You have 4 weeks to practise!!!
 Seven tips for a great one:
1- Deliver a performance, rather than a speech.
2- Use the power of eye contact.
3- Posture matters.
4- Tell fun and compelling facts or stories.
5- Don't use a monotone (change your tone of voice).
6- Speak about what you know and what you care about..dress up if you will :)
7- Talk from the heart!
