A remote breaker is a virtual online activity or game that can help remote teams get to know each other better, reduce the feeling of isolation and establish a sense of community by staying connected. Ice breakers can be used in many different settings such as team building, meetings, workshops, conferences, networking events, training sessions, and more.
Whether you're looking for a team building activity to build your team's culture or just want to get to know your coworkers better, we have a variety of fun customizable ice breakers for every occasion - from small groups to large audiences.
The purpose of ice breaker activities is to create a friendly atmosphere for the participants. It is a way to break the ice, hence the name “ice breaker”. You can use ice breakers to learn more about a new team member or kick off important meetings like training sessions, workshops, or team events.
They’re also an excellent opportunity to learn more about the participants, get to know them better and develop deeper relationships - especially in remote settings where “water cooler” conversations don't typically come as naturally as in in-person settings.
A good ice breaker should be fun, easy, interactive, and engaging. It should promote conversation and get the participants talking. If at the end of an ice breaker session your participants have learnt something new about each other, feel more relaxed and comfortable than before joining the activity, you've done a good job!
There are tons of ways to make your virtual meeting more interactive and fun. One way to engage the audience is by starting your meeting with an ice breaker. You can take one of our ready made ice breaker templates and use them as-is or customize them to suit your needs. We also suggest incorporating such interactive features as voting, timer, and commenting.
