Use this icebreaker as a fun way of introducing a guest speaker and making that person feel important.
You can download a free instruction sheet on how to run the icebreaker, ‘Be My Guest’ from the link at the bottom of this page, or follow the instructions below.
Preparation – prior to a session where a guest speaker is going to present, create an A4 sheet with several facts about the presenter listed down the page. Then cut each of these facts from the sheet so that you have lots of individual facts on separate slips of paper.
Distribute the slips of paper with facts on amongst the participants and ask them to read the fact and be prepared to mention it when the guest arrives.
Upon the arrival of the guest, explain that they are so well known they probably need no introduction, in fact the audience can probably say a few words about the guest themselves. This is the cue for each of the participants to read their fact out about the guest, who should be suitably impressed…or embarrassed!
This icebreaker serves as a useful method of introducing a guest speaker whilst also preparing the participants for their entry. It works particularly well during Induction training where you are introducing a senior member of the organisation.
