Carson Daly started to wonder recently, does wearing a nametag make you friendlier?
It all started after he had a funny interaction with a woman visiting the studio who happened to be wearing a nametag. When he used her name in conversation, he was blown away by her reaction.
“She just stopped and she was in shock, she was stunned that I knew her name,” he remembers.
The moment was such a nice surprise that Carson was inspired to suggest a little social experiment: Wear a nametag all day, and see what happens.
And so, as The Today Show started The Great Nametag Experiment, they sought out an expert to give me some pointers. Their producer simply googled the word “nametag,” and found yours truly.
We had an awesome time shooting the segment. I especially enjoying critiquing Meena Duerson’s handwriting on her nametag.
Thanks for thinking of me.
