Here in Australia we have a couple of presentations + abstracts ready to 
go if someone wants to present them.

"The Business Case for Open Source, from a Geospatial Perspective"
"The Open Source Geospatial Stack"

Contact me if you are interested, and I'll give you the latest versions 
and abstracts as well.
