The Global One Chapter is an international community of CEOs, committed to sharing experiences, knowledge and meaning – in business, in community and within the family unit.
Our members enjoy a flexible and dynamic opt-in Chapter Experience with in-person access to a worldwide network of peers—and the added benefit of best-in-class virtual tools and the common goal of delivering innovation and value. We connect with more colleagues in more places than any other chapter, both in person and virtually. Our phenomenal network allows us to experience different regions’ cultures and business practices through Global One Experiential Events, Membership Networks, and Forums—truly broadening our worldview.
The Global One Chapter of YPO is reinventing the Chapter Paradigm, forging new ways to connect in a global economy. We are dedicated to the intellectual, personal, and business growth of our members—all without borders.
Flexibility and Understanding your needs: Membership in Global One does not require attendance at monthly chapter meetings. We realize that our global members have busy travel schedules and family obligations. Global One members enjoy flexibility and choose among a virtual experience, regional dinners, and in-person events and trips. We also support many active, local in-person and virtual Forums in cities around the world for both members and their spouses or partners.
We provide the most flexible Forum experience in all of YPO. We offer traditional in-person Forums, in-person regional Forums, a hybrid of in-person/virtual Forums, and purely virtual Forums, all at intervals that suit you, the member! This allows your Forum experience to be flexible and as diverse as your chapter in terms of business and geography.
Our membership dues are a great value when compared to the quality of experiential learning on offer. Our members travel as they see fit to attend chapter events, regional dinners, meetings, and exclusive Experiential Learning Adventures to places like the Amazon Rainforest, Patagonia, Bhutan, and Haiti.
Leveraging development in technology, the Chapter focuses on building community and connectivity with an annual Virtual Learning series, featuring world-class experts (including YPOers) providing “Only-in-YPO” insights in personal and professional growth.

“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.
