We are excited for you to join us on this weekend retreat where we’ll connect, discuss and build projects that connect with our hearts, heads, minds and each other.

We bring the best thinkers and research into our collective conversations.  

Over 3 days you’ll work with a team of global experts to generate an action plan to implement new strategies.  Our experts come from a variety of backgrounds, and because we have a strict no solicitation policy, you can relax knowing this is not a pitch-fest.  No selling or ads whatsoever.

You’ll arrive with a clear problem you want to solve, and an opportunity you want to go after.  We’ll collaborate to help you solve this as creatively as possible.

What do you need to create a thriving business, organization, and culture?

If you’re a coach, expert or thought leader who has a heart that wants to learn and grow, and a mind that is committed to science and research, consider applying to be a member of our community.

You’ll walk away from your 3 days with clear ideas to move forward and create a lasting, thriving difference.

What Does It Mean To Be a HopeMaker?


HopeMakers sees its role as a guide, teacher, and partner for corporations that believe in serving their clients with hope, intention, and a sense of service to the planet.


Once there is hope, then there is progress. We help deliver our ideas and tools through comprehensive development, culture, and training programs.

Our approach touches every layer of an organization and helps employees at all levels and of all backgrounds understand and be empowered by their impact as individuals and as a whole. 


  • SERVE. Above all, we start with the intent to serve our higher selves and the world. Service is a core value of our team and we seek it out in everyone we invite to join our team.

  •  LISTEN. Insight and wisdom can come from anywhere, from anyone’s stories, no matter where they come from in the world or where they rank on the corporate ladder. Our work doesn’t lecture or talk at the people we work with.

  •  APPRECIATE. We are guided by the theory of Appreciative Inquiry, and as such, we are committed to looking for the positive and successful. We focus on elevating what’s working rather than excessively narrowing in on criticizing what isn’t working.  

  •  THINK BIG, THINK TOGETHER. We know that no one person on our team will have all the right ideas or solutions, and to that end we are committed to building a team with diverse skills. We also know that at every turn we are expected to think deep, collaborate, and facilitate open communication to create the best ideas and plans.

  •  M.G.S.H. We “Make Good Stuff Happen.” Ultimately, as we serve we are working to improve humanity, not build a PowerPoint deck. We do not lose sight of this goal. We don’t let ourselves get sidetracked by unnecessary or ceremonial processes and protocols that stray from this mission. Every moment is created with intention and with a direct aim to catalyze change.

If this mission, vision and values resonate with you, and joining a community that is united to make this all reality, then book a call with Greg to apply.
