Helping Japanese businesspeople be more successful in the US

If your company is a Gold Member of JASO (or above), we have a great membership benefit for you.

From 6-8pm on Thursday March 1, up to 4 employees total may attend this workshop absolutely free of charge. The event is held in the Japanese language.

For the Japanese business person, whether an expat from a Japanese company or an individual, success in the US is about more than straight business talk. Standard Japanese business practices don’t translate directly; misunderstandings in communication or manner can lead to confusion and mistakes. Ken Sakai is a Japanese business professional from Japan with over 30 years’ experience living in the USA. During this 2-hour workshop, Ken offers valuable insights to guide the Japanese business professional to greater success.
