Is it a speech or a presentation?

Speak Schmeak

I speak on panels and I give speeches. 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. I give presentations, talks, workshops, seminars and keynotes. There are still more names for public speaking, but the format I enjoy the least is the "speech." You know what a speech is.
