The corporate week marks the beginning of the fall cycle at Berger and aims to present, explain and provide the strategic elements and tools for the coming year that will allow you to build your departmental business plan. This event is also an opportunity to strengthen your ties with the managers of all sites.

This year, the context forces us to reinvent ourselves through a virtual concept. But since we have a lot of ideas, the updated formula relies on a balance between theory, practice and sharing with your colleagues. The planning has been done in such a way as to integrate interactive workshops and active breaks every day.
Just like our live event, you will benefit from a live translation. You must loging carefully to each Teams link on appropriate time to benefit from the translation.

 

Lunch and Evening Activities with Dîner

To create a unifying event despite the distance, Berger offers you a $150 prepaid card to cover the cost of meals during the week.

With this budget, please allow at least:

  • Drink(s) of your choice and snacks for the cocktail reception on Tuesday, September 15;
  • Drink(s) and three (3) course meal of your choice for the banquet on Wednesday, September 16.

Due to the different time zones that apply to the teams at the respective sites, please note that no breaks have been scheduled for lunches and therefore, lunch time is at your discretion. However, the schedule has been organized to allow you to eat during the informative presentations.
