BLOG – From winter networking to Christmas music under the moon light
by Marloes Tijssen
Yesterday evening we had our winter networking games night. Cathy Sorbara, co-chair, had prepared some games that got us talking and allowed us to get to know each other.
We started with “2 truths and a dream” where the others had to guess what your dream was. Then we used the year on a coin to take us back in time and tell others what was happening in our career at that time. In groups we came up with new words for a tree [leaf holder, air cleaner], a rainbow [bended light, arc of iridescence], books [future changers, weighty words], a star [skylight, pointy thing], a puppy [personal trainer, walking plush], and a house [starting point, clutter box].
The evening finished with a variation on “Chinese whispers” where you write a sentence, then the next person draws about what you have written and folds away the sentence, then the next person writes a sentence about this picture, etc. This led to “Tonight I went to an AWiSE meeting” becoming “We love Christmas music under the moon light”, which shows the level of creativity we reached and the fact that the seasonal cakes were getting us in a festive mood! All in all an enjoyable evening that allowed us to meet new people and expand our network.
