WS8 paves the way for a thriving New Year!
What Will You Cultivate in 2019?
Each year, Worthshop takes shape around one essential idea that focuses the event and leads the charge into the New Year. This year, we sowed the seeds for 2019 by asking attendees to slow down, be mindful, and determine what they’d like to focus on. Kauai-based therapist Rachel Piano-Pooley kicked off the conference series by leading the group of 260+ attendees in a guided meditation, demonstrating to a room of high-octane realtors just a few of the benefits of mindfulness.
In 2019, many of us are making New Year’s resolutions. We’re setting goals and perhaps searching for the one word that crystallizes our hopes for 2019 – our word for the year. In 2019, what will you cultivate? This was the question we asked more than 260 enthusiastic Worthshop 8 attendees at our annual conference in mid-December, held at the stunning Mauna Kea Beach Hotel on the Big Island of Hawaii. Coach and speaker Jody Burr asked attendees to write down their answers to this question, and she’ll be mailing each attendee their notes soon!
Worthshop 8 Was A Sold-Out Success!
Worthshop 8 was a sold-out event that incorporated fascinating speaker sessions, professionally produced musical performances under the moonlight, 7-waterfall hikes, catamaran sailing and snorkeling, a luxury Big Island real estate tour, a pop-up art gallery, prize giveaways, a live art auction of a beautiful work by a local artist, an island lu‘au, and more. All of this in one of the most incredible natural settings along the white sands and turquoise waters of Kauna‘oa Bay, with volcanic peaks as a backdrop.

At Hawaii Life, we’ve focused doing things in our own unique way and Worthshop is one such example. Worthshop 8 is the eighth iteration of our conference series and Hawaii’s ONLY real estate conference. The event is held each year in a unique and beautiful Hawaii location.
Worthshop 8 delivered on its promise of inspiration, creative ideation, and forums for exchanging ideas. We are grateful to Worthshop’s powerful lineup of speakers for their expertise, time and commitment to this year’s powerful theme – Cultiv8. As is evidenced by this incredible lineup of speakers, Worthshop brings together our industry’s brightest, most thoughtful minds:

Mahalo to Worthshop 8 Sponsors
Mahalo nui loa to this year’s generous sponsors for supporting Worthshop 8. Zillow Group was this year’s marquis sponsor, hosting the final evening’s beachfront lu‘au dinner and wrap party. Howard Hughes Corporation hosted a beautiful lunch, while other sponsors invited small groups on morning catamaran sail & snorkel trips, waterfall hikes, local luxury real estate and art gallery tours. In a word, they underwrote the off-site excursions, meals and gatherings that are such a big part of each year’s event, inviting industry pros to mix and mingle. Worthshop 8 attendees got to see a bit of the beautiful Kohala Coast courtesy of their generosity and support this year.
