You’ve probably seen someone out and thought “hey, I know them” – right before the shock set in that you can’t remember their name. Awkward!
In this week’s Friday from the Field, Jamie Utt discusses the value of our business cards. I know we’re all legends – but be a humble legend by remembering that our offices see so many people every day that we cannot expect them to instantaneously remember us or our organization – even if they do a good job faking it! That’s why Jamie reminds us to always be fast and generous with our business cards.
At Tiller-Hewitt, our rule of thumb is that unless the person shouts your name, before you have time to give them your card, HAND IT OVER! This prevents awkward moments and guarantees their focus is on your message and not on trying to remember your name and organization!
