  • My experience at the event was very positive. The diversity of companies and attendees turned out to be a powerful asset; it forced a welcome retreat from the industry specific business concerns that we all live and breathe every day and allowed a higher level focus on creativity, innovation and growth. I was impressed with the common solution at this level.

Think Tanks

Think Tank: The Rise Of Protectionist Policies And What IT Means For Japanese Businesses

Economic downturns and the perception of crisis have fuelled mass support for protectionist policies, as evidenced by Brexit and Donald Trump’s election, adversely affecting businesses . Inequality, rising unemployment rates, and the perception that foreigners are stealing jobs, are among the chief concerns of both British and American citizens. This interactive think tank will identify looming threats to Japanese businesses caused by these policies and brainstorm strategies to negate it.
