Hello Todd,

I agree with your point of view, when it is a one-on-one meeting. But if I'm presenting to a group, I'm only sure of the "cool" factor with the person who granted me the meeting. If I don't let everyone else know about my previous successes, they might be thinking, "Who the heck is this guy, and why should I be listening to him?" Hopefully my advocate in the group has succintly and accurately extolled my virtues, but I may have only one opportunity to impress the group. By providing a concise background pitch, everyone in the group thinks I'm cool, and listens to what I have to say.

Thanks for the comment. I know what your saying, as I have been in the same situation. Rather then a slide i tend to do it in oral introduction setting before the "pitch" part of the meeting. It seems more natural as a part of the introduction rather then part of the pitch.
