Chip Conley, Author, Founder JDV Hotels, Airbnb Head of Global Hospitality & Strategy
I've traveled on an existential journey with this joyful human being for over a decade - from hospitality guru to bestselling author to enlightened thought leader. We birthed four books together including his acclaimed business tome PEAK and NY Times bestseller Emotional Equations. And we launched the online festival destination magazine Fest300. Next stop? Ruminations on being a "Modern Elder." Growing with Chip has made me better. Full stop.
Amy Critchett, Founder AC Eclectic Creative Services Worldwide, Executive Producer The Bay Lights
Strategizing and helping to execute big ideas with this visionary entrepreneur has altered my view on what's possible. Winning Congressional campaigns, orchestrating a Burning Man super camp, and crafting a seemingly impossible story at its inception, The Bay Lights, are just a few of the wild and wonderful ways I've had the good fortune to collaborate with Amy. We're now hatching her latest brilliant idea...at the intersection of Art+Audience.
Nick Graham, Founder Joe Boxer, 100 Minute Company, Nick Graham
Moving through hyperspace on a cosmic roller coaster with this marketing genius taught me the finer points of creative vision...without walls. Traveling the landscapes of fashion, design, books, art, events and media, I was given the gift of working side-by-side with embodied dynamite as we built a branding practice that took stories from spark to the page to real life. A true original, Nick taught me the art of the brainstorm (keyword: generosity) and how to make something happen just by saying it's so.
With deep gratitude to an ever-growing garden of perennials...
