Robert, the easiest way ->>> export it as JPEG image and pull it to your presentation with the Image Widget. Fine text can become an issue this way. More complicated option - >>> export as HTML Web page and use the Web Page Widget to display in your presentation.

Thanks Darius!

re: Export it as a JPEG suggestion. If the PDF is not image heavy you may want to save it as a PNG or GIF since JPG will compress the images.

Just out of curiosity I ran some tests trying to save JPGE & PNG files from PDF containing vector & text objects only. To my surprise, even @ 300dpi and HQ settings Adobe Acrobat CC (the newest so to say) kinda sux. That online tool, Jordan provided us with the link, performed equally bad. Both of them created terrible jagged edges around text. What worked quite well was Photoshop - much smoother pixel transitions.
