Who We Are

“We are an International Chapter of YPO offering a Global YPO Experience”

Please take a moment to watch this video about the benefits of the YPO Global One Chapter.

We are an International Network of Members.

We are not bound to a local city, but come together from cities around the world. This allows us to establish close business and personal relationships throughout a wider global network. When we find ourselves in a fellow member’s local area, we have a friend, help when we need it, a world of camaraderie built of mutual experience — leadership, business, family, and interests.

We are citizens of the world. Presidents of the world. We are members of YPO, the largest organization of presidents in the world, unconstrained by geography. We are inventing a new chapter paradigm, new ways to connect across the planet. We are dedicated to intellectual, personal and business growth — without borders.


We provide the most flexible and dynamic chapter experience possible. Membership in Global One does not require attendance at monthly chapter meetings. Realizing that our global members have busy travel schedules, we offer quarterly Regional Dinners. Additionally, by not meeting monthly face-to-face, we can offer our members exclusive experiential trips to such places as the Amazon Rainforest in Ecuador, Bhutan, Haiti and our most recent trip – the Festival of Inspiration in Bangalore, India! Visit the Event page to learn more >>

We deliver the most global and diverse chapter experience. Our members have the most diversity in terms of both geography and industry segments. As such, we do not have the business diversity or membership cap constraints of other local chapters. If your business is truly global in scope, then Global One is for you.

We are pioneering in the Forum experience. Global One provides the most flexible Forum experience in all of YPO. We offer traditional in-person monthly Forums, quarterly in-person regional Forums, a hybrid of in-person/virtual Forums and purely Virtual Forums. This allows your Forum experience to be as diverse in terms of business and geography as your Chapter.

We build community and connectivity through technology. Utilizing the internet, we offer a monthly Virtual Education Program featuring a unique educational topic and speaker, allowing you to connect with and learn from world class experts in the comfort of your home or office. Additionally, we utilize this site to share and connect with other members.


We understand monetary and time demands. Our membership dues are lower (annual dues: US$1750 primary chapter, US$1500 secondary chapter, US$500 temporary transfer member), to offset the greater need for our geographically dispersed members to travel to Global One events and meetings, and to free up our members’ budgets, allowing them to participate in more events and opportunities.

Meet Our Members

Buddy Teaster
CEO, Soles4Souls

“Global One is a great platform for me to participate in the parts of YPO that I find the most relevant. I am able to really dig into networks in particular and I have gotten tremendous value there, including chairing a social media event in Palo Alto. Global One made it easy to be very active there and build a truly global network. Because I know what I have to offer, and what I’m looking for, Global One gives me incredible flexibility.”

Robert Grimes
CEO & President at IFBTA

“My experience in YPO is greatly enhanced by my membership in the Global One Chapter. Global One allows me to take advantage of everything that YPO has to offer while I focus on my global business, international networking and travel schedule. Global One allows me to not only interact with other chapter members located around the world, but also take advantage of the best local events that are offered to Global One members.”

Who Are Our Members?

We are leaders. We are, all of us, presidents of corporations and organizations. Many (or perhaps even most) of us have families. We’re extremely busy and travel a great deal, domestically and globally. We are faced daily with a world of opportunity, interests and connections.

As individuals, “connection” is probably what we need most: connection to each other to share experience and experiences, advice, stories; connection to a world of events and educational opportunities. We need business connections. We need personal connection. And so, we have joined YPO Global One.

Welcome to our 2015-2016 Members

YPO Global One and YPO Pacific U.S. Region.

As of 1 July 2014, the Global One Chapter is part of the Pacific U.S. Region.

The Global One chapter is a part of the Pacific Region which has 50 chapters in 9 U.S. states. The Pacific Region fits the Global One chapter with its goals for innovation and value. It is the leader in events such as the Pacific EDGE which is held every two years. The Region offers many benefits and opens up many partner event opportunities for our members.

The 2016 Pacific U.S. EDGE Conference was held 11-12 May in Los Angeles, Califonia. The event was truly a “Best of The Best” event. This event isn’t open to everyone in YPO, but as members of the Pacific Region, Global One members were invited. In addition, Global One members enjoyed a discounted fee of US$400. A conference on this scale has NEVER been done before in YPO. Pacific EDGE 2016 featured over 75 of the most influential thought leaders in the world and more than 2300 minutes of content, discussion and debate … nearly twice as much as any other event in YPO of its kind. Entry to the event included a Rodeo Drive Block Party – an only-in-YPO experience – and one of a rare few times when the street is closed for a private event.
