There’s a real buzz about the HIVE Global Leaders Program
Last month I took part in #HIVE10 – the tenth edition of the HIVE Global Leaders Program – in San Francisco, with 104 other participants from a total of 47 countries and a team of about 30 HIVE staff, including many volunteers, and it was awesome!
