Overview of Informative Speech

The purpose of an informative speech is to provide information the audience does not already have. Even if the audience does have some general knowledge of your topic, an informative speech will give them new knowledge or more in-depth information on that topic. The informative speech does not advocate one idea over another, but remains nonpartisan (Werkman, 2004).
