The next person repeats what the first person says, and adds something, e.g., "I am going to [our event0, and I am going to bring enthusiasm and [my best tie]." The next person: "I am going to [our event], and I am going to bring enthusiasm, my best tie, and 30 copies of [our annual report]." Etc. around the circle, once or several times.
