Games people play so they can network

For some, networking is almost as terrifying as public speaking. At the next conference or large meeting you organize, remove fears by giving people an excuse to play these meet & greet games:

Speed dating–style networking. (This game works particularly well for large organizations with multiple offices.) Ask attendees to list three or four other people they want to meet face to face at the next organizationwide gathering. Then, match the responses, set up meeting spots and give each person a schedule for three or four “dates.”

Texas hold-’em networking. (Use this icebreaker at a large meeting, where attendees don’t know one another.) Place a stack of playing cards at the entry, so each attendee can take one. During a meeting break, tell attendees to find others who can help them create a winning poker hand.
