• Remembering Names

    How can you memorise people’s names?

    At company meetings and conferences you often meet new people. When these people introduce themselves to you, you have to concentrate on their names and try to remember them. At least, this is how it should work. In reality it’s quite a challenge for many people to link all those new faces and their accompanying names together.

    Unfortunately, it often turns out to be so difficult for us that we don’t even try, which is a huge pity because people like to listen to their own names more than anything else. Hearing your name is like music to your ears. It gives people a feeling of validation.

    Good to know, but what can you do when you find it difficult to remember names?  Don’t worry, I’m going to make some suggestions that will make it possible for you to remember a large number of names in a short period of time.

    The Handshake

    You often hear the saying, "A picture is worth a thousand words", and rightly so. Sometimes a visual representation succinctly says more than words ever could. When we meet people, we often use non-verbal visual communication to convey a message. A smile, a frown, and a wink are examples of how we replace words with gestures.
