Always approach the audience as friends.
I’m not sure about the rest of you, but I used to look at speakers like they were practically gods. Now don’t get me wrong, I still have major amounts of respect for people that speak and teach, especially professional transcribing company. When I was first asked to speak my first reaction was “I’m not good enough to speak. Those people are better than me! The audience doesn’t want to see me.” If you are asked to speak, train, or do a webinar, stop that thinking immediately. If you were asked, you ARE good enough. And the audience is there to learn from you. Treat them like your friends, people on your level that just want to hear your story. Taking that pressure off you and putting yourself in that more comfortable position makes speaking easier.
When I speak, I tell stories and find people to look in the eye. When I’m doing training on video, I think of the student that is sitting in front of the computer learning SEO. I speak to that one student. It makes it so much easier if you tell stories of your experience to a friend.

On video, enunciate and practice beforehand.
Have you ever looked at a transcript of a video posted to Youtube of yourself? I just did, and you can tell where I was speaking carefully. There are other times that what I said sounds like different words entirely.  If you are taped for training or anything else, try to think of enunciating. As you can see, I do stumble a lot but that’s part of the story telling. What I do wish is that I had practiced meeting minutes transcription software more. On video, your facial gestures are very pronounced. This is the first time I’ve seen myself on camera, and man, talk about eye opening! My tip from this experience is to set up a flip beforehand and practice. 
Don’t be afraid to ask
The final piece of advice is to ask questions, but not just of your audience. Yes that is a good way to get them to interact (but rather poor, I’m horrible at that one) but what I am talking about here is asking other speakers and presenters about advice. If you need help on a topic, the content for your presentation, ask. Ask your colleagues, ask Twitter. I have friends on the conference circuit that have made powerful presentations by merely asking twitter for their tips on certain topics. It is amazing what others are willing to help you with, you just need to ask.
