List of 100 Interesting Speech Topics

Below you'll find a list of 100 interesting speech topics.  They are widely varied in their subject nature and many of them will be irrelevant for your ocassion, or simply not appeal to you.  However, by mining this list you're bound to find something that tickles your interest.

For similar kind of topics, with a blend towards the unique, fascinating and even exotic, have a look at this list of Unique Speech Topics.

Writing on Interesting Speech Topics

Now while a great speech starts with a great topic, it certainly can't end there.  Rather, look at it this way:  A great topic provides a sturdy backbone for your speech, its still incomplete without some 'meat' around it:  Good Content.

The best public speakers aren't satisfied with choosing interesting speech topics, flinging together some questionable material, putting on a salesman smile and hoping for the best.

Writing and generating good content takes time, patience and effort, but the end-result - standing ovation and all - will be worth it.

So do your homework:  Cite interesting facts, use relevant stories, write logically, incorporate quotes and humour if possible, and ultimately ensure your content effectively communicates the main idea you want to bring about in your speech.
No one wants to listen to boring, bland and uninteresting speeches.  In fact, I've never met any audience member anywhere - in any sphere of live - who enjoys listening to public speakers with blah-blah-blah content...  And, colorless content start with colorless topics.

So avoid them like the plaque and rather venture (if the occassion will allow it) to choosing interesting speech topics that will captivate your audience from the outset.
Hoping to get your audience interested?  Fearing that no-one will pay attention once you're on stage?  Scared that your speech will drive the audience to dreamland, instead of to the edge of their seats?  Well then this list of interesting speech topics should do the trick to get people listening and help you present a talk that people will look forward to.
