YOUR NAME

And headline
Introduce yourself! You'll probably want to use a picture of yourself. You can pull directly from your camera roll, Facebook account, or Instagram collection. (Bonus tip: It doesn't have to be taken by a professional, but it should look professional.)

Your Mission

It's really powerful to articulate your personal mission, especially with a well-chosen visual. If there's a particular career objective you're shooting for, you could note that here.

CURRENT POSITION

Summary of what you do, how long you've been there
You can change the order of these slides, or add more that follow a similar format, to suit your need or mood, but it might be helpful to showcase your current role, summarizing your primary responsibilities and how long you've been part of the team.

You could include a photo of yourself in your work setting, or you could think more metaphorically to illustrate your work.
