It sounds mildly interesting, not critical/urgent/important. More like a point of curiousity than a tool no DBA can survive without.
Understanding Execution Plans
Every DBA runs into this. You've got a query that's not doing what you want, or not doing it fast enough. What's going on inside it? Are the indexes being used? How are the tables being joined? WHY IS IT SO SLOW!?! The answers to all of these questions and more are found within SQL Server execution plans, which are a complete pain to read if you aren't familiar with them. This presentation will clarify when and how to read an execution plan. Most importantly, how to trace down query problems in them, and the detailed information needed to solve those problems.
The abstract also sounds like it may be covering too much ground. Execution plans is a big subject. Books could be written on them :-). Cut down the abstract to what you'll actually cover in the presentation, which won't be encyclopedic or comprehensive. Is it an introduction? Intermediate? Advanced? How focused vs general?
