* Write out the presentation in full. Sentences should be short and to the point.
* Learn the speech. Record it and listen to it over and over again until it sinks in.
* Do not be concerned about learning the speech word-for-word. However, learn the first two minutes by heart. This will alleviate initial nervousness.
* Write out notes onto small cards in case a prompt is necessary midway.
* When a speech is being given in unfamiliar territory then visit the site beforehand. Check audio and visual systems and become familiar with the environment.
* Make alternate plans in case any audio or visual system fails. Always have a back-up plan in case something goes wrong. This will give a greater sense of confidence prior to speaking a word.
