Where and when does the program begin?

The Hive Global Leaders Program will officially begin at 8pm on Friday December 11, 2017 with an evening social gathering at the Loews Hollywood Hotel. We recommend ensuring your flight arrives in Los Angeles before 6:00pm to give yourself time to arrive and check-in.

Our weekend concludes on Monday at 6:00pm with a graduation ceremony. We recommend booking any departing flights on Monday after 8pm or staying the extra night to ensure you’re there for the completion of the program. Please note that no food will be provided on Friday December 8, so we recommend coming to the Opening Session having already eaten dinner.

What do I need to do before I attend?
Upload your headshot and a short biography about you by completing the form here.
We will share your profiles with the rest of your cohort a week or two prior to the program.


What should I wear? What will the weather be like?
Temperatures in Los Angeles are usually between 60 and 75 degrees F (16 to 24 C) in December. Keep it casual and relaxed and wear whatever is most comfortable for you. Bring a jacket or a sweater for the evenings or in case the room may be a bit chilly during the days. Clothing that allows for brief stretching and some light outdoor activities is recommended. There’s no need to bring any formal attire.


How should I prepare myself for Hive?
We encourage you to bring your open, authentic and compassionate selves. It is worthwhile to reflect on what you’re most passionate about, what change you want to make in the world, and why you feel you’re alive on this planet. Please spend time in advance reflecting on the answers to these questions.​​​​​​
  1. What do I want to do with the next phase of my life?
  2. Deep down, what do I feel is my purpose/calling/mission for the next few years?
  3. What am I alive to do? What do I want to leave behind when I die?​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ 
What food options are nearby?
There are many high quality and healthy food options available within walking distance of the Loews Hollywood Hotel for lunch breaks and dinners, including an adjacent mall. The hotel also has a good restaurant called Preston’s with California-inspired cuisine.​​​​​​​ 


Can I come early and stay late?
Yes, if you wish to have a few extra days in Los Angeles feel free to come early or stay late. If you have the time, we recommend checking out nearby Santa Monica or Venice Beach, stopping by Universal Studios, catching a Lakers or Clippers NBA game, or going for a hike in Griffith Park. Or for the more adventurous, take a day trip to nearby Joshua Tree or Ojai. 


What Hive events are coming up in 2018?
Hive alumni are already planning Hive events in 2018 in Nigeria, Kenya, Costa Rica, Germany, Singapore, The Phillippines, and Mexico. All Hive alumni will be invited to attend these events.
