MILLBURN, NJ – On an early Tuesday morning, business owners, entrepreneurs and nonprofit managers gathered at Charlie Brown’s Fresh Grill in downtown Millburn to make connections, strengthen relationships and do some business.

The chamber led event brought together over 30 business leaders in the Millburn/Short Hills community to engage in a ‘meet and greet’ and in a meaningful, interactive way. Ralph Tarnofsky, owner of Professional Audio Consultants of Millburn and a chamber board member, mustered business owners by tables, asking each of them to provide a two-minute response to those sitting with them.

“What can we do to help you grow your business? What do you want everyone to know about your business?” Tarnofsky asked.

Participants were specific in their responses. Some architects wanted relationships with realtors, others wanted to partner up with complementary businesses and one business owner wanted to be the “go to guy” for services in his industry. Several new members, who recently started a business or project, wanted advice on how to do business in Millburn.

The activity-based networking was a departure from the traditional gathering over coffee in that it encouraged conversation, without the discomfort associated with new introductions.

“We wanted to try something different. Something that would break-the-ice and provide a real meaningful way to interact with one another”, said Roxanne Giacalone, Executive Director of the Millburn/Short Hills Chamber of Commerce.

The networking was so successful that future breakfast forums will include the new format.
