Tip #45: Team Slide Content

Tip 45: Team slide content. If you agree with the last tip, next consider the content for your team slide that best helps you move your narrative forward and clinch your argument. Only include what is relevant to achieving that.

We aren't swayed by your mid-level management role, your board position at the zoo, your GPA, or your kids. We do care whether you have the capability to deliver on your plan. Present what you need for proving that.

(For “full disclosure,” you may want to consider adding your other roles, but in smaller font at the bottom and don’t speak to them.)

Overall, team slides are hard – difficult to fit into your narrative without providing pointless or distracting information. The good (?) news is that we learn more about your ability to execute by listening to your pitch than by reading your team slide.
