I actually haven't ever done a GeoServer specific presentation, as I 
seem to end up talking more generically about open source and geo.  But 
at OSGEO conference last year Dave Blasby gave a presentation, perhaps 
more in depth and technical than you want, it was more of a workshop, 
but you may be able to get some decent slides:

I'm working on some good slides explaining open source in general, some 
nice diagrams and all, I'll send to you guys when I'm done.

best regards,
