    Rebel hospitality entrepreneur and New York Times bestselling author, Chip Conley has disrupted his favourite industry… twice. At age 26, he founded Joie de Vivre Hospitality, transforming an inner-city motel into the second largest boutique hotel brand in America. He sold out after 24 years, and soon the young founders of Airbnb asked him to help transform their promising tech start-up into the world’s leading hospitality brand.

    As Airbnb’s Head of Global Hospitality and Strategy, Chip was the grey-haired executive who was twice the age of others in the company. His colleagues playfully referred to him as the “modern elder”. Little did he know that this term of endearment sparked an idea that today is fast becoming a global movement.

    Chip was awarded “Most Innovative CEO” by the San Francisco Business Times, is the recipient of hospitality’s highest honour, the Pioneer Award, and holds a BA and MBA from Stanford University. He has authored five books and is a leading authority on the intersection of psychology and business. His latest book, Wisdom@Work: The Making of a Modern Elder was based on his experience at Airbnb and laid the foundations for his latest initiative, the Modern Elder Academy (MEA).
