Is it a speech or a presentation?

Speak Schmeak

A speech imparts information, usually without visuals, and without interaction. It might include visuals, interaction, discussion and other activities to educate, entertain and engage the audience. Seminars and workshops tend to be longer and more interactive than presentations, incorporating group work, experiential exercises and more interaction between participants. There are a lot of words for what I do when I have a speaking engagement.
