A big congratulations to you Rachael. I know you'll do great. I'm having my first ever online tech talk this week too on Women Who Code. I watched a video from them and wrote down some important points. One of them is to not go all out for presentation slides. While prepping my slides, i tried using canva but i found it too flashy for my likeness. So im sticking with google slides. I found a really cool but simple template. Also try to just act normally. They are just humans like you. Next, try to prepare time for questions. I plan to have 8mins for questions. Also take note of some question askers : softballs, challengers, mic hog and contrararian. I wish you the best on your talk.
