Take an acting class, or an improv class. Seriously. Getting comfortable on stage is what actors do, and those are the same skills you need to deliver a solid presentation.

Second thing to do is learn proper microphone skills. That can be done either working with a professional voice trainer (I'm a voice actor, as well), or with any competent sound man/person.

That's the short version.... but there's a LOT of stuff to unpack in there, and deliver via demonstration, in person...

That's very useful advice. Thank you!
