-      Make sure the print is big enough to easily read.

-      Number the pages to keep them organized.

     Memorize the words you will be saying during the

in advance.

     Be prepared and anticipate questions and answers.

     Know your subject so well that the only thing you will
be anxious about is how you will deliver the message.

     Anticipate potential problems, and be ready to resolve
them if they should occur.
