Your opinion matters.
What say you?

Global business, a 'megatrend', has better enabled development of diverse people & economies worldwide resulting in the rise of a global middle class, continuous development of a pool of global talent for 'smart companies', keen awareness of the need to develop a 'global mindset' inside local orgs.

Yes, imbalances have been created so let's get it done because no one should be left behind... develop and implement worker retraining, compensation for the displaced.

Let's continue a dialog. It's good business.


CHECK-IN opens... meet & greet


Moderator asks the participants to briefly self-intro explaining their perspective on the industry via their business role and perhaps a comment on something currently important. This process generates interesting conversation while allowing delegates to get-to-know who's in the room.

John Koelling, FSA, is Director of Total Rewards for Ball Corporation and is responsible for employee compensation and benefits programs offered around the world. John is an actuary and began his career holding various actuarial and finance roles in the insurance industry. Throughout time, John found himself more compelled by the broader benefits programs utilized by employers and the associated strategies for offering such programs. To focus more on this type of work, John left the insurance industry and became a benefits consultant to large employers. It was during this time that John became acquainted with Ball, as one of their lead consultants and actuaries. After a few years of getting to know the leadership team and company culture at Ball, John followed his heart, left consulting for employment at Ball, and has now been with the company since early 2011. Upon joining Ball, his first role was Director of Benefits, where he formally oversaw all North American retirement, savings and health and welfare benefits for Ball Corporation. In this role, he was also the strategic consultant for benefits offered in Ball’s international subsidiaries, focused especially in countries where Ball was quickly expanding. In late 2014, John was asked to expand his scope and take on Total Rewards, which added oversight of salary and incentive compensation to his purview.

Amy D Creech, CCP, GRP, is Director of Compensation & Global Mobility at Ball Corporation, a position she has held since 2011. She is responsible for development of the Ball’s compensation and global mobility program strategy and objectives. Amy also participates in merger and acquisition activities, including performing due diligence and integration planning for total rewards and mobility programs. Amy possesses over 20 years of experience in global compensation and as she has gained greater experience and expertise has added global mobility to her set of skills. Prior to joining Ball, she led the international compensation function for Mary Kay Inc. for 15 years and served on the Board of Directors for the North Texas Compensation Association and the HR Southwest Conference, a regional conference for human resources professionals. Amy received her Associate’s Degree in Business Management at the University of Maryland in Munich, Germany and a Bachelor’s Degree in Human Resources Management at the University of North Texas in Denton. She has earned the CCP and GRP certifications from WorldatWork, and the Global Benefits Management certification and the BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India, China) Benefits and Compensation Management certification from the International Foundation of Employee Benefit Plans. Amy is originally from Fort Worth, Texas and has lived in various locations in the U.S. as well as in Iran and Germany. Since childhood she has traveled extensively throughout Europe, Asia and parts of the Middle East, giving her a true global perspective and sensitivity to business climates and cultures.

For Molson Coors, Kris Cannode is responsible for the day-to-day management of the company's long term incentive compensation plans; including processing award transactions, reconciliations, participant inquiries, and global equity tax compliance. In his current role as Sr. Compensation Analyst, Kris continues to manage the company's longterm incentive compensation plans in addition to supporting global functions for compensation related activities.
