5 icebreakers for your meeting

27 October 2015


A successful meeting starts with a pleasant atmosphere, and this can be created by any of the following icebreaking exercises:

1. 10 things in common

Divide the participants into groups of four of five. Each group must come up with 10 things that everyone in the group has in common. Appoint a note-taker, who reports back to the meeting after 10-15 minutes.

2. One word icebreaker

Form the participants into groups then each group discusses an issue, and must come up with one word that defines the issue. Example issues include the business culture, the nature of your chief product, or the challenges facing your business. jdjdj

3. Question icebreakers

Laughter is guaranteed to raise the mood of a meeting. One of the best ways to encourage humour is by asking questions such as:
  • If you were a vegetable, what type would you be?
  • Which celebrity or historical person would you like at your dinner party and why?
  • Which three items would you like to have if stranded alone on a desert island?

4. Object icebreakers

Give a small everyday object to each participant and ask them to name three unusual uses for the object.

5. Guess who?

On paper slips, everyone writes two things about themselves that are not common knowledge. The slips are then mixed up and handed out randomly. Participants then read out their slips, and everyone guesses who the author is. For an ideal venue for a productive meeting, try one of our Hallmark Hotels.
