Depending on your experience, you will be more or less comfortable presenting to a group. Your level of comfort can be improved with time spent preparing. Specifically, the following techniques can be used to enhance your comfort level:
Practice. Practice the presentation enough to get very familiar with the flow of ideas. Do not memorize the presentation. Practice enough to allow you to present the information naturally.
Plan for objections. Perform a force field analysis to determine objections and your response.
Visualize success. Prior to the presentation, spend some time alone picturing yourself and accomplishing a successful presentation.
