About the Author

Socialpreneur Chip Conley is a hospitality veteran, New York Times bestselling author, and the founder of the Modern Elder Academy (MEA). His book, Wisdom@Work: The Making of a Modern Elder, was inspired by his experience as both a mentor and an intern, well into his 50s, as Airbnb’s Head of Global Hospitality and Strategy, and is foundational to MEA’s programs. Recognized as a leading voice in "long life learning" (versus “lifelong"), Conley and his partners are expanding MEA, both online and in the U.S., continuing to transform how society views aging by cultivating and harvesting wisdom in midlife and beyond.
