It's unclear whether you're asking for actual slideshow content 
examples, on the one hand, or slideshow templates, on the other hand.

If the latter, my advice is first to concentrate upon content: what is 
the main idea you want to make on each slide, and how to do it.

If the latter, then a lot depends on what use you intend to make of the 
slideshow.  If it's for a conference, for example, possibly there's 
already some template available (if it's a Mathematica conference) or at 
least some logo you could incorporate.  Or include a logo from whatever 
institution, company, etc., you're affiliated with.  But don't 
concentrate upon "neat-looking" and over-decorated stuff.  Keep the 
slide design simple so as to put all the attention upon the content, not 
the fluff.  In other words, don't make it a PowerPoint affair!
