Tips and Techniques for Group Introductions, Room Warmers, and Getting Acquainted

Are you tired of using the same old icebreakers and room warmers when you bring a group together, when you facilitate a meeting, a retreat, an event, a training? Are you open to learning and sharing new ideas? Are you willing to have fun and learn at the same time?

Lauren Berning is an accomplished improvisational artist and group facilitator. Bring those two skills together and you have someone who knows how to work a room, engage people, create fun for herself and participants, AND accomplish the goal of helping people get to know each other, relax and create the atmosphere for what lies ahead.

During this clinic you will gain new skills and enhance your own repertoire. Lauren’s activities include:
  • Learning new methods for warming up a group
  • Discovering what works, what doesn't and why
  • Exploring how to get people engaged
  • Practicing how to get people to play
  • Addressing challenges
  • Playing games and have fun!
