Need an icebreaker that will warm up the group with action and movement? This speed meeting icebreaker will accomplish both of these objectives.
Plus, the speed meeting icebreaker enables your participants to succeed.
Sitting at tables all over the room (or just in two chairs) is preferred, so the murmur of the conversations does not interfere with the participants' ability to hear.
Sometimes, however, your room setup won't allow this.
In a hotel conference room, you may have had the opportunity to set up pairs of chairs away from the training tables.
If you want them to meet everyone, switch the position of your ones and twos for the next round of two-minute introductions.In that case, you then ask participants numbered one to introduce themselves to a two sitting kitty corner from them, and so on until all of the ones and twos have had a chance to meet.If you have the luxury of chairs scattered around the room, you'll want to ask the people who were numbered one to sit at the table or in a chair.Even your shyest or most uncomfortable participant can manage to talk with another person for two minutes.If nothing else they can exchange contact information and tell their partner what they do and what they enjoy.You might suggest topics that are appropriate for the two minutes they are allowed to spend with each person. Participants can tell their partner: Keep your suggested topics simple as two minutes is not a lot of time for both people to respond.
