Default Powerpoint presentation is a file named Blank.potx (Office 2007+).
You have to save it in
C:\Users\[YourUserName]\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Templates (it depends on Windows and Office version).

You can do this in one of two ways. Firstly, save it as a the default macro enabled template file (blank.potm) in the correct folder (pushing it to all users via your IT team's group policy). You can also create an application add-in by saving it as a .ppam file and installing it on all machines (that's better as it prevents the user from changing the default template file).
