Start by assessing your skills and weaknesses in the various areas you need to deal with. This includes everything from appropriate mannerisms and small talk in the opening phases of the meeting, to knowing how to effectively handle probing questions on difficult topics. Review some popular questions and figure out the best way to answer them.
It can be hard to assess yourself objectively when it comes to your voice and manner. Try working with a friend or family member to see if you really project the image you want. Recording yourself can also help you tell if you need to fix your posture or stop using so many filler words. Using a variety of tools to get constructive feedback can help you work on problem areas effectively.
