As you receive the business card look the person in the eye. This is essential. Receive it with both hands and then look at the card. Do not put it away until you have completed your conversation with the person. If that means keeping it for ten minutes then so be it. If you are sitting at the meeting then place the card in front of you and leave it there for the duration of the meeting. It will help you remember their name and also place a positive impression in their subconscious mind.
Live with passion,
