Celebrating Leaders Creating a World of Impact

The YPO Global Impact Award is our highest honor to members that recognizes their impact outside of the organization, celebrating CEO impact that is both significant and sustainable.

YPO has expanded this award program and scaled it across our 14 defined regions around the globe with nominations being submitted by the YPO community. In each region, five finalists were selected and then from this group, a regional honoree was named. Of these 14 regional honorees, one is named the annual winner.
