Speeches can often be boring and bland, especially when the subject matter has been rehashed a million times over by different speakers.  Think about, for example, topics like "The Death Penalty" or "Gun Control"...  Chances are that every point or nuance with some of these, have been explored already. 

Now of course, topics like those still have their place (see the controversial speech topics section for more), but let's take a moment to focus on the different and unique.  Let's have a look at some speech topics that you likely haven't encountered before...
Since most of these topics are very specific and detailed, chances are that a large part of your audience won't know too much about it (unless you're speaking at a MENSA event!), which means you'll have to do a lot of explaining and teaching on the topic before you go into too many specifics.

Finally, when writing on unique speech topics, be sure to follow all the advice and tips on the How To Write a Speech section of this site.
