The introduction of the informative speech should contain an attention-grabber, followed by a statement about your topic. It should end with a strong transition into your body section.
As an example, we’ll look at a template for an informative speech called "African-American Heroines." The length of your speech will depend on the amount of time you have been allotted to speak.
The red section of the speech above provides the attention-grabber. It makes the audience member think about what life would be like without civil rights.
The last sentence states directly the purpose of the speech and leads into the speech body.
