Established in 1950, the YPO brings together 20,000 business leaders from over 120 countries. It promotes education and the exchange of ideas, offering a safe forum for the discreet discussion of issues.
The YPO held its most recent Global Edge Summit in Los Angeles in February 2014. More than 3,000 attended the event, which was themed, “Connecting the Stars.” The theme was a reference to the summit’s goal: connecting business leaders with stars from the spheres of media, technology, sports, science, business, and the arts. The speakers included Neil deGrasse Tyson, a renowned astrophysicist, and cinema titan, James Cameron.
