Anheuser-Busch (AB), the makers of Budweiser, Stella Artois, and Bon Viv, have around 15,000 employees in North America. If this wasn’t challenging enough for a learning leader, the L&D team also provide required training to their extended network of wholesalers and their respective employees. 

With this mammoth task at their feet, learning leaders at AB have enabled a highly successful corporate transformation and pivoted to be more agile, resilient, and prepared for the future.

They have achieved this learning transformation through bettering learner communication and training; their reskilling and upskilling strategy; a focus on worker flexibility and wellbeing; and enabling corporate trust and accountability – all encompassed in their learning strategy.

Through this panel discussion, speakers will cover the challenges that Anheuser-Busch have faced and share best practices on how to shift learning processes and operations, with or without an LMS.
