In the business life, you will be introduced to many people around you. Being a professional you will be introduced to your seniors or juniors. So in that situation when someone is been introduced to you, your response to it should be genuine, short. It should be very much brief and simple. At the end of the greeting you should repeat the name of the person. Generally doing this serves mainly two purpose of the person you are been to introduced : it shows that you have respect for the person and generally it’s a help that makes you rememberthe person’s name.
Some of the formal examples that you should say as a response are as follows:
“It is so nice to meet you, Mr. Ponting. I look forward to working with you”.
“It is wonderful to meet you Mr. Clark.”
How to Respond when you are been introduced to Business Men
Simply add “Mr.” to their last name. For example if the person name is Gary Smith and he is been introduced to you. Just reply politely as “Its an honor to meet you, Mr. Smith”
How to Respond when you are been introduced to Business Women
Generally you should never address any womenas “Miss” unless she is been introduced to you as “Miss”. You should go with “Ms” if you do not know the marital status of the women. If you incorrectly use “Mrs” generally have a bad impression on the women and offends some women.
Never respond to an initial introduction with a brag as its quite weird for example: on being introduced to Dr. Jenkins you should not reply by saying, “It is nice to meet you – I always wanted to be a doctor.”
Generally short, simple, polite and respectful response will make you eye catcher in the group. It will also create a good impression on the person you are meeting for the first time. So use the words as it sounds respect and praise to somebody.
