    A verbal lowdown that provides any kind of information about a certain topic to the audience is called an informative speech. A written text that disseminates information to readers can be termed as an informative essay. Explanatory lectures, platforms that spread awareness through verbal channels, etc, are some examples of informative speech. The main aim of informative speeches is to communicate the information crisply and clearly to the audience. One must reiterate the key points throughout the speech to ensure that the audience has understood the information.

    Types of Informative Speeches

    There are four types of informative speeches: speeches about objects, speeches about processes, speeches about concepts, and speeches about events. If you verbally inform about the properties or nature of a tangible or intangible object, it is termed as an informative speech about objects. For example: A salesman explaining the features of a car is an informative speech about an object. If one disseminates information about how a process works by talking about it, it is an informative speech about process. For example: A HR executive explaining leave policy to a new employee can be termed as informative speech about process. Similarly, if a professor explains a scientific concept to his students, it is the perfect example of an informative speech about concepts. If anyone disseminates information about an event verbally, then it can be called an informative speech about events. For example: When a master of ceremony explains about the structure of the event, it is an example of informative speech about events.

    When writing an informative speech, pick out a small number of key points on your specific topic that you want the audience to take away from your speech. Use these points to develop an organizational structure to your speech, which should include an introduction, body, and conclusion.
