Berkeley College and the North Jersey Chamber of Commerce co-sponsored a Think Tank Networking Event, where attendees got the chance to network and participate in team building exercises.  The event, open to the business community, was held at Berkeley College in Woodland Park, NJ.

A think tank is a discussion around a policy and idea, explained LaTysha Gaines, Campus Operating Officer, Berkeley College. “Our exercise involved solving a business issue in these difficult COVID times,” she said.  The group of about 30 worked in small teams to come up with solutions to the issue.  The program took place on Wednesday, August 25, 2021.

Michelle Vernuccio, President, North Jersey Chamber of Commerce, called the event a success.  “I spent time talking with everyone and what I found significant was the way they worked together to implement some tactical ideas,” she said.  “Teamwork and collaboration can get you to the best outcome.” 

Berkeley College celebrates its 90th anniversary in 2021. The theme commemorating this milestone is “Empowering Lives for 90 Years!” Visit the 90th Anniversary webpage for more information.
