Over the years I demoed Squeak in various forums and for various audience. You can get the images I developed at http://stephane.ducasse.free.fr/Web/Demoes/. Use the threadNavigator to navigate from project to project. Stef
At http://stephane.ducasse.free.fr/Web/Demoes/ you can also find ready to use bookmorph (kind of powerpoint squeak presentations that present Squeak, why this is good for teaching and gentle introduction to Smalltalk. mailto:email@example.com
For teachers, you can use the draft of my forthcoming book:
http://kilana.unibe.ch:9090/caroandbot/ and the environment I develop: http://kilana.unibe.ch:9090/caroandbot/environment/. My wife uses it in college (11 to 15 years old). mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org

Some tips for presentations:
See share your created morphs for some enhanced morphs and a movie created with Squeak. (including a tutorial how to do this)
You can also use the following code snippets in a workspace: World's smallest drawing program, and this Star Wars like Scroller.
If you want to present Squeak to people you should show/mention the following cool things in Squeak:
(you can also write a tape)

Maybe http://homes.acmecity.com/animation/dynamite/405/ can give you a little help. It's not yet finished. Click on "About Squeak" to find videos, screenshots, ...Note that this page is temporary until I find a appropriate free server with ftp access and no advertising. So please don't set links to this page.
Hope this helps,
I gave a brownbag to Georgia Tech's GVU Center using the slides at http://coweb.cc.gatech.edu:8888/cs2340/uploads/gvubb-nov99.ppt. I started out showing the video from "Triumph of the Nerds" of Adele Goldberg demonstrating Smalltalk-80, then Steve Jobs describing what he saw and what he missed. I continued by pointing out what else he missed. I used Squeak to demonstrate ST-80 features, then went on to show other cool things in Squeak. Mark Guzdial
