Final Remarks – We control our first impressions so remember to do the self-check: smile genuinely, give a good hand squeeze, and say “It is a pleasure to meet you.”
Opening Lines – Speak in a manner that is clear, crisp and relaxed, and practice using “It is a pleasure to meet you.”
Body Language – Making a good impression means making someone feel positively toward you and a lot of that is governed by our body language.
