This session is all about effective and fun icebreakers and energizers! When participants don’t know each other well, using an icebreaker creates an opportunity for introductions and connections. An effective icebreaker will warm up the conversation in your training class or meeting, reinforce the topic of the session, and ensure that participants enjoy their interaction and the session. They can also be used as energizers during long training sessions or when you need to pull everyone back in.
Ellena will teach us about effective breakers and share some of her favorites.
Please e-mail or bring your favorite icebreaker or energizer to firstname.lastname@example.org or bring it to the session. Afterwards, we will compile them all together for you!
