Participants exchange names and contact information during the two minutes so that they can connect with the people who appealed to them following the speed dating session.
It's an efficient way for people who are interested in finding a special someone to meet a large number of people quickly in a safe environment.
You might suggest topics that are appropriate for the two minutes they are allowed to spend with each person. Participants can tell their partner: Keep your suggested topics simple as two minutes is not a lot of time for both people to respond.
Write your suggested topics on a note card, a blackboard or a whiteboard or project them.
If nothing else they can exchange contact information and tell their partner what they do and what they enjoy.
