Default ETIQUETTE FOR LIFE.GOOD MANNERS FOR ALL OCCASIONS AND AGES.RESPECTFUL KIDS.

Establishing a positive presence begins with your introduction. Whether you are introducing yourself to another, or introducing two people to each other, it is important to do so in a correct manner.
Always stand when making an introduction. When you are seated and someone approaches to greet you, make the effort to stand. It is appropriate to do so whether you are a man or a woman. By doing this, you are demonstrating respect for yourself and for the other person.

Always make eye contact during an introduction. Many people tend to underestimate the value of this simple rule, although it is one of the most important. When you make eye contact you are projecting a confident image.
Always shake the other person's hand. It is appropriate to shake the other person's hand at the beginning and at the end of a meeting. When giving a handshake, it should be with your right hand, and it should be a firm, full handshake. This goes for women as well as men. Fingertip handshakes will not do in a business setting. Remember not to grip too tight, and only maintain the handshake as long as the introduction itself.

There should be nothing but space between you and the person with whom you are shaking hands. For example, if you are sitting at a desk or at a table, it is up to you to come out from behind the table or desk to shake the other person's hand.
Should a man wait for a woman to initiate a handshake? Not in a business setting. We always tell people that there is no preferential gender in the business arena. Therefore, it is appropriate for either party to initiate the handshake.

Always smile during an introduction. By smiling, you are giving a signal of acceptance, and you are showing that you are interested in what the other person has to say.
Always say your name during an introduction. If you are meeting someone for the first time, it is obvious that you would give your name. Even if you might have met the other person at a previous time, he or she could have forgotten your name. This will help the other person immensely.

What if you find yourself in a situation where you have simply forgotten the other person's name? Initiate a handshake and reintroduce yourself. When doing this, you will usually prompt the other person to do the same. However, if the other person does not take your cue, it is OK to simply apologize and let the person know that you cannot remember her or his name.
Introductions are how you make yourself known to others. Each time you introduce yourself, you are sh
By remembering these tips, you should feel much more confident in your introductions. It is confidence that gives us the ability to carry out a proper and memorable introduction.
aring who you are.
