While at McKinsey I spent a lot of time interviewing candidates. The main challenge in a first interview was to cut through the woolly CV language and build a picture of the real person in front of me. Strategic problem solvers, team workers, risk seekers, people persons, big picture people, all these expressions do not mean much since they have been used too many times on CVs.

When designing a slide about your team, it is better to replace the CV language with the actual evidence and cut it down to something that is truly unique about yourself.
