We kicked off the 2019-2020 NACD Colorado with a program at the beautiful Molson Coors headquarters hosted by Mark Hunter, CEO of Molson Coors and David Coors, president, AC Golden Brewing. The session was moderated by Teresa Van De Bogart, who recently retired from Molson Coors.
We learned about:
Innovation and disruption in the beer business
The power of the Molson Coors culture
The generational perspective in the beer business, and
Molson Coors' passion for corporate responsibility.
And, of course, sampled some amazing beers.
