the gbs team
Global Beverage Solutions (Pty) Ltd was founded in early 2002 by Ian Jones, after he identified the need for a specialised HR resource to service the learning development and human resources needs for the brewing, spirits and beverages industry.
The business has grown over the years to be now positioned as one of the most sought after learning and development consultancies in the beverage industry and we pride ourselves in being perfectly positioned to provide you with the complete solution for your technical beverage human resource development requirements.
The business is now run by Clive Belcher, who joined the business in April 2005, after spending 15 years in the manufacturing industry with Unilever and SABMiller, the last six of which were spent at South African Breweries in Johannesburg.
He holds a Chemical Engineering degree from University of Natal in Durban, and has worked across the globe in many different breweries and organisations. He is also a certified Six Sigma Black Belt.
Clive recently took over the management of training and development for the Institute of Brewing and Distilling Africa Section and is the Convention Chairman for the IBD Africa Section Convention to be held in Cape Town in March 2017, after successfully organising the 2015 Convention in Mozambique.
GBS employs a team of dedicated consultants, who are specialists in their fields and who have many years of experience in the beverage industry, to conduct learning and development in your facility or as part of the online learning and development platform.
All the consultants are accredited trainers with the Institute of Brewing and Distilling and provide learning and development on their behalf in countries around Africa, Europe and Australasia.
