Know what he has to accomplish but prepare for questions and comments concerning the subject matter around what he had to present. Knowing as much as he could helped him be less anxious because he felt like he could handle what was thrown at him.
Wow the fact that your son had a stroke and has still become so successful is so admirable! You must be very proud of him.

Yeah I'm going to prepare as much as I can and create the best presentation I can. I'm just worried about turning red when I speak, and my voice shaking while I do it.
