Join a group of Denters for a deep dive and interactive experience that will broaden your perspective and help you explore the practice of great teamwork.

How does psychological safety affect team performance? What can you do to increase creative collaboration in teams? How do you create a culture of productive conflict?

As always with Dent, you’ll forge relationships with other creative and entrepreneurial people that will last a lifetime, and you’ll get hands-on input from both your peers and world-class experts in some fascinating fields of work.


We’ll bring together a set of leading experts in unique and different fields of work who are ready to push our perspective on how we think and act. These speakers will lead sessions and workshops throughout the four days of Dent:Explore Maui that will broaden our perspectives and give us new ways to think about teamwork.

We’ll share the guides here as they are confirmed and added to the schedule.

What to Expect

The Dent community is filled with inspiring and motivated people who are looking to share great experiences together and accomplish big things. Your time in Maui will be personable, actionable, and social.

The schedule will provide great opportunities to learn and evaluate new frameworks for thinking and how they can apply to the challenges you are currently facing.

Strictly limited to an intimate group of people, this experience in Maui will include time spent outside the meeting room. Ka’anapali beach and the nearby areas of Maui offer all kinds of amazing experiences. We’ll enjoy a catamaran cruise, a pub crawl, a magic comedy show, great meals at fantastic restaurants, and a series of games and activities that provide the opportunity for you to forge deep and meaningful relationships with your peers.


Dent:Explore Maui features workshops and adventures on the “Valley Isle”.

Your ticket covers conference programming only, exclusive of food and lodging. Discounted lodging at The Sheraton Maui, most meals, and other activities are the responsibility of the attendees unless otherwise noted in the schedule.

Travel Tips and Information

Flying to Maui:
Maui’s major airport is in Kahului (airport code of OGG.) There are several airlines who fly from the US mainland directly into OGG. If you can take one of those flights, that would likely be optimal. If not, you’ll probably have to connect in Oahu’s Honolulu (HNL) airport.

You may notice there’s a small regional airport in Kapalua that appears to be convenient to West Maui resorts, but only inter-island flights land there, we recommend you fly into Kahului (OGG).

Transportation on the Island:
While Uber is available on the island, we recommend either renting a car or teaming up with someone who is. At this time of year rental car rates are not prohibitive. The ride from OGG to Kaanapali Beach will take close to an hour, and several of our activities and meals are in areas that are not walkable from the Sheraton.

Most people will be staying at the Sheraton Maui Resort on Ka‘anapali Beach. This is where the workshop sessions will be held, and we have negotiated a discounted rate on sleeping rooms. It is also the location of “Black Rock” which is the prominent rocky peninsula at the north end of the beach, which has a worldwide reputation as being one of the best snorkeling spots in the world. It is also a short walking distance to a myriad of shops, restaurants, and hotels (should attendees should decide to stay elsewhere.)

Making your reservation at the Sheraton Maui Resort:
We have negotiated rooms rates that currently run about 18% below the best rates we’ve discovered on Expedia. If you call 808-921-4645 and reference “Dent Explore Maui” you can book rooms for a base rate of $295.00/$260.00 for ocean view/not.

Note that these rates do not include Hawaii excise tax of 4.166% or room tax of 10.25%. There is a mandatory daily resort fee of $25.00. Note that parking is $22 per day, $30 for valet parking.

The Resort Fee Includes the Following Benefits:
* Valet parking on day of arrival (first night only)
* Unlimited wireless high-speed internet access in guest rooms, lobby, pool bars, and Hoku Rotunda
* Scheduled shuttle service to Westin Maui Resort & Spa, Westin Ka‘anapali Ocean Resort Villas, and historic Lahaina town
* Adult Pool Floats
* Signature logo Hawaiian tote bag

Additional Hotel Benefits:

Dent Maui attendees get a ten percent (10%) discount on spa treatments at the Spa at Black Rock and tickets to the “Maui Nui” Luau at the Sheraton.
