Thread Name: Trouble remembering names?
Subject: RE: Trouble remembering names?
Little boardroom trick that works well for me. Whenever I have to attend some sort of a meeting with people at a company, I have a small piece of paper in front of me, and I draw a quick chart of the seats around the table. As people enter and are introduced to me, I quickly write their names on the chart and where they are sitting. (I keep the paper obscured by my attache case.) This way I can refer to each and every one of them by name during the meeting and it builds better rapport with them, then saying "sorry what was your name again?".
