Is it a speech or a presentation?

Speak Schmeak

I give presentations, talks, workshops, seminars and keynotes. Sometimes it's a keynote, which is meant to entertain or motivate. 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. There are a lot of words for what I do when I have a speaking engagement. I speak on panels and I give speeches.
