Name Tag Tip

When you attend a networking event, be sure you bring your own name tag. Buy a name tag plastic holder at an office supply store and place your business card in it. Or prepare a name tag in your computer and make it say what you want it to say.

Some events provide blank name tags. Write your name and your business for all to see.

Always place your name tag on the right side of your clothing. That way, as you shake hands, the line of your arm draws the other person’s attention directly to the name tag.

REPEAT: Name tags only help if you wear the name tag on the right side so that your eye will easily travel to it as you make the initial handshake.

When you meet someone new, call them by their name right away. This will assist you in remembering their name.
