What can fifty-somethings bring of value to companies that are mostly staffed 
and led by twenty-somethings?  How about vice versa?  The comibination provides 
a needed blending of depth with up-to-the-minute currency.  

Chip Conley, a long-time hotelier (Joie de Vivre Hospitality) and author (Peak; 
The Rebel Rules; Emotional Equations), was hired at 52 by the drastically 
youthful, disruptive startup Airbnb to be its Head of Global Hospitality and 
Strategy.  He found he was simultaneously an intern learning the digital ropes 
and a seasoned veteran mentoring the company’s leadership.  Expanding beyond 
the traditional Silicon Valley role of “executive whisperer,” Conley led the 
company’s focus on its countless hosts worldwide.  

His new book, Wisdom @ Work: The Making of a Modern Elder, makes the case for 
intergenerational savvy in organizations and explores what it takes to become a 
useful elder these days.  A jolt of rejuvenation comes with the job.

"The Modern Elder and the Intergenerational Workplace," Chip Conley, SFJAZZ 
Center, Hayes Valley, San Francisco, 7pm, Wednesday March 13.  The show starts 
promptly at 7:30pm.
