EXERCISE 1

Need a quick exercise to spark creativity?
  • Get people to pair up in twos.
  • One person starts telling a journey where he/she leaves your office and travels to a place on the other side of the world:
    “I leave the office, go to the parking, get my car and drive to the airport.”
  • The other person throws in some objects/things/people from time to time:
    • a pink umbrella
    • a crying old lady
    • Johnny Depp
    • an elastic hairband

The storyteller needs to think on his feet to incorporate the items into his narrative.

The crazier the better.

After a while, switch sides (and take revenge!).

This exercise will warm people up, get them to laugh, accept ridicule and failure.
This shouldn’t take longer than 10 minutes.
