Remember Names

If you forget someone’s name, don’t get flustered. Be tactful and don’t make a big deal of it. Avoid phrases such as “I’ve forgotten your name.” Instead, say “I’ve just had a momentary lapse and I apologize, but I can’t think of your name.” When the person supplies his name, complete the introductions and move on. Don’t mention it again.

Connect the person’s name with something interesting to help you remember it. Here are some hints to aid memory.
