Formula for the Perfect Introduction
Has this ever happened to you? You are at a social event and when it is time to introduce two people that you want to make a positive impression on, you freeze?
Just remember this formula for the perfect introduction:
Always address the person of greater authority or eldest person.
A client is always considered more important than a colleague or the boss.
Always use first and last names when introducing others and/or yourself.
Say: Name of Greater Authority or eldest person…
May I present… (or)
May I introduce… (or)
May I introduce to you…
Name of Lesser Authority or youngest person…
And voila! Everyone is introduced and engaged in conversation and you have made a lasting impression.
