Today, Hive has over 2,800 members in 130 countries and chapters in 22 cities globally.
Every year, we call the diverse and global Hive community together for a big annual event focused on leadership, purpose, and connection. We welcome Hive alumni (those who have come before) as well as new first-time attendees.
We bring the best of leadership training, personal growth, authentic relating, and meaningful community connection to CEOs, leaders, entrepreneurs, and innovators who are building the future and working on creating a better humanity.
The theme for 2019 is “Living Your Purpose.” We’re focused on transforming your life within the 72 hours. The gathering is focused on helping attendees get clear on why they are alive and create a clear action plan for achieving their dreams–while building a lifelong bond among those who attend.
This year we’ll be focusing on the topics of integrity, health, human connection, presence, purpose, play, community, and accountability.
Inspiring leaders and Hive alumni from the first 25 Hive Global Leaders Programs, Hive Africa, Hive Europe, Hive Pakistan, Hive Canada, and Hive India plus new Hive attendees will be in attendance for our second annual summit.

What Type of Event is This?
The Hive Global Leaders Summit (GLS) is a transformational leadership program for leaders who are committed to creating a better world. It is designed to be as a cohesive curriculum in which each component builds upon the prior part–and with a defined end result. This is not a “conference” in which you can choose which parts of the program to be at, but rather an experiential and participatory leadership program in which you must be in attendance at each session in order to continue on to the next session. The curriculum for 2019 is entirely new.
When will I have free time?
The event is structured such that from 10am until 11pm each day you will be “in the program.” There will be very little free time, if any. For your own sake, please arrange your schedule so that you can be fully present during this transformational leadership experience. Your participation is required in all activities and is necessary to support your buddy, small group, and team.
