Is it a speech or a presentation?

Speak Schmeak

There are a lot of words for what I do when I have a speaking engagement. I speak on panels and I give speeches. There are still more names for public speaking, but the format I enjoy the least is the "speech." We were judged on things like voice, movement, organization of content, and whether we stayed within our time limit, and in categories called "dramatic interpretation," "extemporaneous speaking," "oral interpretation," and others I can't remember.
