Practice saying your name and company in the mirror.
Prepare a statement that describes your business that is 15 seconds or less – keep it unique and memorable.
Write your nametag legibly; if your handwriting is not attractive, ask the registration volunteers to do it. Put your first and last name and your company name.
If your company does not provide nametags, consider having a professional one made. You can get nametags at any local engraving or awards shop for a nominal fee.
Put a keyword at the top of your nametag that describes your business (i.e. Accountant). This works especially well if your company name has initials. (i.e. GMA; Association)
Your nametag should always be placed on your right so that when shaking hands, the nametag is in the sight line.
Bring your business cards! For ladies, wear something with pockets so you don’t have to dig through your purse.
Practice your handshake with a friend so you are comfortable with your grip.
When you are introduced to someone, repeat their name to increase your chance of remembering. Then introduce that person to someone you know.
When you receive a business card, write on the back the date and place you met to help jog your memory when filing or searching through your stack of cards.
Bring a pen with you!
