Informative Speaking > Introduction to Informative Speaking Defining an Informative Speech • This type of speech uses descriptions, demonstrations, vivid detail, and definitions to explain a subject, person, or place the audience wants to understand. • An informative speech makes a complex topic easy to understand or offers a different point of view. • Unlike persuasive speeches, an informative speech relies less on pathos and more on communicating information.

  • 8.

  • 10. Informative Speaking > Effective Informative Speaking Demonstrate the Relevance of the Topic • You can make a topic relevant by choosing a timely topic. • Another way to make a topic relevant is to tell the audience why they should care about the particular subject of your speech. • Making a topic relevant for your audience increases the likelihood that they will remember the information contained in your speech.

  • 12. Informative Speaking > Effective Informative Speaking Tailor Abstraction to Your Audience • The ability to simplify experiences with a word makes it easier to communicate, but it also makes us lose the connection to the specific meaning that we want to convey through the abstract wording. • When you want the audience to make a concrete connection to their direct experience, remember to come down to earth on the the abstraction ladder. You can move up the ladder again to talk about boarder concepts. • Your objective when choosing words is not to avoid abstract general words altogether, but rather to avoid using them when your audience needs more specific,concrete connections to what you are saying.

  • 14. Informative Speaking > Effective Informative Speaking Utilize Devices to Enhance Audience Understanding • Visual aids such as graphs, handouts, slide show presentations, and objects can help audiences understand complicated subjects.
