Business card contains first name,surname and position of job if they have to so Business card will give us full information about the person who is the person?what kind of tittle does thos person have to?

Hello Alifaraax,

I'm afraid I don't understand your question. A person's title could refer to their job (Head of Marketing / Chief Financial Officer / Senior Researcher), it could refer to a professional qualification which gives a title (Doctor / Professor), or it could refer to a title granted through a person's position in society (President / Cardinal / Senator).
