What you need to know in YPO Global One

We fully participate in YPO regional, international and local events. Membership in YPO Global One allows you access to all YPO International events and educational opportunities including Universities, Conferences, Seminars, Executive Education and Global Conference Calls. Events blend educational and social opportunities with leading higher-learning institutions including Harvard Business School, Stanford Business School, London Business School, and more. Additionally, we have partnered with local YPO chapters around the world to offer our members access to their events. Finally, the Global One chapter is a part of the Pacific Region which has 50 chapters in nine US 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 partnered event opportunities for our members.

We connect through YPO Networks and Universities. YPO connects members around shared personal and professional interests through YPO Networks. These include Business, Personal and Social Enterprise Networks which allow you to interact with people around the globe who share similar professional and personal interests. YPO-WPO currently has more than 50 Networks and more than 700 Groups. Members may have more to share with someone on the other side of the world than a member next door, and Networks and Groups were created to facilitate that new dimension of membership. We encourage all members and significant others to fully participate in YPO Networks so that you may interact with people around the globe who share similar professional and personal interests — wine, sailing, investing, philanthropy, politics, travel, tennis and considerably more.

The Forum Experience. Forum is widely considered the most valuable experience offered to YPO members, their spouses/partners and young adult children. More YPOers and their spouses participate in Forum than any other single YPO activily. Ask any YPO member what Forum has done for them, and he or she will likely tell you that Forum has made them a better president, partner, parent and person.

We provide 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.

Virtual Education. We offer a Virtual Education Program which gives our global members the opportunity to learn from world class experts in the comfort of their home or office. Please bookmark the first Wednesday of each month at 8 am PDT, September through June, 2016. An introduction will be made via email each and every month, well in advance of each presentation. Our most recent Virtual Education session was Build Awesome Culture with Candra Canning on 22 June, 2016. Candra continues to be a driving force in the Corporate Culture World. This webinar provided a chance to get beyond culture initiatives and into the new frontier of the awe mindset. Infusing your organization with a sense of wonder and awe increases alignment, innovation, and produces extraordinary performance results. Candra gave us the opportunity to peer around the corner into the future of what nature and awe can do for your company and your most important business results. Play the video >>

Virtual Mentor Program. YPO Global One is currently implementing one of the newest and most dynamic YPO-WPO programs, a Virtual Mentoring Program. Piloted in FY12 with only eight chapters by the WPO Board, the program was a great success and has quickly grown to become one of the premiere benefits for members of our organization. Mentors are paired with mentees and both parties have found significant value from this one year partnership (one virtual meeting per month is suggested). This year, there are already 57 chapters with existing program or ones in development. Having found it to be a terrific way to gain insight beyond one’s own education and experience, participants of the program commend the unique and invaluable one-to-one networking opportunity.

Membership in YPO Global One gives you access to exclusive member events

Our membership dues are lower in YPO Global One (annual dues are: primary chapter US$1750, secondary chapter US$1500, 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.

Our latest member trip was the Festival of Inspiration in Bangalore, India. Read more.

Our 2016 Member Trip – Festival of Inspiration in Bangalore, India

The Festival of Inspiration was a two day boutique festival set amidst the extravagantly royal Leela Palace, Bangalore from April 29th-30th with Mr. Sanjay Raj as the Day Chair for the Chapter. It was an exceptional two day experience where guests were enabled to have real and personal interactions with some of the most inspiring personalities of our time, learned new intriguing concepts, evoked inspiration through stories and talks by the stalwarts of start ups, women entrepreneurs to philanthropy and finance. And the icing on the cake was the exquisitely extravagant entertainment along with heavenly epicurean delights by the top chefs at The Leela Palace, breath taking performances and pulsating dinner parties on the two nights. Over 63 people attended this truly “only in YPO” experience.
