YPO EDGE 2020 Sizzler





YPO is a global leadership community of chief executives driven by our belief that the world needs better leaders. YPO EDGE, our annual thought leadership summit, creates face-to-face interactions and sharing between YPO’s global members and the top minds in business, science and academia. But the learning it creates is bigger than a two-day gathering — it’s a year-round global conversation that you can join today.

Join the Global Conversation #YPOEDGE

To jumpstart the conversation, YPO has identified four globally relevant topics affecting today’s leaders. Together, we strive to spark unexpected dialogue, to expand perspectives and to achieve greater impact in business and in life. Programming for the event will be announced soon — until then — join in on the global conversation by exploring the following breaking news, global trends and cutting-edge thought leadership.
