HTML and CSS
I have given a number of presentations introducing audiences to HTML5 and CSS3. These tend to be specific to the audience I am talking to. An introduction to CSS3 for a back-end developer audience needs a different approach to that given to complete beginners.
I have many years of experience in teaching these subjects through my writing and am always happy to present on them.
