Is it a speech or a presentation?

Speak Schmeak

Sometimes it's a keynote, which is meant to entertain or motivate. A speech imparts information, usually without visuals, and without interaction. A speech is one-way communication designed to inform and sometimes entertain. It might include visuals, interaction, discussion and other activities to educate, entertain and engage the audience. There are a lot of words for what I do when I have a speaking engagement.
