I always carry a nametag, the bigger the better.

Turns out the biggest problem receptionists have is making sure they get my name right. So if we get past that easily, they have some focus to try to help me.

Once I was sitting in a conference room, and the owner of the company comes in, sees the name tag and says, "We have a salesman here!" He was happy to purchase.

Name tag is part of the professional kit.
