Remember people's names, once and for all.

Remembering names is important, but sadly, once the introductions are finished, we easily forget them! We simply love hearing our names, so dropping other people’s names in conversation is a great way to keep them engaged and will make them feel you paid attention to them.


Use the following to make names stick:

  1. Say their name immediately.
    Right when they say, “Hi I’m Bob.” repeat it with, “It’s great to meet you, Bob.”

  2. Spell out their name.
    Dr. Gray Small, a memory expert, encourages those who want to remember names to spell them out in their heads.

  3. Associate the name.
    Who else is called Bob? Oh, Bob the builder! You could try associating the person’s name with a famous character or celebrity.
