Virtual Icebreakers are definitely one of the best activities when comes to build team rapport and drive engagement.  It will help all the attendees to connect with each other through the game, break communication barriers, get discussions going and also lighten the mood.  The ice breakers can be a great starting point for the virtual meeting especially when you have people joining from all over the world that aren’t able to meet in person. When choosing this activity as an organiser you need to ask yourself a question, what are your goals and what ”ice” you want to break? Remember that icebreaker will be only successful if everyone feels able to take part in it & they are comfortable with it. Introducing & incorporating some of the icebreaker activities will definitely improve and enhance the performance of the overall event.

 

Gamification

Gamification is also a perfect way to add an element to provide your guests with the motivating fun of instant gratification. This simple process allows your attendees to receive points for completed challenges. Real-time updates and syncing will ensure that they see their progress on the leader board. The series of challenges for your team will increase overall interaction and upgrade event experience. This can be very simply done by using gamification techniques that are available through most of the virtual event platforms available on the market. You can also host online games for the team as a part of your events like virtual quiz or karaoke. Again, this will bring your team together & add a competition element.
