business and technical english
When the following phrase is used? 'This is Ken'
► Answering the telephone ► Introducing yourself in person ► Asking who is on the line ► Introducing yourself in general
I would use "This is Ken" only if I were not face to face with someone. If someone is talking on the phone then hands the phone to me, I might say "This is Ken." If I am trying to establish identity on the phone, if there is, for some reason, some confusion, I would say "This is Ken" to help clarify.
In person, when I introduce myself, I would say "My name is Ken" or "I'm Ken" followed by other pleasantries appropriate to the context: "Please have a seat", "It's nice to (finally) meet you", "Won't you please come in?", etc.
I hope this helps you.
