Ice breaker activities

At Accolade Corporate Events, conference ice breaker activities are our speciality. We know what works. If you were thinking of starting with, ‘Let’s go around the room. Say your name, and something interesting about yourself,’ chuck that idea out of the office window, right now. We can do far better than that.

Ice breaker activities are all about bringing the room together, getting delegates involved, enthusiastic about the day ahead. Do the ice breaker right, and you’re likely to have a really successful conference. Why? Because your room will be filled with motivated, engaged individuals, who have been geared-up from the get-go. They’re ready to contribute to your conference.

We don’t want to claim anything too wild, but ice breakers really are an art. An art that Accolade has perfected. Say ‘no more’ to cringe-worthy, awkward ice breakers. You’ve got this.
