Remembering Names

Burping during dinner, passing wind in public or
stalling the car at traffic lights can make us blush with

Failing to remember someone’s name is the faux pas
I personally want to avoid – especially when I am
chairing an important meeting or pitching for business
to a room full of strangers.

It’s why I distribute identity sheets containing attendees’
names, job titles and photographs to everyone round
the table.

It not only keeps me out of trouble, it ensures each
person can concentrate on what’s being said instead
of trying to recall the name of someone to whom they
have just been introduced.
