Team bio slides in presentation often resemble a C.V.: lots of information, lots of buzzwords, lots of academic degrees from 30 years ago. All team bio slides look the same.

At a cocktail party, people use a different approach to introducing someone. Out comes a very quick, personal, and memorable description of a person. Every cocktail party introduction is different.

Try designing your team bio slide more like a cocktail party introduction, and less like a C.V. page.

Actually, add the full detail of the C.V. in font 10 as backup reading material at the end of your presentation, for reading, not presenting.
