What are different ways I can write a dialogue where a character is introducing himself to a woman in a professional setting?
I don't want to write explicitly like this,
"Hello Miss Emily, my name is Dr.Alfred Miller, I am the professor of Physics here at the university."
In my novel, my protagonist is a saleswoman in a technology company and she is in the office of professor Alfred Miller. Her company has already sealed the deal with the university about the tech product. She is here to get the details of Professor's requirement. She arrives in the office of professor with a mutual friend they have, Susan. I have written the following dialogue, the next line is when the Prof introduces himself.
“Hey Alfred, good morning.”
“Hey morning Sue, how are you?”
“I am good, thanks, meet my colleague Emily.”
“Hello Emily, ...he introduces himself.”
