  • Changes audiences attitudes, beliefs and behavior
  • Gets something from the audience
  • Persuasion can be informative
  • Tends to have more controversial purpose
  • Expect powerful response from listers
  • Requires greater degrees of proof and earning amounts of credibility

Informative speeches are given to increase knowledge on specific topic or subject and can be presented with or without persuasion.
