Is it a speech or a presentation?

Speak Schmeak

It's usually the only time someone can get away with reading directly from a piece of paper. 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.
