Yes. at first it will be hard,but but once you will start the presentation you can get along with it. Just like its little difficult when you start your bike with a load of 100 kg behind it, but once you start running, no problem at all.

Giving a good presentation is certainly difficult, but do not go on thinking that it is difficult. If you think like that, then it will be horribly diffiuclt. Just think it is easy and then it will be really much easier. relax, as much as possible. Yes, good clothing should be worn. There is no need to wear any superbly excellent clothing. Any clothing which covers the body in a decent manner posiblbe is more than enough. When it comes to eye contact, you should not stare intensely at the audience. You should look at them, but in avery natural manner. A little bit of nervousness does not matter. Do not try to exert yourself by hiding the nervousness. If there is a little bit of stammering or trembling, allow it to happen. Just relax with it, do not fight with it.
