Getting To Know You

Need to break the ice with a new group or enhance bonding in an old one? Getting To Know You delivers rapid-fire entertainment as participants learn useful and interesting facts about each other. It’s an instant relationship booster!

A social scavenger hunt

Getting To Know You breaks down the barriers for new groups who have just come together, and creates laughter and new bonds between those who think they know each other!

Participants work together to complete "challenges" by matching a person with the question, using our custom built smartphone app. Answers are submitted in the forms of fun videos, photos (some of which are incorporated with imagery), and text responses, earning the individual points along the way.

The event is a really flexible team bonding activity. It works great for groups of any size and can fit nicely in between breaks at a conference or meeting, as a way to break the ice at a networking event, or simply as a fun indoor team building exercise. It is an investment of anywhere from one to three hours for a lifetime of improved bonding!

A great way to network

Challenges are quick and easy to complete, sending your group on a person-to-person social scavenger hunt, as they get to know as much about their fellow participants as possible. Challenges are themed around work, travel, skills, hobbies, school, and personal interests, and are guaranteed conversation starters.

When the time is up, your group will have shared a fun experience, which will have a lasting positive impact on their professional relationship. By the time the participants are finished, they will feel like they truly know everyone in the room, and will have learnt even more about those who they may have already known for years!

Event Overview & Features

Getting To Know You is a fantastic conversation starter, and participants will be encouraged to learn more about each other, and build stronger bonds through shared experiences. The common bonds forged can inject energy into any meeting and drive a strong spirit of comradery in the work place.

    Using “smart” phone technology

    Getting To Know You uses our custom-built smartphone application, making it suitable for groups of any size, in any location. From start to finish, everything is automated and completed in real-time, which makes it an exciting, fun and entertaining activity.

    Key benefits:

    • Helps break the ice at any event
    • Forges bonds between individuals
    • Enhances collaboration within any group
    • Brings large groups together quickly
    • Is fun, energizing and entertaining

    You can encourage participants to take part just for the fun of it or to win prizes. Everyone can see the action and entertainment unfold on a live stream and leaderboard, either on their phone, or on any Internet enabled device.

    The challenges are so diverse that your group will have to circulate and recirculate through the room to find the right people. Completing challenges means lots of socializing!
