The Napa Summit Experience

What People Are Saying


I’ve always been a fan of the smaller, intimate events and the Napa Summit will serve as a brain trust of sorts, bringing some of the most seasoned and knowledgeable folks in digital marketing together for a sharing of the minds in one of the most beautiful places on earth.


Jim has been knee deep in the thick of digital marketing for corporate America, he knows what works & what doesn’t. He knows how to avoid the fluff, and that’s exactly what I see this Napa Summit becoming. A “no fluff, learn from other experts, amazing opportunity to network” event in a setting that’s hard to compete with. I am so excited to have members of my team there, because they will learn, they will make amazing connections & there will be deals closed. A little hint to people that may not know Jim, he may seem a little intimidating at first because of his sheer size, but feed him pizza & he will give you the shirt off his back! I think Pizza is his kryptonite!

– Matt Siltala, Avalaunch

Ready for Napa!

Napa Summit is easily one of the best wine pairings possible. I’m overjoyed to be invited into this think tank with some of the brightest, data and results-driven marketers in the world. I expect that it will be an action-packed day with everyone sharing their best tips over some of California’s best wines. With Jim and Raj at the helm, you can be sure that this is an event not to be missed.

– Mike King, iPullRank
