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?
This is a good program also:
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.
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 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.
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!
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 think illustrator is good for the presentation design.
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.

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.)
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.
You really should try Keynote. It is far much better.
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/
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.
Keynote is great and Quote Roller is great for proposal presentations!
http://www.slideshare.net/ has some realy slick templates to use and is a social network for presentations also...
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.
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.
