Who is in the Hive Community?

Hive Global Leaders so far include CEOs of $250 million companies, award-winning Ashoka Fellows, elected leaders, neuroscientists, Olympic Gold Medalists, Rwandan genocide-survivors turned inspiring public speakers, technology entrepreneurs, Harvard and Stanford professors, Sudanese refugees turned scientists, renewable energy investors, Nepalese activists, World Economic Forum Young Global Leaders, IDEO design thinkers, top engineers from Facebook, Google, and Apple, World Bank and UN researchers, venture capitalists, Virgin Galactic astronauts, and many more extraordinary leaders working to create a better world.

Hive isn’t a regular conference at all. It is a in-person three-day collaboration with extraordinarily talented creatives and innovators from 30+ countries designed to welcome you into an extremely high quality peer network for you throughout the rest of your life regardless of where you travel or what journey you take. The Hive community will always be with you wherever you go. At Hive, there are few handshakes and business cards exchanged, and a lot of hugs and lifelong relationships formed.

Who Attends Hive?

Over half of Hive attendees are from outside the United States and over half are CEOs, Co-founders, Managing Directors, Executive Directors or Presidents of their organizations. What each attendee has in common is a shared passion for creating a better world and living a purpose-driven life.

At Hive, you’ll have the opportunity to reimagine the future of society, reflect on your life’s purpose, create an action plan for the next phase of your life, implement daily habits that will help you make a bigger impact, and join a committed network of mission-driven leaders who can help you achieve your goals.

What Does Hive Provide?

Our flagship program, Hive Global Leaders Program (GLP) is a 3-day world class leadership training program designed to provide you:

  1. Clarity: Get clarity on your purpose, goals, habits, and action plan for the next phase of your life
  2. Confidence: Join a lifelong global network of leaders who will support you through the challenging times in your journey
  3. Community: Re-imagine the world together with a brilliant, diverse, and caring group of entrepreneurs, scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs, technologists, artists, activists, academics, athletes, writers, teachers, architects, executives, investors, international development professionals, and political leaders then join a lifelong peer community of leaders that is with you in each city you visit.

Day 1 is focused on what’s going on in the world. Day 2 is focused on what’s going on in your life. Day 3 is focused on what’s going on in your work – and how to use your work to make a scalable positive impact.

You will leave Hive inspired but also rooted in a new calm presence you bring to your work. You’ll feel grounded in new habits and in new ways of living happy and healthy lives of gratitude and joy and have a lifelong community of supporters wherever you go.

You’ll take away your framed one page life plan from Hive’s “Designing Your Life Workbook” that helps you get deep clarity on your purpose, goals, habits, and action plan for getting to the next level in your life. You’ll have time to reflect, time to learn, time to play, and time to plan your next steps as a leader as you enter this next phase of your life ahead.
