EY enters global relationship with YPO as a Strategic Learning Advisor
London, 5 September 2017
- EY and YPO will exchange ideas, thought leadership and network influence to drive growth and innovation across the organizations’ global communities
EY has announced that it will work in collaboration with YPO, a leading global platform and network of more than 25,000 chief executives in more than 130 countries, whose companies represent combined annual revenues of US$6t.
Effective immediately, EY member firms will act as a Strategic Learning Advisor for YPO globally, which will enable both organizations to share and team in content and thought leadership, event collaboration and innovation-focused idea exchange. This relationship will position EY to enhance its relationships with entrepreneurs and business executives by helping them to expand their own networks, create connections, navigate disruption, drive innovation and accelerate growth.
Annette Kimmitt, EY Global Growth Markets Leader, says:
“YPO has extraordinary access to some of the world’s leading executives and entrepreneurs. At EY, we understand the power of ecosystems and their importance to entrepreneurs to support their journey as innovators and risk takers. We look forward to this strategic relationship because it will connect EY clients and people with YPO’s own members and businesses globally. This will strengthen all of our roles in helping businesses seize the upside of disruption and to accelerate their growth.”
EY and YPO will convene conversations about the challenges and opportunities facing entrepreneurs, executives and innovators. YPO members will be able to leverage this knowledge and the associated EY resources and capabilities, and apply it to their own businesses and networks.
Scott Mordell, CEO of YPO, says:
“YPO and EY share a common belief that organizations that maximize the power of exchanging ideas, unique perspectives and cultural references, are best positioned for success. As global markets shift and industries revolutionize ahead of megatrends such as artificial intelligence and blockchain, both organizations are committed to fostering growth and primed to work with more of tomorrow’s global leaders.”
