"I am so fortunate to have joined YPO and the Manhattan Chapter just over one year ago. The timing could not have been more perfect, as I was navigating the growth on of my start up company through an acquisition as well as moving my family to a new environment.
YPO and forum specially had a tremendous impact on how I navigated those critical turning points and helped me realize the mental capacity I had to persevere then and now. The guidance, experience sharing and true friendship continues to be the gift that keeps giving. I have learned so much about myself through this experience which I have now been able to share with my team and family to provide a better way of working and living together."
- Michelle Cordeiro Grant

"I joined YPO just over a year ago and it has already made a huge impact on my professional and personal growth. I’ve made some great friendships and was amazed by the intellectual level of conversations and relationships built in the YPO forum and events.
The YPO Manhattan Chapter has not only helped me become a better leader, but I feel it has also indirectly made my entire company function better, passing-on many of the insights I learn at YPO to the rest of my leadership team at Wibbitz. It’s been a true privilege so far and I'm very excited to what the future has in store.”
