Before the meeting date, delegates are briefed to have colourful rubber gloves to hand. Participants join the activity with an online conferencing tool like zoom or Microsoft teams. They are introduced to the activity and embark on a series of body sound exercises guided by a charismatic conductor. Once introduced and warmed up, they put on their colourful washing gloves, or nearest equivalent improvised at home. The conductor then leads them up and out of their seats, stomping, body slapping and vocalising in unison. Energy levels are instantly raised, easing the path for productive communication in the meeting ahead. The activity can be extended to 20 minutes and will end in smiles and peals of laughter with participants enthused connected and ready to focus on the meeting ahead.
