Jonathan Mildenhall, the Chief Marketing Officer of Airbnb, spoke at the Skift Global Forum with Skift CEO Rafat Ali about building a culturally relevant brand.
In addition to answering the question “what was that?” in reference to Airbnb’s famous “man-kind” advertisement, Mildenhall talked about what it means to bring an outsider approach — in his case as a creative leader at Coca-Cola — to the travel industry. And he reveals in a fascinating 20-minute interview what Airbnb means when it says it means to build a brand with a different set of priorities.
