Ooh - another thing with presenting Yums - however odd it feels, make sure you do your WHOLE presentation, taking as long as the real one will take, in front of a mirror. Ridiculous, but it really helps me - I'm usually pretty garbled the first time I say the words, and if I say them over and over (explaining the same things, even if the words aren't exactly the same) before the day, then that helps me feel a bit more secure. If I've timed it I also know I'm not going to worry about going over and being told to shut up and then getting all flustered!
Just writing a presentation myself as it happens Getting slightly distracted as I've promised to meet a pal after it for cocktails and thinking about that instead (it's not til November, but it's already rocking my concentration!)
