Identify Yourself for Success in Business and at Work

by Deb Best:

I recently attended a major nonprofit fundraising event where no name tags were issued, and hundreds of other people in the business community were also in attendance. I was a new sponsor / donor. Fortunately, I connected with a number of people I know in the business community; and for those folks I didn’t know, I had my business card at the ready, and requested their business cards in return.

When I approached the check-out table for the silent auction, I asked why there were no name tags. The young staffer at the table replied: “It’s too much work, especially since we have a lot of last-minute attendees. So we decided a few years ago to stop using name tags.”

Not the right answer.
