Question That's Never Been Answered: Deal Experience

Perhaps it's because this falls under the category of "why would I want to help my competition" but every single time that this question has been asked, no one has ever given a clear answer on it, I have some idea of how I'd do this in an interview, it's just that I don't have any accessible mentors or trustworthy people to ask this of.

How do I walk through my deals when none of them have closed and they are all early stage pitches/pitches that have not made it into the RFP or "live-deal" part of the process?

One of my deals listed on my resume is a buy-side (phrased as a "potential buy side" that closed recently (not by my bank) but we never got signed on by any of the clients we were pitching and I really have no idea how to elaborate well/BS it when the interviewer will ask me, I just feel frustrated and confused. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
