You're invited to an unforgettable brunch with Salesforce Executive VP & Chief Innovation Officer Simon Mulcahy and Best-Selling Author & Top Hospitality Entrepreneur Chip Conley. Enjoy an intimate conversation with Simon and Chip, curated connections, and a business challenge and pitch off... over a seasonal, locally-sourced meal.
Rebel hospitality entrepreneur, Chip Conley disrupted his favorite industry... twice. At age 26 he founded Joie de Vivre Hospitality (JdV), transforming an inner-city motel into the second largest boutique hotel brand in America before selling it.
Chip then moved on, accepting the invitation of then young founders of Airbnb to transform their disruptive start-up into a global hospitality giant. He served as Airbnb’s Head of Global Hospitality and Strategy and today acts as the company’s Strategic Advisor for Hospitality and Leadership.
He is a New York Times bestselling author, and his latest, Wisdom @ Work: The Making of a Modern Elder, inspired him to build the world’s first midlife wisdom school, the Modern Elder Academy. His books have made him a leading authority at the intersection of psychology and business. Chip was awarded “Most Innovative CEO” by the San Francisco Business Times and is the recipient of hospitality’s highest honor, the Pioneer Award.
Simon Mulcahy is Executive Vice President & Chief Innovation Officer of Salesforce, a cloud-based customer relationship management (CRM) platform. He is charged with building next generation solutions to transform industries and growing Salesforce’s reputation.

Prior to Salesforce, he was Head of Technology Industries of the World Economic Forum (known for its annual summit in Davos that attracts CEOs and world leaders). In that role, he worked closely with CEOs of leading global technology companies, as well as prominent thought leaders and government leaders. He is also a Global Leadership Fellow of the World Economic Forum.
