Benefits of team building ice breakers
Ice breakers within a team building context have strong benefits whether you are organising a dedicated team building session or a company meeting. These are:
- removal of any initial tension in the room. When people first arrive at a meeting or team building event, they are often nervous, shy and quiet, particularly if they do not know anyone. Our ice breakers put people at ease immediately. Our facilitators are trained to get everyone relaxed, and use humour and activity to quickly get people to have fun. Smiling faces and lots a laughter are our hallmarks.
- improved interaction and contribution. Our clients constantly tell us that, after one of our team building ice breakers, people interact with each other significantly more. Furthermore, they are often amazed that the quietest, most reticent, attendees suddenly become much more talkative and willing to put forward their ideas and views. As a result, the meeting or event becomes substantially more productive, even if the ice breaker lasts only a few minutes!
- unforgettable memories and a powerful demonstration of what teamwork can achieve. We have many testimonials where our clients have said that our ice breakers were the highlight of their event or meeting, leaving a longstanding impression. In just minutes, our ice breakers demonstrate how the actions of individuals can be combined into an amazing team effort.
The dangers and risks of doing it yourself
It may seem all too easy to search for team building ice breakers on the Internet with a view to running your own ice breaking session. We urge you to consider this carefully. We often hear horror stories of how misjudged ice breakers turned off and even angered attendees at, arguably, the most critical point of their meeting or event. How many times have you attended a meeting and rolled your eyes at the mention of an ice breaker?

Choose from our most popular team building ice breakers
While all the team building ice breakers we deliver are unique, here are some of our most popular generic formats. They can all be tweaked to meet your specific requirements.
Boomwhackers are coloured, plastic musical tubes, which are very easy to store, transport and clear away, even with very large numbers of people. The beauty of boomwhackers is that each colour produces a different note, so that multiple boomwhackers can produce (under the expert guidance of our facilitators) an incredible sound. Most of our clients cannot believe how such small plastic objects can fill a room full of sound. Not only this, your room will also be transformed into a sea of colour. A major benefit of boomwhackers is that they are so easy to play so, in minutes, attendees can be taken on a journey from individual playing to being part of a boomwhacker orchestra. We always end up with a ‘wow’ moment with an uplifting boomwhacker finale!
Clap Happy really shows what can be done with rubber gloves! Rubber gloves are incredibly easy to wear, transport, store and clear away. They can also be used to create a multi-coloured clapping orchestra under the leadership of one of our facilitators. Instead of making sounds with a separate musical instrument, the hands are used. Not only will you be amazed at the sound that can be produced, movement and the use of different colours produces an amazing visual spectacle. As with all our team building ice breakers, we end on a high with an uplifting finale performance so that everyone is in a positive mood to embark on the next stage of your meeting or event.
Haka delivers great surprise. If you are looking for a surprise entrance like no other, then consider our Haka team building ice breaker. Imagine your attendees sitting down and getting comfortable in their seats. Distant chants that can be heard in the distance seem to be getting louder and louder. Then, suddenly, the door opens and imposing Maori warriors enter in authentic dress. Attendees will be treated to an exhilarating Haka performance, which will be enjoyed by everyone. Then, it’s their turn to get up, quickly learn the Haka and perform together as part of their own tribe!
Team singing provides an uplifting experience and quickly gets people ‘out of their shells’. Our team building singing ice breakers prove that everyone can sing. They are led by our highly charismatic vocal coaches who have a track record of running large choirs of amateur singers, including Rock Choir. We offer proven formats and songs for any agenda, but also are very happy to provide bespoke singing ice breakers, for example, using music chosen by you. Under the guidance of our vocal coaches, attendees very quickly go from learning their individual parts into performing as one choir in harmony. Participants are always amazed by the final performance.
Drumming remains one of our most popular activities. We have become expert at managing the logistics of storing, transporting and clearing away drums so it provides an extremely easy ice breaker. Typically, drums will be placed by us on every seat before a meeting or team building event commences. Under the leadership of our charismatic drum facilitator, attendees are quickly taught how to play so they rapidly progress to playing their part in an inspiring drum orchestra. There will be lots of humour and entertainment along the way. You will not fail to be stirred by the emotive finale.
As an alternative to drumming, we also offer our Junk Funk scrap orchestra ice breaker. Here, everyday objects and scrap items become the instruments. You will flabbergasted by the sound that can be achieved from pots and pans, computer keyboards and large storage containers, to name just a few items!
Many of our indoor events are available in ice breaker formats. so you will never be short of ideas.
