Icelandic and American Executives Share Experiences

We had the pleasure of hosting a dozen members of the Empire State Young Presidents Organization (YPO) Chapter a few days ago.  YPO brings young Chief Executive Officers together to share experiences, network, and have a bit of fun at the same time.  The Empire State Chapter visited Iceland as part of their regular retreats.  We brought them together with a group of young Icelandic CEOs and elected official for an evening of mutual learning and networking.  I must say the energy emanating from both groups was quite contagious.  We are hopeful that the visit will serve as the foundation for more exchanges between our executives and even the founding of an Icelandic Chapter of YPO.
