Informative speakers succeed when they are excited about the content, know it we

Informative speakers succeed when they are excited about the content, know it well, and make the subject important and beneficial to the audience.   The goal is to inform your audience about a topic in a 7 to 8-minute speech. Think of informative speaking as “teaching.” Your goals of informative speaking are to enhance our understanding, recall, and interest (see Chapter 15 Speaking to Inform).
