And the body that sets such "standards" would be...whom?
If they want a serif font, I suggest an Egyptian or "slab serif" font with little if any variation in stroke width. I've used these in the past in PowerPoint with some success...anything to relieve the groans that are an inescapable part of *any* PowerPoint presentation these days!
What you might ask the marketing department if you're feeling particularly feisty is whether they have seen any surveys about the impact that these presentations actually have among potential clients...

Can anyone point me toward some credible resources that explain that sans
serif fonts are preferred for power point presentations? The marketing
department at my company is claiming that there are different standards for
technical and marketing presentations.
