Peter; cool beans!
My "advice" is to scrap the talk if you have already given a number of presentations. I would go with something new, simply to do something new:-)
The HOW would be my first choice, because it would be a definite! Trainings have a way of dropping out from under you if/when not enough people sign up for them... unless you are willing to spend all of that time and effort to spend 3.5 - 4.5 hours training 1 or 2 or 3 people. HOW's are always conducted and always have a good-sized "audience".
Your call of course; just my own biased opinion on what I would do.
Peter, best of luck in all your SAS endeavors!
I hope that this suggestion proves helpful now, and in the future!
