If they train seriously in boxing, wrestling, judo, etc, they should be ok against an average attacker (better than if not trained). If a person was not going to train regularly in anything, this is what I would impress upon them because you aint gonna learn any technique unless you train it seriously. I think these are good rules for anyone anyway.
1. Run real fast.
2. Scream real loud.
3. Trust your gut. If it says danger, it is probably right.
4. Don't walk at night (or ride the bus, subway, etc) with headphones on.
5. Don't walk with your hands in your pockets.
6. Drape a backpack on one shoulder, not on both.
7. If you see a possible trouble situation, walk the other way.
8. Don't leave a friend drunk at the bar.
9. Keep a mental perimiter and don't let people inside of it.
10. Don't talk **** someone with a weapon.
11. Don't talk **** at all...be humble and calm.
12. Always get something between you and a possible attacker (car, tree, table, etc)
13. A wallet is worth giving away if it keeps you safe.
14. If you have to fight, show no mercy and go for the vitals with whatever you have available...fingernails, keys, chair, barstool, whatever.

Without reading the other responses first, I'll take a shot:
1. Lunge Punch
but seriously I'd say (in no order of importance)
4. Collar tie with knees
5. Double leg
6. Single leg
7. Basic guard pass
8. Basic collar choke from mount
9. Rear naked choke
10. Bridge and roll.
Yeah. I understand there are problems with this list. Some of these technqiues cant really be done without including other technqiues. It also needs to be said that teaching these techniques in isolation would render them almost completly innefectual. It's not just the specific techniques of BJJ or Boxing that make the style good, it's the systematic approach to coaching and the inclusion of everything else that goes on to make these technqiues work such as positioning, dealing with resistance, dealing with sucessful attacks, controlling the position and so on. If you took a person and showed each of these techniques and then had them do it on a passive partner, you might as well teach them ninjitsu.
EDIT: Just read the other responses, and I forgot sprawl. ****. I hate this game, I'm going home. (there's also some really funny stuff by the chunners and kungers, I'm glad I'm not at your self defence class.)

Why would that be important? On one shoulder the backpack would be easier to steal and the uneven weight distribution would interfere with fighting and might fall off. Or, is the point that you can take off the pack easier on one shoulder?

If you get the reference you win the Internets.
Ohh trust me you will!!!!
