Just to supplement a bit the answer of David,
the notebook with a banner may be comfortably created from an external notebook. To achieve this, one can copy the code below 
to any notebook and execute it. This will create a new slide-show-notebook with nothing, but a banner. The latter consists 
in this example of a combination of a table and a picture. Making a combination of other items seems to be straightforward.

(* This defines a picture  *)
rose = Import["ExampleData/rose.gif"];

(* This defines a table *)
tbl = Grid[{
    {Style["This is a first term"], 
     Style["This is a second term"]}, {Style["This is a third term"], 
     Style["This is a fourth term"]}
                }, Dividers -> Directive[Black, Thickness[2]], 
   ItemSize -> {15, 2}];

(* This defines a notebook to be created *)
nb1 = CreateDocument[];

(* This opens a notebook with the banner consisting of a table and a 
picture  *)
 DockedCells -> {FEPrivate`FrontEndResource["FEExpressions", 
     TextCell[Row[{tbl, rose}], "Text", TextAlignment -> Right]]]}]

David, thank you for the answer. Alexei

Ah, so many questions...  :-)

You only have to execute this once, then you can remove the command
from your presentation and save it.  The docked cell will then be a
part of your notebook (in its options settings).

Another way to do this is to modify the stylesheet for the notebook in
question.  I don't have time at the moment to write up that code (to
do it automatically)  and debug it.  Alas, the day job and mortgage
payments beckon...

I hope that this helps.  If I misunderstood the question, let me know
via direct email and I will find an answer for you and then post it to
the group.
