Here's a list of practical demonstrative speech topics. If people want to know what you're telling them, they'll listen - because it's useful to them!

  • Fix a flat tire. It's not fun to be stranded on the side of the road. Teach people how to fix a flat tire.
  • Tie a tie. Even women wear ties sometimes. Being able to ty a good full windsor knot is an essential skill.
  • Iron clothes. Teach people how to iron their clothes faster and better. Some techniques work better than others. If you can help people both save time and look better, chances are they'll listen.
  • Fix a leaky faucet. Stop that incessant drip! Fixing faucets isn't hard, and is a very useful skill to have.
  • Do laundry. How do you get your colors bright? Laundry technique can go well beyond the usual dump-in-the-detergent-and-walk-away routine.
  • Write a resume. Resumes are essential to landing jobs, yet most people don't know how to go beyond the basic list format.
  • Use a tool. Pick any useful tool. Teach people how to use it.
  • Fix a computer. Slightly harder, but important to know in this technological age.
  • Grow a plant. If the plant is fruit-bearing, even better. Teach people to cultivate their green thumbs.
  • Build a website. Your demonstrative speech may only be able to cover a portion of this topic. Unless you use Site Build It like I do, because SBI will teach you everything you need to know.

Some speeches go in one ear and out the other. Use these demonstrative speech topics to give people something useful - so they'll listen.
