Introduction to What Is an Informative speech?

In an informative speech, your goal as a speaker is to provide your audience with information about a topic they are unfamiliar with or to provide more information about a topic with which they are already familiar. This distinction is important because the key to a successful information speech is to understand how much your audience already knows about the topic in question. Information speeches must be carefully calibrated to the audience’s level of understanding.┬áThis section looks at how speakers analyze the audience and then adjust their speech content to better serve their audience.
