Virtual Speed Networking is the perfect way to promote camaraderie and enhance relationships through a fun series of game-type challenges mixed with meaningful discussions. During this time of remote working spaces, this program has two great design options. The first one is the perfect break from traditional virtual meetings for participants who already know each other, as a fun way to enjoy each other’s company, enhance camaraderie, and strengthen bonds. The second option is for newly formed teams or project groups – think orientation, interns, or onboarding – to get to know each other better through engaging conversation and fun team activities!
The excitement begins with a fun group energizer such as Categories or Signature Hunt. Next, individuals will be split into small virtual sub-groups and report to the break-out space with a topic that the client has chosen for discussion, or to compete in an activity. After this quick 5-minute mini-conversation, which has everyone sharing info, the teams will return to the virtual “General Session” space to reconnect with the large group and the host.
Once again, the host will guide the entire group through a totally different interactive game, after which the team is randomly split into brand-new small sub-groups and given an engaging topic to converse about, or an activity to complete, in the virtual break-out space.
This process is repeated in rapid succession with new games and various enlightening discussions taking place time and again!
Four to Six rotations will be completed in only 60 to 90-minutes! This engaging session will have participants smiling and creating fond memories of fun interaction while connecting/reconnecting in a positive and meaningful way.
Our group definitely enjoyed Virtual Speed Networking! Our host Paul was a pleasure and so good with the group. Everyone was happy with the experience.
Our group enjoyed our Virtual Speed Networking event. The discussions were active and engaging and I think people were glad to have attended. The most fun was having the opportunity to build new relationships in a safe way. As a result of these new relationships, attendees expanded their networks which they will be able to leverage for guidance and support in the future. I think your team did a great job, and our host Paul was incredibly responsive and engaged. He was a great host and brought an energy that put attendees at ease. He was incredibly helpful with planning the logistics prior to the event. It would be great to work with him again!
This was a great event! Breakout rooms for the conversations were the most fun. Our team valued the discussions almost more than the games. This Virtual Speed Networking event helped to connect and strengthen the team and promoted conversations that wouldn’t normally occur. Feedback was this was a fun event, and they enjoyed a “break” from business meetings. Paul and Joe were excellent hosts and I felt they really wanted to make this the best experience possible for my team.
The Southeastern students loved your virtual events! Your facilitators delivered a Virtual Speed Networking program and a Virtual Jeoparody game show. Seeing the students get excited about trivia and making connections with other students was awesome. Students told us they loved the event because it was fun, challenging, and gave them an opportunity to make new friends.
Our group most definitely enjoyed their Virtual Speed Networking event. They really liked the word puzzles. Everyone got a chance to participate and got to learn new things about their teammates helped bond our team. The feedback was that they absolutely loved the program and your host/facilitator Roy.
I just wanted to send a quick note of thanks for the great Virtual Speed Networking workshop with the CCBC Student Life leaders. We loved all of the fun challenges you presented and the opportunity to get to know each other. I especially loved that it was a low-pressure way for some of our newer leaders to get acquainted with the group. If the spring semester keeps us limited to more virtual programming, I will definitely be looking at your other programs!!! Thanks again!
