Tip: why use PDF instead of PowerPoint
PowerPoint presentations that contain important information, such as a Board meeting agenda or an annual financial report, are almost always sent as PDFs. This is to ensure that the recipient sees the original formatting of the presentation and to ensure the file remains secure.
Even between the Windows and Apple versions of Microsoft Office, subtle differences often result in different users seeing slightly different formatting of a presentation.
Secondly, PDF files prevent users from making changes (without leaving an auditable trail) and can also be password protected. Most presentations containing sensitive materials are thus always sent as PDFs.
