YPO – A Global Leadership Community
YPO is the global leadership community of chief executives driven by a shared belief that the world needs better leaders. YPO members are brought together by a common desire to share ideas, to become better leaders and better people, and to make a positive difference in the lives, businesses, communities and societies that they impact.
Founded in 1950, there are now more than 31,000 YPO members spread across 130 countries. The companies they lead employ over 22 million people globally, and generate 9 trillion USD in cumulative revenue. This gives YPO, a non-profit organisation, a central role in the economic and social issues of today and tomorrow.
YPO Converge London, 16th – 18th May 2022
One of YPO’s most prestigious events, YPO Converge London, is taking place from the 16th to the 18th May 2022 in central London. With hundreds of global CEOs in attendance, the agenda is to connect over two days of informative mainstage presentations, experiential learning, peer-to-peer discussions and social activities. The aim is to explore what it means to be a more mindful and purposeful leader, and to challenge members to think and lead differently.
Geoff McDonald has been invited to be a guest speaker, and to share his insights on how CEOs can lead with mental health as a top priority, especially given the impact of the pandemic on workplaces and employees.
Previous speakers at YPO global events have included HM Queen Rania Abdullah, David Adjaye, Massimo Bottura, Sir Richard Branson, Peter Diamandis, Rahul Gandhi, Arianna Huffington, Magic Johnson, Billie Jean King, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, Trevor Noah, Steve Wozniak and Malala Yousafzai.
