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.

For others, double-digit dips are underway. In fact, TD Ameritrade’s stock price plummeted more than 25% in response to this bold pricing strategy….
