Each year, business leaders from around the world gather for the YPO EDGE, the organization’s premier visionary showcase of thought leadership and innovation. For two days, members, their spouses/partners and invited guests from more than 130 convene with world-renowned thought leaders to address key issues in business, politics, science, technology, philanthropy and the humanities. The event, hosted on a different continent each year, offers exceptional educational opportunities for attendees while helping the global leaders of today shape the world of tomorrow.

Defy Convention

Challenging to do what is considered impossible. Easier said than done. But that is exactly what more than 2,500 business leaders from around the world will do in March 2018 as they gather in Singapore to defy conventional ways of thinking to become change agents. As one of Asia’s fastest-growing cosmopolitan cities, Singapore continues to defy conventions by becoming a regional economic powerhouse and a free-market innovator on a grand scale. With YPO’s membership increasing in the number of entrepreneurs and innovators emerging from Asia, participants will have an opportunity to share ideas and network with leaders representing many diverse cultures and business backgrounds.

“YPO EDGE (formerly 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.”
