Imitate as strongly as possible the setting of your future speech. Never sit at your table or computer screen and read your speech .Rather than, stand up. Move around before your imaginary spectators.

If possible rehearse your speech in the real room where you will conduct your speech. Ask some friends to come and sit in the chairs and present it before them. If you perform your speech before some friends, instead of by yourself, you can enhance your confidence in presenting it before the spectators or strangers afterward.

If you are planning to use audio-visual aids and props in your real speech, use them in your practice also. This will make you more comfortable with your visual aids when the real time comes to you. Moreover, pre-practicing with your audio-visual aids and props makes you to work out whichever technical problems that may occur.

Rehearse your speech with the help of various gestures and voice modulation. Make out which one looks more natural and which one feels uncomfortable. After you have recognized the ones you plan to use in your presentation, rehearse them until they are faultless.

Remember that, in the real speech, tension may make you speak a bit faster than you performed in your rehearsal. You should create allowances for these possibilities in your rehearsal. Normally, it is more satisfactory to descend a bit short of the time period than it is to exceed that limit. However you must not go down the fixed time by more than a minute or two. Fix the time accurately while you practice your speech.

Bear in mind, the more time you spend in rehearsal, the better your presentation will be. Keep on practicing until you feel satisfaction. Practice makes you to give an effective speech and moreover you feel confident and enthusiastic.
