If you want to try your hand presenting for a small number of strangers, try volunteering to present for your local SQL user group or for one of SQL PASS’s virtual chapters. This will introduce you to presenting via a small audience either in person or online. You can find a local chapter near you or a virtual chapter that matches the topic on which you want to present on the Chapters page on the SQL PASS website.

In addition to SQL PASS, there are other groups that may have local chapters or virtual chapters for whom you could present such as the SQL Server Worldwide Users Group. You might also consider looking for a tangential technology (such as SharePoint or DevOps) user group that needs SQL Server presenters.
