I think you need to be confident with the material - this includes the content of the presentation as well as trying to anticipate (within reason) the questions you will be fielded with.

Everyone (even seasoned speakers) get some form of the jitters. Only they tend manage it better due to experience. I find when speaking or performing on stage , once you've warmed up (after the first 5 minutes), you'll stop thinking of it. So it's a matter of getting over the first hurdle. Good luck!

Sure, people will tell you to imagine like you're only talking to one person or something, but honestly, who are you fooling?

Just tell yourself your the boss, you only live life once, live it to the fullest, and give a damn good speech.  You have the authority and what you say goes, so just go up there and go up with confidence!  JUST DO IT!  You can achieve anything, only fear is a little barrier set up your mind, all you have to do is dive headfirst into it and not think about the consequences.

DO NOT LOOK AT THE PEOPLE. LOOK AT THE WALL ABOVE THE PEOPLE IN THE LAST ROW.
Prentend your talking to a wall. This has ALWAYS improved my singing.

Imagine you're talking to one person. Part of the difficulty you have is trying to spread yourself over a crowd - see the people as an individual entity and you may find things easier.
