Any virtual DIY presentation making tools that take care of the design while I focus on the content?

If i must create a presentation/deck that I can circulate virtually (my target audience insists on one), what are the best DIY tools out there that can take care of the designing while I focus on the content. MS ppt is great but need a Google Slides kind of solution where i can control access/make changes in realtime but with a lot more tools to customize. The goal is to 'storyboard' the pitch to make it more interesting and engaging.

A few years ago, I hit the wall with presentations, and compiled a wish list of software features and services that would help, if only I could find them:

Since then I've been collecting links in Diigo, whenever I came across something that looked promising. If some of this resonates with you, have a look through my links and see if any of them are what you're looking for. Haiku Deck might be a good place to start.

If you can avoid getting too carried away with twisting and turning too much, you might give prezi a try. It is very easy to use and very easy to go overboard on. Not sure it meets all your realtime engagement needs but it will certainly make things more interesting and engaging.

You can also check out emaze.com.

I am not sure how many of their templates focus on business presentations.

To be honest, I have not actually used them. I only know about them since I sold them my emaze.com domain that I first purchased in 1996 but finally stopped using.

Thanks for the help everyone. Signed up/looked at each one suggested here and so far slidebean (thanks florian) is the easiest one to get started with. Spoke to the guys there and looks like they have some more features lined up that should help.

Alper - looking forward to xtensio's solution once it is ready.

Kerry - you were right about the twists n turns with prezi..couldn't get started..which isn't to say that the tool is not good but just that slidebean was simpler.

Jessica - i did look at slidechef but it appeared to offer consultancy services vs a tool that i could use myself.

Ended up tweaking the solution to suit the tool..exactly how it is not supposed to be. If only i could tell my audience on how they should absorb the pitch.
