Do you have any suggestions on how I can improve my introductions?
A: Memory hooks are excellent tools to use when you are introducing yourself to many people at networking events.
For example, many years ago I met a telephone equipment sales rep at a networking meeting.
He said, "The next time you're in someone's office, look at their telephone system.
Consequently, anyone with fat wires has an old, inefficient phone system, and he could offer that person a more cost-effective alternative.
To this day, every time I go into someone's office I look under the secretary's desk to see if the phone system has fat wires!
