Ice-Breaker Questions

Here are a few ice breaker questions you can use in any virtual or face to face class

• If you could choose your age forever, what age would you choose and why? (Discussions about the types of experiences people have at different ages can be valuable, especially in an industry like marketing.)

• If you could meet any historical figure, who would you choose and why?

• What item that you don't have already, would you most like to own? This is another ice breaker question that can be valuable in either product development or product design.)

• If you could choose one hobby that now seems out of your reach either financially or time-wise, what hobby would you take up and why? (This ice breaker question can lead to a productive conversation about the types of things valued by different demographics.)

• Think of one word that describes X (whatever topic is at hand) and share it with the group. (For example, in a session about change management, ask your participants, what is the one word they first thought of when they thought of the word, change? Responses will range from chaos to confusion to cool.)
