You’re invited! CMO Breakfast: “Career and Life Lessons from Airbnb”

Join us Sept. 25: Private book signing and breakfast with Chip Conley

I’m pleased to invite you to our private CMO breakfast on September 25 to help you accelerate your career. This is an exclusive gathering in Bethesda, Maryland, hosted by Walker & Dunlop.

You’ll meet Chip Conley, my good friend and fellow author. He is joining us from San Francisco, CA. Chip will share his career and life lessons from his Airbnb experiences. We will also celebrate the launch of his newest book, Wisdom@Work.

Here is why this is a timely discussion for CMOs:

In the world of modern marketing, we venerate the bright, shiny, and new. In private conversations, however, many of our CEOs and CMO clients tell us they’re feeling invisible, undervalued, and threatened by the “digital natives” nipping at our heels.

Conley experienced these feelings first hand. He was a long-time hospitality CEO when he received a call from a young entrepreneur named Brian Chesky, who had recently cofounded a start-up called Airbnb. He agreed to advise and mentor these twenty-somethings.

You will walk away with pragmatic steps to help you repurpose a lifetime of marketing leadership experience and wisdom—and stay both relevant and indispensable. He will also give us insights into his current Strategic Advisor role to Airbnb’s founders.

The January 20 inauguration of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris marks a moment of liminality between separation and unity.

And it’s much more than that to me.

It’s a moment to rediscover Optimism.

For me, there were way too many times last year where optimism was fleeting. When the COVID cases and economic swings overshadowed forward movement.

Now, optimism is slowly re-entering the zeitgeist.

In the past 31 years of my career, I have deliberately avoided broadcasting and grandstanding when it came to social and political moments.

Now it’s different. America is burning, both figuratively and literally. Curfews are standard practice. The origin of “curfew” comes from the French word “couvre-feu.” This literally means cover fire.

And as a thought leader, adviser, coach, and the founder of several diverse professional communities, I can no longer cover the fire with politeness and positive thinking.
