Not that big deal actually, I can totally understand that the webteam
looked like stalled for a longer period of time because of no
information got out and not very much visibly has changed over time. We
could have done better on actively asking for input more regularly, and
in the last year a lot has changed within the webteam.

Actually picking up information from events that are known to publish
slides and from which it is known that Debian people attended and gave
Debian related talks shouldn't be too much effort. Then again, gathering
that information is the tough part here.
The events team is also in a restructuring phase from what I understood
and I hope that such an information flow can get established. Also it's
not an issue of occasionally forgetting about a notification, it's an
issue of receiving no notifications, at all.

An rss2email setup shouldn't be too complicated. Is this something
others who do regular Debian related talks could offer, too?

Right, usually people do blog about their talks, and some special
feed/tag could work out in the bigger part.
Definitely worth a try - thanks for planting the idea!
