Berkeley Vincent is the European Marketing Director for Johnson & Johnson and has been at the company for seven years. (Position has changed - will find it later)
Berkeley has previously travelled to South Africa and Uganda but felt that he had only really 'scratched the surface' of these cultures. "Travelling never really equates to living. At best it is a snapshot. I wanted to spend longer, actually living and working in a country to truly appreciate the needs and culture of the people and enable me to make the greatest impact." Berkeley undertook a 12 month placement at the HIV/AIDS Alliance in Zambia, which supports community based organisations in preventing HIV and mitigating the impact of AIDS. During his placement he worked alongside his Zambian colleagues Lillian Byers, Programmes Director and Sue Clay, Regional Co-ordinator for Stigma Reduction, implemented field programmes and gained a greater understanding of the issues on the ground. Before the trip he said, "I am hoping to provide management consultant style support to the organisational challenges they face this year, as they recruit a new Country Director and take steps to become an independent organisation Berkeley had never considered a career in the NGO sector, but had always felt that he would like to gain a greater understanding of the health sector - to understand health delivery from the southern context as well as from the north. He explains that one of the main reasons for taking part in the Pepal programme was that he "would like to have the opportunity to make a change in an informed way." He adds "I am already setting goals for myself when I return. Berkeley summarises the time he has spent in Zambia and at the training course at INSEAD by saying.

Securing Zambia's Future - News & Events - pepal organisation

wrote Berkeley Vincent, Pepal participant, in his blog.
Berkeley Vincent took a year-long secondment from Janssen-Cillag to join the Pepal programme and work in Lusaka, Zambia at Alliance Zambia. As a result of this collaboration, Zambia - a country with over 15% of adults infected with HIV - held its first ever national HIV/AIDS Prevention Convention in November 2009. Prior to Berkeley's arrival, Alliance Zambia had only considered publicising a new study on the modes of HIV transmission, however Berkeley, with his background in pharmaceutical marketing and experience of large scale management and delivery of scientific congresses, was able help them enlarge upon the vision. Together, Alliance Zambia and Berkeley played a pivotal organisational role in delivering the Prevention Convention. Berkeley said, "whilst working within the government structures was unquestionably the best way to maximise political buy-in and increase chances of meaningful policy change following the Convention, it did present many logistical challenges.' Despite having to co-ordinate between over 25 different organisations representing each of the six key themes of prevention and to secure the attendance of important individuals, Alliance Zambia and Berkeley were able to put together and deliver a proposal, which was accepted by the Government. 'Over 250 delegates came for three days to listen and debate as more than 40 international and national experts presented the latest evidence on the Zambian epidemic and how best we might try to stem the flow of new infections. We were honoured that the President himself opened the meeting - I even managed to have a little bit of a 'West Wing moment' as a few of my lines sneaked their way into his speech', continued Berkeley in his blog. Breakthrough during the Convention came when the President publically raised the issue of male circumcision and condom use that had not been openly advocated by his administration until this point. 'Make no mistake,' says Berkeley, 'this country faces huge challenges in turning round some fundamental beliefs and behaviours that continue to put large portions of its population at risk.
