Speed dating in real time
You will want to use a timer and a bell, buzzer, or some kind of sound to notify participants when the two minutes is up, so they don't have to time keep on top of participating in introductions.
Participants should move from person to person until they have met half of the people in the room.
If you have the luxury of chairs scattered around the room, you'll want to ask the people who were numbered one to sit at the table or in a chair.
The number twos then move to the next partner every two minutes.
Speed dating is simply safer and more effective, especially when compared to online dating as there is no substitute for real, human, face-to-face introductions. Many friendships and other connections are borne from our events; it's a great social event where everyone just happens to be single and open to making new relationships - whatever that might lead to.
Write your suggested topics on a note card, a whiteboard or project them on a wall.
You don’t want participants spending their two minutes trying to remember what you suggested they discuss or trying to look at a laptop screen or smartphone screen to remember.
If you want them to meet everyone, switch the position of your ones and twos for the next round of two-minute introductions.
Keep your suggested topics simple as two minutes is not a lot of time for both people to respond.
