It seems funny to be writing about breaking-the-ice in Bahrain where the temperature is currently around 45 degrees. But that is just what my colleague, Phil England, has been doing in the Gulf state. Phil is running a team building programme for the Bahrain Petroleum Company and he has just used simple ice breaker games to break the ice and get people engaged and listening. As well as learning names, and making people feel more comfortable, Phil said, "ice breakers have no boundaries, they work across all cultures, introducing people to each other and helping people feel relaxed and ready for the next element of the day."
Avid fell runner and mountaineer, Phil said he still managed to find time to go for a run in the sweltering heat "though I thought I might melt!"

Here's some news from our sister company Eventus Training & Events who are just returning from an exciting trip to Paris where they have just completed a conference icebreaker...
Well I just heard back from our team in Paris and their event went very well for all 750 people taking part. It is the largest event we have done for a long time. The Great International Marble Run Challenge is perfect for large groups and international teams whether they be large conference energizers or much smaller affairs. Ably assisted by our French office we supplied a Franco-British team of English and French speakers to assist the delegates. 120 teams took part in an event that went around the world to 120 international cities in 30 different countries. It was great fun and a brilliant day.
The only down side to running events for large groups is the clearing away afterwards! You can't expect the delegates to do it or can you? It took the Eventus team 3 hours just to clear and take down the equipment. Anyway they're on their merry way back to the Channel now, just hope they don't get caught in the snow predicted for the South East More live conference energiser or ice breaker team games can be found at Eventus.co.uk/conference-energiser.asp
