Subgroup Leads - get in touch with Mark (mark AT mikons DOT com) before your meeting and let him know how many stickers you need.

At the Meeting

  1. Pick up a sticker patch as you come in
  2. Choose from one of the three choices in each row
  3. Spend 5 minutes asking someone you don't know about a sticker

Tips to get the best experience

  1. Do them in groups of three. Each row has three options like "boxers" or "briefs" or "panties"
  2. Come up with topical options. For example, in an election season, you can, if you dare, make a "donkey" for Democrat, "elephant" for Republican, and a "leaf" for Independent or Green Party.
  3. Colorful and simple is more interesting to people.
  4. Give the set to you guest as they enter the event and encourage them to find others who have the exact set and those who share none in common.
  5. If you are having a customer appreciation corporate event, then make some of your mikons that represent the product they use or the skill set they have. People in your company can make faster, more relevant, and more meaningful connections.

Visual symbols have always been a gateway to connection. It has been going on since the dawn of man with cave painting and petroglyph. MikonMixer Stickers is a fun and unique way to meet, greet, mix, and connect in modern times.
