All staff meetings and workshops can benefit from icebreakers when done right. An icebreaker aims to warm up the room before starting a meeting, giving participants time to have fun and get to know each other.

Break away from the clichés and find fun, creative group icebreakers that actually make a difference. It is even better if these activities support your company culture and values! Icebreakers for meetings do not have to follow a specific format, nor do they have to be lame and boring. What is important is that these group activities get people talking, smiling, and feeling energised before the meeting.
