Welcome: Remember to introduce yourself.
Couple of things I've used as a high energy warm-up lately:
1. Using a whiteboard to design a virtual background that they then upload, e.g.:
2. Networking in self-directed breakouts. Possible in Zoom (maybe other platforms?) but not Teams. Set up manual breakouts with the option for participants to choose their room. Set them up before people arrive to your session. Once you get a handful arriving, ask them to "go network" for a few minutes, pointing out they can switch rooms. As further people arrive, send them off to go and find their colleagues. Think of some relevant / fun names for the rooms.
I'm sure you can add to and build on these ideas so do share!
