I'm not the best person to ask for this, but I'll tell you what I have heard works and has kind of worked for me. I just have a huge fear of public speaking that I haven't seemed to fully overcome.
- Know your material inside and out. If you feel prepared and like you know what you are presenting, it will be easier to speak about when the time comes. You also won't be as flustered if someone asks a question during your presentation, too.
- Practice, practice, practice what you are going to say with any slideshows, notes, handouts, props, etc... that you plan on using. Get into the flow of saying what you've prepared, but without sounding like a robot. It wouldn't hurt having a practice audience either, even if it's just one or two people (friends, group members, family...)
- Once you are presenting, look at the back of the room instead of at people's faces. It's easier to talk to a wall than it is into the eyes of your peers typically. I know that throws me off otherwise.
Good luck with them!
