“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.”
