Despite the fact that public speaking is one of the most common phobias that employees suffer from, it's easy to overcome. You just have to have the will!
What to do:
... realize that the audience is not expecting you to mess up-- they actually want you succeed in your endeavors.
... by preparing. The more you tailor your speech, the more likely it is that people will listen to you despite your naiveté in the craft and nervousness.
