What is a better slide presentation tool than Microsoft Powerpoint?
I want to make a presentation for a client but Powerpoint just doesn't look modern enough. Do you have any programs that you like to use more for client presentations?
The default answer by many would be Keynote and Prezi. However, in the hands of an expert presentation specialist nothing beats PowerPoint. It allows for the greatest set of story-telling possibilities while maintaining the highest amount of edit ability. It is its vast capabilities that also makes it the most challenging of the three to use. This is why many individual work with the default tub lost based emplates. If you would like to discuss specific capabilities based on your needs, do not hesitate to write to me as the company I work for is rated the best ppt company in the world ( and we also create Keynote, Prezi, and flash presentations too). Good luck.
One presentation tool rarely considered is Evernote but for small, fact based presentations it's worth having a go. There is a Presentation option within the app. Have a look at the tutorial videos on YouTube by Dottotech for instructions if you get stuck.
Steve Jobs once said: "people who know what they are talking about don't need powerpoint".
Flipchart and whiteboard works best for us (IT Consultancy), but I admit that we after the meetings send over a slide set (keynote, powerpoint) addressing what we sketched out.
http://www.slideshare.net/ has some realy slick templates to use and is a social network for presentations also...
Keynote is great and Quote Roller is great for proposal presentations!
I use ProShow Gold by Photodex. It has an easy drop and drag format and can be used for both professional and non-professional purposes.
Emaze and Prezi are GREAT! It really is the next level of presentation tools. PowerPoint has seen its day. These new tools are far more dynamic and visually interesting, and just as robust as PowerPoint. Prezi or Emaze gets a much better reaction from the crowd.
I added a resource here called "The wow factor in your presentation" it is this article. http://www.alwaysintao.com/the-wow-factor-in-your-presentation-2/
You really should try Keynote. It is far much better.
Keynote is the Mac version of Powerpoint, it has way better designed transitions and thiings- Also Prezi is super cool and fun to use. Clients love it!
I like Prezi. It's definitely the most modern, but you should control the spinning and zooming motion on the path, which can make viewers dizzy. But it's definitely a fun, engaging presentation tool.
Prezi. I've used it to create on-line presentations that can be viewed with the mobile viewer. Very flexible, very easy to compose interesting, dynamic and animated presentations.
I'm sure there are many many free and paid programs out there for this, but if you want ease of access for multiple users and several modern presentation styles/features...prezi.com (its free, its easy, it looks like you worked pretty hard.)
Keynote Rocks! Great animations, a large range of transitions, easy to set up, give it a try on a free trial...PPT is old news.

If you are on a Mac you might try Keynote, which is part of Apple's iWork software counterpart to MS Word, Powerpoint, and Excel. iWork is a user friendly and much more graphically sophisticated alternative to Microsoft.
I think illustrator is good for the presentation design.
If you are good with Illustrator then InDesign should be great for that purpose. You can get all the features of powerpoint and keynotes combined. Transitioning is very easy and you can design your own slides rather than importing background graphics. (the case in the other two options - powerpoint and Keynote).
Having said that, Keynote is usually my alternative if InDesign is not available.
This is a good program also:
