Sounds like the solution is political rather than technical.

If it seems expedient to do so, find the marketing guru that the new
president has been talking with. Ask his/her advice, noting that the
President suggested that s/he had some idea of a great tool, other than PPT,
for making presentations. S/he may say that it IS PPT, in which case, you
ask whether he knows of someone who can show you one of these non-linear

Sometimes, what they say, what they know, and what's real are all different

By talking nicely (asking advice) to the marketeer, you not only open a
door, but you also give him/her a chance to show off. And you might save
yourself some work. At least you could go to the prexy and say, "So-and-so
thinks that <name of tool> is the way to go. If we use the same tool as
Marketing, in this case, we could [don't gag!] leverage our synergies
between marketing and tech pubs" (or some such thing).

Just a thought, but IME, people who send others off on quests like this
often already have in mind the answer that they want, and you have to figure
out what it is. Allies never hurt.
