Arrrgh! El Presidente got the dates wrong! My presentation skills training is this week! Arrrgh! Arrrgh!
I have to prepare a presentation in advance on a non-technical topic. Any suggestions?

Something you know a bit about - which should narrow things down a bit. How's about "How to prepare and enjoy the perfect mojito" or "Carol Vordeman is a cnut!" or "Weiss bier and the art of a swift lunchtime half" or if it really has to be non-technical, "RPG programming".
You know quite a bit and your mum can help.
Or do something Political?
ANY non-technical topic?
"Advanced pint-lifting and pretty-girl-watching" would make a fine topic.
"How to fall ass backwards into a new PC"?
Even though technology is involved, its the not main focus. Its more of a 'Steal this book' or 'How to win friends and influence people' type topic.
You could talk about being a single dad.
"Dating and the single dad"
The art of Extreme Stairdiving and related dentistry?
Not thinking of it a humiliation would be a good start.
I'd start opening up to yourself about the reasons for this psychological barrier and how it helps define and maintain the status-quo of your life, and how it thus affects your personal developemnt.
Serously - that's how to overcome the fear.
Well that killed the conversation
