9 Ways to Spice Up Your Nametags for More Engaging Conversation
Nametags are worn for a variety of jobs and functions, but people don't like to wear them because they're annoying, damage your clothing, clash with your outfit, and eliminate anonymity.
Picture this: you see someone's nametag and decide to strike up a conversation with them:
"Nice to meet you Jimmy, my name is Gary."
Conversations like these don't go anywhere because there's nothing to say once your have introduced yourself.
"So...uh?Jimmy?what brings you to this networking meeting?"
But what if?
What if there was something other than your name to write on your nametag? There is certainly enough room on your three inch by four inch plastic tag to add another word or two! The following is a list of nine creative things to write on your nametag that will empower more interesting and engaging conversations.
