The Six Basic Stages of Public Speaking

First, determine your speech's topic and purpose. 

Second, analyze your audience so you can adapt your speech 
to them. 

Third, thoroughly research your topic. 

Fourth, organize your ideas in a way that fits your topic, purpose, and audience. 

Fifth, rehearse your speech aloud, preferably in front of an audience. 

Sixth, manage your voice and body, presentation media, audience, and time when you present your speech.

I think the hardest part of my speech presentation was watching the time. I was nervous until I got up there but, once I was up there most of that went away.
