One of the biggest challenges conference organisers face is constantly coming up with new ice breaker ideas to put forward to their clients or directors. Getting a conference or meeting off to a flying start is crucial, to maximise engagement levels for the rest of the day and to clearly set out company objectives.
If you have invested time, money and effort into amassing hundreds or even thousands of your workforce into one room, we believe you deserve to feel or see results within the first few minutes.
Finding the right kind of ice breaker becomes more challenging the larger the group. We believe that we are world leaders in ice breakers for large groups. We have taken some of our most successful team building activities and adapted them to be delivered to large groups, in one room and in a short time slot.
Added to this is the benefit that equipment levels and set-up for each of our ice breaker activities are kept to an absolute minimum so that they effortlessly slot into any agenda.
The cherry on the top of all of this is that delegates simply have a fantastic time! What could be better than seeing your company working and succeeding together first thing in the morning?
So often, I’ve personally witnessed the tired stand-up, sit-down heads-and-tails game or the old ‘share something about yourself that no-one else knows with the person sitting next to you’ routine!
We offer you a great choice of ice breakers that are very different, and optimised for large groups of people. After your delegates have stepped up to any of our unique challenges, they will definitely be more alert and have had the chance of seeing their colleagues in a new light.
Our most popular ice breakers for large groups include:
- Human Beatbox
- One Voice team singing
- Gumboot dancing
- Harmonica workshops
Each one of these have been tried and tested all over the UK and across the world. They are all designed to be entertaining, imaginative, challenging and enlightening.
We are used to delivering ice breaker activities across the world with minimal fuss. For example, in the case of drumming, we send the drums direct from the factory to the venue and each delegate leaves with their own drum to keep forever!
As I have often said in previous articles, your choice of ice breaker is not as important as who you choose to lead it. There is a world of difference from successfully facilitating small group activities to standing on stage, commanding a huge audience, in front of glaring lights and film crews.
The facilitators and performers in front of all your delegates have to possess the stage skills and presence to pull it off. The ability to capture a room and keep delegates totally focused takes years of experience. Therefore, we recommend you don’t leave that to chance.
With over 20 years of experience of delivering ice breakers to large groups, which sometime number into the thousands, we know what works and what doesn’t, to give you the best results.
So, please let us kick off your next large conference or meeting and just see the difference in the feedback that it achieves.
