Chip Conley has disrupted the hospitality industry on more than one occasion.  First as 26 year-old founder of Joie de Vivre Hospitality, which transformed an inner-city motel into the second largest boutique hotel brand in America.  Many years later he would get a call from Brian Chesky to join Airbnb as the head of Global Hospitality and Strategy.  

In this episode of Unlocked, Chip joins us virtually from Baja California Sur and shares insight on the future of hospitality and the role of vacation rentals in a post-covid world.  He also talks to us about his current effort, The Modern Elder Academy and the roles wisdom, culture, and emotional intelligence play in business.
