This week, we had the privilege of helping out at and attending the first ever Kraft Heinz Global Convention. Over 1,000 leaders from around the world attended the Chicago event, which was a great educational and networking opportunity for us.
Monday’s highlight was the Stop Hunger Now event, where we packaged more than 285,000 meals to send to schools in Uganda. It was incredible to watch Kraft Heinz employees come together for this great cause.
Tuesday and Wednesday we had the chance to attend various Zone, Business Unit and Functional meetings. Teams met to discuss performance of the previous year and to align their goals for the future.
Thursday, every convention participant attended the official Convention Day, in which we heard from the CEO, top executives and board members. A surprise guest was Kraft Heinz Board Member Warren Buffett, who provided a lot of insight into his experiences and philosophies. The day was both fun –– and informative, and we expanded upon our knowledge of Kraft Heinz. The day ended with a celebration where everyone came together to enjoy each other’s company and, of course, eat Kraft Heinz products.
We are extremely honored to have attended the Kraft Heinz Global Convention and are grateful for the opportunity.
