If you want absolute layout fidelity use PDF. That's the reason it's
been designed, not ODF.

PDF is used for keeping printing fidelity. It's not an editable format.

OOo, LibO, Symphony, Word, Abiword, Koffice and so on are tools for
editing documents and not for keeping viewing *and* printing fidelity.
For such purpose you should use desktop publishing software which has a
complete different approach (i.e. Inkscape).

Also for PDF, embedding fonts is an option. Only for PDF-A it's mandatory.

Should I make my presentations using a PDF?

Yes. By embedding your fonts if you want to be *reasonable* sure that
you will open the file and obtain a similar result in the future.

If you want to be *more sure* export it in PDF-A which is a subset of PDF.

You must be persuaded that there is a trade off. You can't use a
microwave oven to dry your cat.
