Join us for this live workshop event & discover how to recognize and unleash the power of inter-generational wisdom-sharing and collaboration
Wednesday August 21st, 1:30 PM PST
In this interactive session, Chip will share his own transformational story and what it means to “grow whole, not old,” and how to cleverly tap into and leverage the 'Elderly Wisdom' readily available around you and in your own organization, and how that can be transformative to the senior leaders as well as to the organization.
Founder, Modern Elder Academy
Author, Wisdom @ Work
The iconic boutique hotelier who helped Airbnb's founders turn their fast-growing tech start-up into a global hospitality brand, Chip Conley is a New York Times bestselling author whose manifesto on ageism, Wisdom@Work: The Making of a Modern Elder, is inspired by his experience of being both a mentor and an intern in his 50s.
After selling the company he started as a rebel entrepreneur at age 26, Joie de Vivre Hospitality, Chip wasn't sure what was next. He could have retired at age 52. But the young founders of Airbnb came calling. He served as Airbnb’s Head of Global Hospitality and Strategy for four years — while also being CEO Brian Chesky’s mentor — and continues today as a Strategic Advisor to the company’s leadership.While writing Wisdom@Work, Chip was inspired to build the world's first "midlife wisdom school," the Modern Elder Academy, with a 3-acre oceanfront campus in Baja California Sur, Mexico.
Chip is an active mentor to six young CEO founders in the hospitality/tech world, and serves on the boards of the Burning Man Project, Encore. org and the advisory board for the Stanford Center for Longevity. He believes curiosity is the elixir of life and has taken up learning Spanish and surfing at age 58. www.ChipConley.com
