As hard as we try, it is sometimes difficult to remember names after introductions. It is even more difficult to remember names when introductions have been made in a group setting.
If you are the person who made the introductions or you know everyone in the group, help others by using names in your conversation.
For example: “Joe, Becky is also a graduate of the University of Dayton.” “Next month, Emily and Brad will be traveling to Hawaii for their honeymoon.” “John, please tell Brian about your experience volunteering for Habit For Humanity.”
Hearing the names reinforces our memory. People also love to hear their names spoken so you will be making positive connections as well.
