Great tip Niiraj..especially with so much networking within BNI, I sure can make use of this! Thanks Ivan, Niiraj.
Great tip I also write or try and rememeber where we met ( which networking event)
Many people struggle with remembering people’s names. As the above comment says, I always write down pertinent info on the back of the business card. It’s also a good idea to phonetically spell out the name if it is a variation of a “regular” spelling, etc. Of course, everyone should be wearing a name badge at any business or networking event,- this helps the people who are “name impaired” 🙂
Ivan. Just thought you should know. I’m a fan and have been following this site. Unfortunately on Google Chrome browser, the code is strange and the text goes over the video, making it very hard to look at.
Cheers and keep up the great work.
Excellent recommendations! I will recommend to my Educational Coordinators to present and forward the message to their members.
This is a fantastic video and an essential part of networking. There is a saying; “They don’t care how much you know, until they know how much you care.” There is nothing that says “I don’t care about you” like forgetting someones name after they have just told you, whether or not it’s intentional. A name is a bridge to valuable relationships. Great post, keep the amazing content coming Dr. Misner!
I leave a leave a response when I especially enjoy a article on a site or I have something to valuable to contribute
to the conversation. Usually it’s triggered by the passion displayed in the article I looked at. And on this post Never Struggle to Remember a Name Again!Business Networking | Dr. Ivan Misner. I was actually excited enough to leave a comment 😉 I actually do have some questions for you if it’s okay.
Could it be just me or do some of the responses come across as
if they are coming from brain dead visitors? :
-P And, if you are writing on other social sites, I’d like to keep up with everything new you have to post. Could you list every one of all your communal sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
