Commit Their Name To Memory And Use It
People like when their names are remembered. To do so more easily:
  • Repeat the name throughout your conversation. You're more likely to remember it if you say it yourself.
  • End your conversation with their name in the same way as you started to ensure it sticks with you.
  • Remeber how nice it is when someone you've just met calls you by your name.

IDEAS

Be aware of the way you speak
  • Speak clearly and with an even tone. Not too loud or too quiet, as you could come across as dominating or shy.
  • Using filler words such as ‘um’ or ‘so’ or filling in gaps with ‘like’ or ‘you know’ will make you seem less knowledgeable. Pay special attention to your usage of the word ‘like’.
  • If you need time to compose your thoughts, simply pause, or restate the question.
