If you're looking for an informative speech outline sample,
you've come to the right place. You're getting that and
so much more...
First, if this is the first page you've seen on PulseMed.org
about speaking, view our other speech
writing and giving resources, including a bunch more
pages on writing and giving an informative speech.
Below is my 8 step process for creating an informative
speech. So far, we've gone through the first 3 steps. You might
want to go back and start with an earlier page. I'll wait here
for you. :-)
- List of example informative
- How to get
an idea informative speech topic.
- Brainstorming (fleshing out) a good

- (THIS PAGE) An informative speech outline

Later you'll consolidate it into a simpler format for speaking.

process above is actually an outline for these webpages on creating
an informative speech. You need to understand the basics of outlines
first, so if you're not sure, try these links:
Ok, so take a look now at my informative
speech outline sample (pdf) - click on the link and it opens
another window, or right-click, Save As, and open it from wherever
you save it.
You'll notice there are actually two outlines there. The
long one came first, and then I created the short one to guide
my speech. I'll talk more about using the outline to speak from
when in the section with the audio mp3.
The next step is to create
your own informative speech outline.
- If you're nervous about giving your talk, or want to know
- Getting the audience into it
- Getting your points across
- Not putting them to sleep, and
- Feeling good about it after you're done giving it
- ... then you need to listen to the audio
example of informative speech and read my notes on the
