While at YPO, Magennis led a globally distributed, diverse team serving 30,000 CEOs in 138 countries with combined annual revenues of $9 trillion.

During my time leading the world’s foremost peer organization for CEOs, I discovered that one of the greatest myths out there is that people are born leaders.
