Relax. Don't get fixated on not mucking up. If you piss up and no-one notices, pretend it ddin't happen. If you piss up & people notice, be able to laugh at yourself. Make sure you're well prepared. If you know your presentation well you won't have to think as much about the content, and can concentrate on how you present it. Don't imagine everyone naked. You'll either scream from the horror of it or pop a boner. Neither is good.

Don't learn the material word for word, if you screw one bit up you'll panic, instead learn the topic, and learn talking about the topic as apposed to reading a script, that way its far more relaxing, and much less chance of fumbling for words.
