Veteran speaker, Michael Angelo Caruso, recommends that you do NOT use PowerPoint and gives three reasons why:
1) Distinguish yourself as a speaker and become better presenter
2) Use only one slide, if you must. Make it a photo and tell a story related to it. Presentations should have a call to action and good stories motivate better average bullet points.
3) If your boss insists that you use PowerPoint, only use it in the middle third of your talk so you can close in the final third of your presentation.
