Public Speaking Outline Tool

An Outline for Your Informative Speech. To help you organize your informative speech, try placing your ideas and thoughts in the following outline tool:

Introduction - start your speech strong by using a "hook" or attention getter. Then give the big picture of your informative speech, your central point (or thesis statement) and then an overview of where you are going (what you will say) during your speech.

The body of your speech - the main points and evidence (examples, data) to support your case. You will likely have time for three main points or so. Each main point needs to be supported by examples and supporting data, and diagrams, photos, and visual images.

Conclusion - Once you have presented your main points, you need to end strong! The conclusion consists of a reminder of the main points you gave, along with a memorable concluding remark.
