Clarice Turner, President of Joseph Phelps Vineyards, and Tom Floyd, Head Manager of Effectiveness at Facebook to Keynote Annual SUMMIT

July 27, 2018

NAPA, CA --, the wine industry's leading online job site, is excited to announce that Clarice Turner, President of Joseph Phelps Vineyards, and Tom Floyd, Head Manager of Effectiveness at Facebook will deliver the keynote addresses at the SUMMIT, the forum for HR professionals to connect with their peers and discuss the hiring, retention and training of winery employees.

Encouraging behaviors that facilitate empowerment and mentorship may not necessarily be built into a company’s culture but, through the development of leadership programs, you can ensure that all employees are performing at their best. Inspiring employees to recognize their own strength and potential to be a future leader in the wine industry can be achieved with a well-thought out initiative. Turner will discuss how she implemented these programs in her former positions, as well as at Delicato Family Vineyards. 

When a manager has an issue with an employee, they want an immediate solution. Through innovative preparation, Tom Floyd and his team created a number of ways to provide Facebook’s many managers the tools and resources they need in easy-to-understand and act upon format. Floyd has utilized all the strength of Silicon Valley and employed technology to anticipate and address the needs of managers, working within the largest of corporations or the smallest of family businesses, to coach employees in the moment. SUMMIT is now a full-day conference taking place on September 6, 2018 at the Napa Valley Marriott. The forum sells out quickly – be sure to register early to secure your seat to learn from some of the great HR minds in the industry! A full agenda can be found at
