In business, it is essential to make a good first impression and therefore it is valuable to practice and feel confident with your formal greeting.
When you first meet a client or colleague, smile and make eye contact. Offer your hand and make sure that your handshake is strong, but not overpowering. Say “Good morning (or afternoon) Mr. (or Mrs/Ms.) Family Name. Nice to meet you “. Introduce yourself if the person does not know your name by saying, “My name is Bob (first name) Smith (family name).”
Role-playing this type of introduction or greeting will help you feel more comfortable and make a good first impression.
