Making introductions with ease is vital to your success in the workplace. Here are some easy tips on how to introduce people well.
When introducing two people you say the name of the person you want to honor, such as a client/eldest person/guest first and the other person’s name second “Mr. Client I’d like to introduce you to my co-worker Jane Smith, Jane this is Mr. Client.”
What do you do when you start to introduce someone and forget their name? Don’t worry, it happens to everyone. Admit it, apologize, and move on. “I am so sorry, I’ve forgotten your name, can you please remind me?” Waiting for someone else to introduce the person to you, is the oldest trick in the book and it can make the situation more awkward.
Above all, make the introduction, don’t worry if you forget who to introduce to whom or their name, you will be forgiven. Make introductions early to avoid uncomfortable moments and make them often, practice makes perfect.
