This speed meeting icebreaker can work well for groups of co-workers, friends, or club members.
After our meeting I felt a bit tired as you rightly delved into great detail into all of the critical areas necessary for matchmaking. Looking forward to the process and some great dates.
Jim, Wicklow Hugh I was delighted to hear about your matchmaking service.
The icebreaker is also not intimidating because the attendees—and they worry about this and ask if they will have to touch another attendee—are not put off by a quick handshake when they meet their next speed dating companion.
When your participants don’t know each other, ask them to number off by one and two; half of your participants become ones and the second half become twos.
