Free Public Speaking Topics You Can Use

Choosing your speech topics can be one of the hardest parts of preparing a speech - and it's the first thing you have to do! Don't want to have to browse topics on the internet? I recommend grabbing the Persuasive Speaker's Kit.

So, to help you choose your topic, we've prepared topic lists of important, interesting, and funny public speaking topics. Different kinds of speeches are listed below, each with a description and link to a list of 10 topics.

If you have a great idea for a speech topic, show it off! Enter it here. Or, to see ideas submitted by other readers and speakers, click here.

All links below are alphabetical (minus words such as "good" and "free"). If we have more than one list of topics covering the same subject, they're listed next to each other.

Scroll up and down to find what you need!

These are topics you would use in a debate or question-and-answer setting. They're somewhat controversial, and can be a lot of fun to argue. Just don't get offended!

Have Great Speech Topics?

Do you have great speech topics that we don't? Show them off! Submission ideas:

  • "Creative Speech Topics"

  • "Persuasive Speech Topics"

  • "Unique Speech Topics"

  • "Humorous Speech Topics"

If you have one great speech topic to show off, tell us how you used it (or how you plan to use it) and how it turned out.

If you submit a list, be certain to include not just a list of topics, but explanations with each (see our topic pages above as an example). Everyone will appreciate your contribution!
