Since Storyline doesn't use PowerPoint like Articulate Presenter does, it doesn't really make sense to have a finalized presentation viewable in PowerPoint.  Storyline has a lot of things that would never transfer over to PowerPoint including variables and triggers.  As a result, I suggest telling your boss that this software isn't meant to work with PowerPoint, and show him the published version of the presentation instead.  I can't think of any reason your boss would insist that it is in PowerPoint for viewing.  The point is to see the final product, correct?

Hello Kerianne! That's weird. There may be a couple things going on here to evoke this type of response from your boss. He or she may be looking to review a storyboard rather than the final product? The storyboard/scripting process typically takes place prior to anything going into Storyline for some and the bosses I have worked with usually want to see that storyboard ASAP so they can review your concept and content. Some do storyboarding and developing at the same time in Storyline I know, but your boss might be thinking storybaord = PowerPoint.

Anyway, as others have posted, you can not convert a .story file to a .pptx file.

This is not true!  When you write a training program - rather than rewrite the ENTIRE thing again - to create variations using work already completed should be considered a mandatory part of the program.  We can IMPORT ... but not EXPORT ..... that is crazy!
