Sure, a name tag is for your name, but if you want to get the most out of it, be sure to also put a title or a headline. And we’re not talking about your job title. In fact, you should say who you are professionally aka your professional brand. Why? A few reasons:

  • Serves as a good ice breaker
  • Helps get a conversation going
