THE PROPER PRESENTATION OF
THE BUSINESS CARD
We give and receive business cards on a daily basis. Have you ever wondered if there are specific etiquette rules on the giving and receiving of a business card? Absolutely there is!
Watch the next time you are in a group of business people and watch how cards are given out and then pay attention to how they are received.
First of all, the proper presentation of your business card is to present your card with your information facing the person you are giving it to. Look that person directly in the eye as you present your card.
Accordingly, when receiving a business card do not simply grab it and put it into your pocket, purse or brief case. Take a minute to READ the card and try and make a comment to the person who gives you the card.
Not only will making a comment make receiving the card a bit more personal, most likely YOU will remember them.
I learned this years ago from a very wise business person and wanted to PASS IT ALONG! Have a great day!
