Not got PowerPoint?

If you don't want to shell out the cash for PowerPoint, LIbreOffice is a great alternative.  It does just about everything PowerPoint does and it's free.  

If you only have a tablet, you can still produce presentations if you have a Google account as Google Drive/Quickoffice can make basic presentations. Go to Google for details.
