The event is scheduled for December 5, 2019 at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds in Santa Rosa, CA.

Ables will be presenting the session, “5 Principles for Creating a People-Centric Digital Workplace.” The job of the wine industry executive has been increasingly transformed, reshaped and disrupted. Leaders in operations, production, sales and marketing are faced with more challenges than ever. Increased competition, within and outside the industry, retaining top talent, integrating new technologies, all while maintaining growth and profitability, is the new normal.
This action-oriented and inspirational session for wine industry leaders focuses on 5 principles that organizations across many industries—from banking to winemaking to manufacturing to technology—are using to create more people-centric, disruption-proof workplaces. Ables will provide wine industry-based case studies and tips highlighting how successful organizations are aligning better processes, employee empowerment, technology, big data, and culture to transform customer and employee engagement. Attendees will take away specific ideas that separate producers who are succeeding, from those who are not.
Ables said, “The future isn’t about technology. It’s about people—and it’s about how technology will aid businesses in delivering better experiences to customers and employees that result in more loyalty and profit, lower turnover, and more innovation.”
Ables is the author of “The LUCK Principle: Business Results at the Intersection of People & Profit.” In the book he teaches how to harness the power of people, process and technology to transform a business into a digital workplace that balances a people-first culture with bottom-line results. The book is available in both paperback and Kindle versions on Amazon at https://www.Amazon.com/dp/B01N0QW5H4.
