Overcoming fear of public speaking using the 'faking it until you make it' strategy.
When I was in advertising and public relations and found myself feeling insecure and not confident, even though I knew my materials, I would take a minute to re-adjust my reality.

Sometime prior to my "act" I would take a minute to get into my role... and I usually pulled it off.

My problem was what if they don't like my speech? What if I get stuck? What if I forget what I have to say? ...
And then I realized; people were not there to judge me. They were there to listen to what I had to say!
Don't worry too much about making a mistake. We all make them and that's how we learn and grow to get better.
