PowerPoint makes you dumb. More than 70% of PowerPoint presentations are unbearable. Almost everyday, lots of people are killed by bad PowerPoint presentations. PowerPoint is evil.

The key to great presentation is respect your audience. Keep slides simple, use large fonts and relevant photos (not clipart). Best of all, present without slides - encourage interaction, discussion and participation. I do this for some of my training programs. Participants really enjoyed the interaction (and flexibility).
