Learn how to introduce yourself in different situations

When you’re doing business with people in Australia, there are a few important things to know before you get started.

  • Always introduce people by their position or level in the organisation, not by age or gender.
  • Always smile and maintain eye contact.
  • Touch elbows or shake the person’s hand using a firm (not painful) handshake.
  • Treat everyone equally and respectfully.
  • Present yourself professionally by using your full name.

Introductions

In most business environments, you can say:

Host: ” Hello it’s nice to meet you.”
Client: “It’s nice to meet you, too.”

In more formal settings, you can say:
Host: “Mr/Mrs XXXX, it’s a pleasure to meet you.”
Client: “Thank you. It’s a pleasure to meet you, too.”

  • In more casual settings, you can say:
  • Host: “Hi (First Name), nice to meet you.”
  • Client: “Good to meet you, too.”
