Goodbye cocktail party

Group exercise, icebreaker
Required materials: 
Glasses of water, one per participant, low key music (optional).

This is a light and fun closing exercise that give participants an opportunity to express their appreciation for each member of the workshop group.

Key explanation points44:

  • Give everyone a glass of water and have them circulate among each other and tell each person in the group what they appreciate about them.
  • Every participant should have a chance to speak to every other participant.

Facilitation notes:

This is a simple but very warm way of giving each participant an opportunity to thank the others for the gift of their presence and for their support.
