On Campus

View From The Top is the dean’s premier speaker series where students interview well-respected leaders from around the world who share insights on effective leadership, their personal core values, and lessons learned throughout their career.


Brian Chesky is the cofounder and CEO of Airbnb and sets the vision and strategy for the company. In 2007, Brian and Joe Gebbia became Airbnb’s first Hosts. Since then, Brian has overseen Airbnb’s growth to become a community of over four million Hosts who have welcomed more than 1 billion guests across 220+ countries and regions.

A graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, Brian has embedded his creative roots in Airbnb’s culture, product, and community. This design-driven approach has enabled a system of trust that allows strangers to live together, and created a unique business model that facilitates connection and belonging.


This event is open to current Stanford GSB community members — students, faculty, and staff — and invited guests by registration only.
