Food For Thought: Collaborate

Hudson Eats

For the September
Food for Thought series, we were back in person in Hudson Eats to discuss relationships with coworkers, and communication in the workplace.

On Thursday, September 30 at 5:30 PM guest speaker and communication expert Caitlin Harper, founder of communication consultancy Commcoterie, and Jen Jamula, Founder of GoldJAM Creative, discussed how to best communicate and collaborate effectively to strengthen your relationships and succeed.


The year 2020 was like no other, and we found ourselves pressing pause, pivoting, disconnecting, and disengaging. We spent time focused inward on our physical and mental health. Moving forward in 2021, we are coming up for air, and figuring out how we press play on our lives. The Food for Thought series continues in 2021 with its pursuit of three goals – to restart, revive, and reconnect.

The Food for Thought series features influential voices from various fields and the public is invited to directly engage in the conversation by submitting a question anonymously in advance of the event.
