This LibreOffice Impress template can be used by speakers on the day who wish to make presentations.
Blank space has been left on the bottom left footer for sponsor logos or to print your team's location.
I just created another template for Impress. Maybe there's plenty of room for improvements, but I think it's a good starting point.
The colors for header and footer are adapted from the logo (orange and green).
In the footer of the master I use the font "cc-icons", which can be downloaded from here.
Model document in Spanish to prepare slides of the conference, based on an alternative design..
OpenDocument Presentation template created in LibreOffice Impress. Background image file created using Inkscape. Default font is set to Linux Biolinum O from the Libertine Open Fonts Project. See screenshot below:
Modified SFD_presentation_slide.otp with front page, custom bullets and page number for our celebrations at ECOSS. See screenshot below:
If someone is interested in a 3-fold-flyer, here we go. Our Community uses this to give some brief information about the community itself, Free Software in general and our goals.
I changed the Ubuntu logo to SFD2010 logo and used the logo-colors (orange and green) like in the above Impress-template.
Source is Scribus. Feel free to adapt it and change it to your needs. Surely you can take out the logo of our community and replace it with your own or any other background you wish to use.
These flyers are designed in LibreOffice Writer and are intended for different audiences to promote FOSS products of interest to that audience.

Call for Papers
CFC.svg - A Call for Papers/Speakers template in Spanish.
Software Freedom is a huge topic and it is very easy to lose your audience. We recommend keeping a focus during the day, also remember that it is not about people moving to GNU/Linux or BSD but getting aware of what is Free Software and giving them the smoothest possible introduction to it, finding things that they could do with minimum changes using FOSS. Get them interested and give them time.
We all have at one point or another made introduction to Free Software, different licenses and why it matters. Here are a few contributed slides.
WhySoftwareFreedomMatters.odp: Covers key points of the importance of Software Freedom
How to join a Free Software Project and why
Here is a presentation to explain audiences how to join a Free Software project and why. It will cover the definition of Free Software and a Free Software Project, how to participate and contribute, where should they start and the reasons why they should participate or contribute.
HowToJoinAFreeSoftwareProjectAndWhy.odp: Aim at attracting more participants and contributors for Free Software. This presentation is translated into other languages: Bengali, Bangladesh (বাংলা, বাংলাদেশ)
FOSS for non-profits
This was an LibreOffice Impress presentation given a few years ago to members of non-profit organizations.
FOSS in solving everyday issues
Those presentations are meant to give examples of problems which we all face everyday and can have a (multiplatform) FOSS solution. One need to be familiar with the problem discussed and the tools presented as people WILL have questions.

Free audio and video from the FSF
Video and audio recordings of speeches and other events related to the Free Software Foundation or the GNU project are available from the GNU website at this address: http://audio-video.gnu.org/
FOSS stuff on DVDs
Each year we master a number of DVDs that we ship together with the SFD team pack for teams with poor Internet connection so they can duplicate them and redistribute. We have made those ISO files available for download through bit torrent:
SFD2011FreeCulture.iso : Free Culture content and documentaries
- MD5 = 966b799333ecdd6c096fe195d6f246b6
- SHA256 = ae7796b7d33e6c6fbf4f8b1137a18b8d98ea6d0128e3bf091edb9ec07b44f9e3
- Size: 4.3G (4629086208 bytes)
Spanish language teams may want to also distribute DVDs based on the ISOs available at http://cdlibre.org/descargar/index.html
For those wanting the latest OpenDisc Chris just mastered a new ISO for SFD available at http://www.theopendisc.com
AppleUsers.org has also mastered a collection of FOSS applications for MAC. Any SFD team can get access to the torrent by filling out the form at the bottom of the page (the idea is to list your group in the above list as a supplier of the Spotlight on FOSS DVD. It will also enable AppleUsers.org to contact you if we need additional seeders for the Golden Master. So the links are:

Websites to look for movies
Archive.org is sure the best site to find (not only) free and open source movies. Also if you like to share your movies!
There are a few fully free (as in Freedom) publications out there, often covering Free and Open Source Source stuff and worth mentioning, distributing or advertising during conversations and SFD events:
LiBRE! Magazine (Serbian)
Stuff that didn't make it in other categories above but worth mentioning and which could entice people to cover the topic:
