be aware of major events that happened during this struggle it is important that the dates and historical events are presented with absolute accuracy. It would be embarrassing if the data and events are inaccurately presented or if complete information is not provided. While selecting topics of informative speeches it is important that you select those subjects that interest you and on which you would be able to get relevant information with ease. The topics should also seem interesting and relevant considering the preferences and interests of the audience. For this reason the age group and background of the audience should also be considered before selecting topics of informative speeches.

Some other factors that determine the success of the speech include the mood of the audience, the personality of the speaker among other things. While making the speech it is important that you sound clear and audible to the audience. You should also ensure that the speech has an impressive start because that will allow you to capture the attention of the audience. Ensure that you pause and emphasize the right points and make the speech as interesting as possible. Humor is an important element in successfully delivering speeches. Intersperse your speech with interesting statistics so as to add an element of surprise to the presentation. You can also use slides to guide your audience through your subject matter so that the presentation may not seem too boring or predictable. You can also try selecting some fun informative speech topics that are not too loaded with boring statistics and that can lighten the mood and yet provide interesting information.

If its for a speech class the content doesn't even matter, it's about how you present the speech. if you're good enough to pull of humor, do it!

Just to let you know many of these are not in fact informative, but rather persuasive speech topics.
