    Practice your speech, if you're confident with what you're going to say and know your content you will find it a great deal easier.

    Speak slowly and clearly, don't rush, although I know it's hard when you are nervous.

    Imagine everyone is sitting on the toilet.

    At the beginning of the speech everyone gets a little bit nervous.

    I recently made a headboy speech, and judging from reactions it was successful. A problem I had was that even though I myself was confident, my legs would shake terribly. To fix this, around every 30 seconds I would charge position and swivel all my weight onto the other for. Hope this helps!

    Experience and practice helps a lot. Same goes for creating a proper mentality, build up your confidence and your determination in your head and go seize the moment.

    1. Realise that although it's important to you, for the people watching, it's probably not such a big deal. This means that you don't need to worry about them, they'll be fine. Unless you're accepting a Nobel prize or some such, but probably you won't get your advice from here of that's the case.
    2. Practise loads. Once you know exactly what you're going to say and you can say it fluently, there is little to be concerned about. In front of the mirror, video yourself, get someone who's opinion you value to watch the video with you and give feedback. Listen to their feedback.
    2a. You have to be able to say it without sounding like you've learned it by rote. You can do this by writing it in a relaxed conversational style and learning it like that with all the interjections and pauses.
    3. Go to the place you are going to do the speech before you have to do it. Make sure you know how the AV system works and that your visuals are compatible with their system. Check that videos work. Check that there is internet access if required. There is nothing worse than getting there 15 mins early, all prepared, then getting stressed because you've not got the correct cable.
    4. Think really hard about who you're talking to, what they know already, what they might want to know. Realise that what is interesting to you might not be interesting to them.

    You'll be fine. Good luck!

    Hitler knew about the power of body language in speeches as well.

    Speak slowly and with purpose. You need to be crystal clear in what you're trying to say.
