Almond Conference Keynote Speaker Hits the Right Notes

This year’s Almond Conference Gala Dinner keynote speaker, Roy Firestone, was a hit with the 600-plus almond growers, handlers and allied industry members in the audience.

Firestone captured the essence of the California Almond industry with his “Ode to Almonds” and songs highlighting individual industry members. He had the audience laughing with jokes about members of the ABC Board of Directors and staff, and he paid tribute to the men and women in the U.S. military.

Firestone’s heartwarming presentation impressed conference attendees; as one grower stated, “I didn’t know anything about this guy, but he was excellent. He made us laugh, he made us cry, and he made us make fun of ourselves. He was the best entertainer we’ve ever seen at Conference.”

The popular sports interviewer, entertainer and author donated some of the proceeds from the sale of his books and music CD at the conference to the FFA. He was available for book signings and interacted with attendees following his performance.
