- Name. First name is necessary. Last name helps when looking the person up afterward.
- Preoccupation. What he or she does with most of his or her time (usually a career).
- Situation. When and where you met.
As long as you remember those three things, the rest should come back to you. Mention all three in your next exchange together and you can win the person’s respect.
Remember someone and they will work harder to remember you. As I always say: it’s not about who you know, it’s about who knows you.
