9:05 am - 9:45 am Building a Unified Learning Culture During Massive Acquisition

Mike Van Lente, Global Senior Director of Learning & Development ,Whole Foods Market
The role of learning in culture is emerging as a company’s competitive edge, yet ask a handful of learning practitioners what their top challenges are, and most will say, “Building a Learning Culture Within a Company!” And each will have a differing opinion about just what a “learning culture” looks like. On top of that, it's one thing to build and implement a learning culture, it’s another to do it in the context of being acquired - especially when the acquirer is none other than Amazon. During this session attendees will hear the Whole Foods story of building a unified strategy where learning is embedded in each moment, where the intention to learn is established in every interaction, every relationship and every chance to lead.
