It is said, Two things determine success:
1. What you know; and
2. How well you communicate what you know...
Often the second is more important than the first.

When it comes to handshaking techniques:

Always push your hand in all the way to meet web-to-web, with your fingers together and your palm straight out and thumb up.

Never give a finger tip hold or short handshake, which is commonly just squeezing the other person's hand short of meeting web-to-web.

a good, professional handshake is completed by shaking a woman's hand no differently than a man's hand. There are no longer double standards.
