Informative Speech Topics

Informative Speech Topics

This is a comprehensive list of the informative speech topics for public speaking. Because of how extensive the list is, each section will take you to links that will expand with further suggestions of topics for an informative speech.

On those links, some will include additional links that will start you on your information searching process.

The list is divided into Person, Place, Time, Things, Science, Finances and Money, Entertainment, Oddities and Curiosities. Because it is growing in importance, Green is on its own. In time it may be a speech topic on its own.

Have fun with your topic. Please note: We have purposely avoided political topics for numerous reasons, including that they are so divisive and because of the polarization they cause, they best be left to those in politics.
