Introductory name game for participants to continue getting to know each other

Description of the tool

Participants stand in a circle facing inside the circle and introduce the person to their right, then themselves, then the person to their left. Then the last person introduced does the same, this continues until all participants have introduced themselves and the people at each side of them.


  • If the facilitator starts and also assists in making sure participants feel comfortable with the exercise and the activity moves on at a brisk pace. The bigger the group the longer the time is required.
