Each year, business leaders from around the world gather for YPO Global EDGE, YPO’s landmark event. For 2.5 days, members, their spouses, partners and invited guests from more than 125 countries convene with world-renowned thought leaders to address key issues in business, politics, philanthropy and humanities. The event, hosted on a different continent every year, offers exceptional educational opportunities for attendees while helping the global leaders of today shape the world of tomorrow.

In March 2015, Melbourne, Australia will host the EDGE for the first time. The 2015 EDGE will focus on the theme of Dreamtime, an aboriginal legend centered on the concept of creation and interconnected relationships. In Melbourne, attendees will examine their place in the world, their connections to past, present and future, and their roles as leaders in business, family, community and beyond.

Some of the leaders and entrepreneurs who have spoken to members in past years include:

“YPO Global EDGE was a phenomenal experience that challenged my thinking about both business and life. One of my key takeaways resulted in direct changes to our company’s strategy and a significant increase in performance in the following months. As a young YPOer, direct business value is a key driver of my YPO experience.”
