I need a speech topic that will inform my audience?

Needless to say anything controversial usually will catch your audience. It will either have the people agreeing with your topic or have them offended, to the point where they want to tell you you're wrong, either way you will have their attention. I recommend that you bring up the Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown. Everyone seems to have an opinion about this book, good or bad. You could give a speech on how one fiction book has shook the Catholic Church, or how Dan Brown deceives people by intertwining fiction and fact. Anyway you look at it, if your speech has to do with the Da Vinci Code, and how you don't believe in it, or how you do believe in it, it will keep your audience's attention. How informed your audience will be depends on how well you present your speech.

When writing a speech it is important to take into account who the audience is, what the format will be, and what the general subject is about.
Pattern your speech with language and knowledge base directed at the age group represented. For example, you would not want to discuss evolutionary theory to third graders.
The format could be either straight forward speech (monologue) or it could be a speech which prompts the audience to engage as well.
And, what is the general subject area. It is important to set up a speech or presentation which is relevant to the audience. For exmaple, talking gay rights to an audience of english majors may not be the best choice.
In general, choose a topic you feel interest in which is relevant to the audience and subject area

Could you provide some more detail. The best advice is to find a topic that is relevant to the audience and something that isn't';t conversion, such as Abortion and Homosexuality, as they quickly become preservative and hard to inform in a short time. How to speech's are always a good topic, or simple interesting topics to you or the general audiance. Be creative.

Try and stay away from topics that are really overdone, such as views on the death penelty or abortion. When I was in school teachers said they were good topics, but were so overdone and would like different topics. Some of the other ones that people would use were legalization of marijuana or witchcraft as a religion. I would say that witchcraft would be most interesting since most people think they know what it is about, but the really don't (unless you actually follow wiccan or other magical religions). The group that talked about that topic helped me learn a lot. Another is bio engineering--I wrote a paper about that for an english class in college and it was quite interesting. Or you could write about animal cognition--like with dolphins, and how they are similar to people with their thinking and reasoning skills. Good luck!

I gave a speech at college just a few years ago about the local State Hospital. It is a mental hospital. I could you give you more details about what I actually talked about if you need details, but I remember starting off asking the audience what they thought of when they hear that someone "went nuts" or is a mental case. I borrowed a straight jacket from the hospital, danced around with a rubber chicken and had the time of my life performing this speech. Good luck and let me know if you need anything else.Source(s): Logansport State Hospital, Logansport, Indiana

You need a speech topic that will inform your audience about what? What are they interested in? Who are they? What age group are they?
You could talk about the effect of solar flares on the earth's climate, but that wouldn't be of much interest to primary kids. Give us a few more details and we'll try to help.

It depends on how old your audience is. You need a topic that they will find intruiging as well as informative. If they don't find it interesting than they're not going to listen. Sorry I don't have any real answers for you, but that's something to think about.
