Published on 6 Jul 2016 by David Simpson

We all spend entirely too much of our lives strapped to office chairs, looking at our fitbits wondering how on earth we will reach those 10 000 steps! How about you introduce some movement into your office or conference with a few energiser activities? Not only are they fantastic for your physical health but they double as icebreaker exercises for new teams and large groups. So whether you’re based in Shanghai, Singapore or Hong Kong, get on board with these awesome icebreakers and enjoy the results.

2. Slap your way to success in boom time

It’s the things that make you go BOOM! Get your team moving, laughing and harmonising with colourful plastic tubes that each produce a different note. Boom Time is a little bit like Guitar Hero but each member holds one note and you all have to coordinate the melody. Boom time is perfect to break up a conference; it lasts only 20-30 minutes, works with unlimited numbers of participants, is stimulating, fun and motivational and a great way to unite new teams.

3. Fall over for team building energiser domino effect

How you do this is up to the ingenuity and creativity of you and your team. Domino Effect is incredibly flexible, takes 30-60 minutes, works for teams of 6 to 150 and is fantastic for energising and conference. And the moment your balloon pops is guaranteed to get everyone in the room laughing.

But don't worry, it's still loads of fun. So wave the black and white checked flag and get racing!
