We have a few videos that demonstrate Mockups and myBalsamiq that might be useful introductions to these products. You can view them on YouTube, or if you prefer, download the Quicktime files.
Demo Talking Points: when talking about Mockups in front of a crowd, I would start by showing our short demo video, maybe with the volume turned off so that you can speak over it.
As for talking points, I would stress:
Once you fire up the application, I would show these features: hiding the UI Library and using Quick Add instead, showing how easy it is to add data to a Data Grid (including checkboxes, toggling the scrollbar with one click), our use of progressive disclosure when resizing a large selection (the size in pixels shows up only when you need it) or by typing "lorem" into a Paragraph of Text control. Then, to show that the tool is deeper than it looks, I would import an image (make sure you show the "Sketch it!" feature) and show the Icon Library. If you still have time, reusable Symbols are a great finisher.
A personal story is also always very powerful, so if Mockups saved you some time or helped you think through a UI recently, definitely talk about it! :)
Good luck with your demo, let us know how it went! :)
